Kim Richards escaped another trip to the pokey today as she successfully convinced a judge that she had made sufficient progress with her community labor and AA meetings. According to the TMZ story she went before the judge in the Target shoplifting case He seemed to be the more lenient of the two judges in the first place.
I previously posted that it seemed as though Kim was working with a wild horse sanctuary to clock her community service hours. It seemed as though she would be going to help with the Malibu sanctuary’s move to Oregon last weekend. As it turns out, Kim simply went to say good-bye to the horses before their departure.
Also, there has been some confusing reporting on the actual amount of time she needed to serve for community labor. I looked back at the original report and the ruling was for 300 hours. It was also reported as “30 days” which is not how the sentence is generally measured. It is measured by hours so that the time can be measured in any hourly increments. I find the current report by TMZ to be a bit inaccurate.
Apparently the judge found enough evidence of progress to have her return to court in November for another review. She remains on probation.
As I looked into the horse sanctuary’s social media, I noted that they had named a wild mustang they recently rescued “Kimmy” after Kim Richards.
They had this to say about Kimmy, “Kimmy was sent to a wonderful mustang trainer but after several months it was obvious she was not going to be a candidate for re-homing. And now we know why !!! She is most certainly an alpha mare, which is fine here as she has plenty of room to boss and bitch at all the other girls and they don’t seem to mind at all so its fine. But she sure does kick up a lot of dust.”
Seems like the perfect namesake to me.
