Pelosi’s Husband Gets Jailtime for DUI

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband pleaded guilty to DUI causing injury in Napa County on Tuesday morning.

Paul Pelosi was sentenced by Napa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Solga to serve five days in jail, pay more than $6,000 in fines, and enroll in a 3-month-long DUI class. Paul Pelosi did not appear in the courtroom. His defense attorney, Amanda Bevins, appeared in court for him and submitted his plea in writing.

Paul Pelosi, 82, was driving on Highway 29 near Oakville Cross Road when his Porsche was hit by a Jeep. California Highway Patrol officers blamed Pelosi for causing the crash because he was under the influence of alcohol. The Jeep driver was injured in the wreck.

Judge Solga sentenced Paul Pelosi to five days in jail and three years probation. He will have to complete a licensed DUI program for three months, pay nearly $7,000 in fines, and must equip his vehicle with an ignition device for a year.

A CHP officer at the crash scene said Paul Pelosi appeared to be drunk.

“His eyes appeared red/watery, he was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath. CHP determined Mr. Pelosi was the proximate cause of the collision,” the CHP officer wrote in an arrest report.

A blood sample was taken from Paul Pelosi two hours after the crash. “Mr. Pelosi’s blood sample had a .082% blood alcohol content,” prosecutors wrote. It is illegal to drive in California with a Blood Alcohol Content of 0.08% or more.

I just wanted some more information on the topic in this article. And it gives me plenty of unnecessary staff. I wish I got the details on compacom.com as I used to do before. Experiments are not always good. Sometimes an old trustful resource is worth sticking to it.

I thought sure it would be only overnight! THE THEATER OF THE LEFT CONTINUES – AND THE AVERAGE AMERICAN STILL MOVES FORWARD COMPLETELY, TOTALLY, AND UTTERLY CLUELESS

Did he get the same jail time as the average citizen? Where will they send him? a hospital? They should have nailed him for trying to bribe an officer with privileged status. ———– I, Grampa
