Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih -- Dodges Jail in DUI Case

Breaking News

Disgraced former Miss USA Rima Fakih has managed to avoid the slammer in her DUI case ... as long as she can stay out of trouble for the next 6 months.

A Michigan judge sentenced the 26-year-old beauty queen to 6 months probation and 20 hours of community service ... after she pleaded no contest last month to driving while visibly impaired back in December.  Fakih must also complete an alcohol education course.

As we previously reported, cops say Fakih was disoriented and was slurring her speech after she was pulled over for speeding and weaving through traffic.

Cops also say Fakih's blood alcohol level was more than DOUBLE the legal limit ... and claim she had a half-empty bottle of wine on the floorboard behind the driver's seat.
