NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, who is married to a multimillionaire, admitted on Tuesday to driving while intoxicated and causing injury in connection with earlier drunk driving allegations.
Pelosi’s plea deal calls for a five-day jail sentence, but Judge Joseph Solga pointed out that he had already received credit for four days—two for actual time served and two for good behavior. An eight-hour work schedule will be followed for the rest of the day.
A three-month alcohol education program, one year of ignition interlock use, restitution obligations, and three years of probation are also part of the penalty.
In accordance with the terms of the deal, Pelosi admitted to breaking California Vehicle Code 23153(a), and a second charge was dropped for the sake of justice.

Pelosi was not present in court, but the speaker’s wife’s attorney, Amanda Bevins, spoke in the courtroom in Napa County, California, on his behalf.
Pelosi initially entered a plea of not guilty to two charges earlier this month after allegedly colliding with another car on May 28 while under the influence of alcohol. Responding cops discovered Pelosi in the driver’s seat of his damaged automobile close to the intersection of California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road. Both his 2021 Porsche and the other driver’s 2014 Jeep experienced “severe collision damage” in the incident.
In accordance with court records, Pelosi was pulled over and handed his California Highway Patrol 11-99 (CHP 11-99) Foundation membership card to the responding officers. As a result of the event, the organization informed Fox News Digital earlier this month that it was evaluating Pelosi’s membership.

Later, Pelosi was charged with two misdemeanors in a case that usually starts with a felony booking. Investigators and Bevins claim that the speaker’s husband was “cite released” from the custody of the Napa County Department of Corrections, which means that he was not required to post bail in order to return home. Right now, he is being released on his own recognizance.
