Luann De Lesseps’ plea deal regarding her December 2017 arrest was approved by a judge in a court of law this week. According to Radar Online, the reality star’s deal with the citizens of the United States was made official on the 29th of August, Wednesday.
The Real Housewives Of New York City alum pleaded guilty to battery, trespassing, and disorderly intoxication. As per her agreement with the state, the actress agreed to 50 hours of community service, two AA meetings, as well as attendance at a Mothers Against Drunk Driving class.
Additionally, the personality can’t use alcohol or drugs and is subjected to spontaneous testing to ensure she hasn’t relapsed while serving her one-year probationary sentence. While that may seem like a lot, the RHOA star managed to dodge more critical charges, including resisting arrest with violence against a police officer.
In a report from Radar Online, the publication claims that De Lesseps was looking at a felony charge due to resisting an officer with violence, but they reduced that to battery. She also had to write an apology to the arresting officer.
Back in December of 2017, the police detained Luann for trespassing in a hotel room and locking herself in the bathroom. When the police cuffed her, she screamed, “I’m going to kill you, I’ll kill you! I’ll kill you!”
During an interview with Us Weekly, Luann said she was having a rough time and has since moved past it. “Everything is going in that direction for me, so I feel very positive.”
However, Luann went back into rehab again in July shortly before leaving for her cabaret tour.
As for how it all got started, Luann said she had a few drinks one evening, which eventually turned into 3 or 4, and then she started drinking beers. Subsequently, the reality star blacked out and that’s when the incident occurred.
