Nancy Pelosi’s Spouse Paul Pelosi Gets Five Days for DUI
Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul Pelosi sentenced to five days in jail for drunk driving
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, has pleaded guilty to drunk driving in California, Reuters reports.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was sentenced to five days in jail and ordered to pay a $6,800 fine. However, the judge gave him a four-day credit for the time already served in prison since his arrest. The remaining sentence of one day of imprisonment will be commuted to community service.
Paul Pelosi will have to spend the fifth day in corrective labor:
At the same time, the judge counted him four days – two spent under arrest, and two for exemplary behavior. He will have to spend the fifth day in corrective labor. In addition, Pelosi will have to attend a three-month course on the dangers of drunk driving.
In addition, a special ignition interlock system will be installed in his car, which allows you to check the driver’s breath for alcohol before starting the engine. According to the judge, he will also have to pay a nearly $7,000 fine.
Paul Pelosi, a venture capital executive, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after he was involved in a two-car accident. Police said his Porsche collided with a jeep while crossing the highway, although no one was seriously injured.
Although Paul Pelosi avoided additional jail time, his car will have an alcohol lock for one year. He will also have to complete a three-month training course designed to reduce the risk of drunk driving in the future.
Nancy Pelosi was in Rhode Island at the time of the incident:
His wife, who holds the third most important position in the US power structure after the president and vice president, was in Rhode Island at the time of the incident to speak at Brown University.
Paul Pelosi has been married to Nancy Pelosi since 1963. They have five children and nine grandchildren.
Previously, Nancy Pelosi held a tour of Asia. Her visit to Taiwan, where she “reaffirmed the unwavering US commitment to supporting democracy on the island,” caused a stir and escalated tensions in East Asia as tensions escalated between the US and China.
On Tuesday, the day of the verdict, the California Highway Patrol released video footage of police actions after the accident, recorded by the patrol car’s camera. It turned out that after the accident, Paul Pelosi, in addition to his driver’s license, also handed over to the active patrols a card of an organization that helps the police. The 11-99 Foundation supports police officers and provides scholarships to their children.
The tape is assessed to support the assertion in the police report that there were “objectively” identifiable signs of intoxication. After the accident, Pelosi was arrested, and an alcohol test showed that the alcohol content in his blood was 0.082 percent, which is two thousandths above the legal limit.
At the start of the trial, several government advocacy groups called on the court not to enforce any “exceptional judgment” in the case of the husband of the speaker of the House of Representatives.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not comment on the verdict, and her office said it was a personal matter. However, the Paul Pelosi case discredits influential Democrat Nancy Pelosi ahead of a key U.S. midterm election.
Earlier, the California Highway Patrol reported that on May 29, Pelosi was driving on a state highway in Oakville and a 2014 Jeep crashed into his 2021 Porsche. The 48-year-old driver of the jeep was injured in the collision, prosecutors said.
At the end of May, Paul Pelosi was arrested in California for drunk driving. The man was charged with two state traffic violations at once. According to the report, his blood alcohol content exceeded the legal limit of 0.08%. He was then released on $5,000 bail.
Nancy Pelosi was at that time on the east coast of the United States, she spoke at the graduation ceremony for graduates of Brown University in Rhode Island.
