Jenna Jameson: Ex-porn star pleads guilty to DUI

- Associated Press - Friday, August 17, 2012

WESTMINSTER, Calif. (AP) — Former adult film star Jenna Jameson has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence when she struck a light pole in Southern California.

Jameson was sentenced Thursday to three years of informal probation and ordered to pay $340 in fines and participate in a Mothers Against Drunk Driving "victims' impact panel."

A misdemeanor charge of driving without a valid license was dismissed.

Jameson was arrested May 25 after her Range Rover struck the pole in Westminster, resulting in minor injuries. Prosecutors in Orange County say tests showed her blood-alcohol level was 0.13 percent. That's above the state's legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Jameson's attorney, John Kremer, tells City News Service that Jameson is apologetic and thankful nobody was seriously hurt.

Jameson crossed into the mainstream after publishing a popular autobiography in 2004.
