Since Luann got out of rehab, she has done a ton of things. She’s filmed with RHONY and finally made it to South America, she she’s done her cabaret show, she’s released a song with James Kennedy, she’s gotten a new boyfriend, she’s been sued by her family, and she’s relapsed and gone back to rehab.
As soon as she was out of rehab her attorney moved forward with a plea deal. The Florida state attorney declined to prosecute two counts of corruption by threat and battery on a law enforcement officer that the arresting officer initially charged her with. She was then formally charged with resisting an officer with violence, trespassing an occupied structure and disorderly intoxication. The first charge is a felony and the other two are misdemeanors. This was a step in the right direction.
The plea deal has her pleading guilty to one of the misdemeanors, I’d presume it is the disorderly intoxication charge although Duncan didn’t specify. The other charges will be dropped.
But here is the interesting part. On July 25th, Duncan will appear in court on Luann’s behalf to officially enter the plea. Then the judge will WITHHOLD ADJUDICATION of the charges. This basically means that she will not be convicted on the misdemeanor charge either. She will be put on probation and as long as she keeps her nose clean, she will have no convictions on her record and the entire thing will be forgotten about.
Today TMZ is reporting that she’ll be placed on probation for a year. She’ll have to complete 50 hours of community service and attend two AA meetings a week in NY, where she lives. Luann cannot consume alcohol or drugs and must submit to random testing. She also had to write an apology letter to the cop she hit. This is a bit weird since her court date was not supposed to be until Wednesday. Supposedly, the judge had not signed off on it yet. But everything seems to be going according to plan.
