“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Alexa Curtinhad a big day in criminal court last week. The reality star is finally facing the music after pleading guilty to multiple criminal counts against her.
Alexa has been in and out of jail and court while dealing with her legal drama. We broke the story, she had been a fugitive for almost a year before finally appearing in court last week.
According to court records, obtained by The Blast, Alexa Curtin appeared in an Orange County court last week, and pled guilty to a long list of criminal counts of possession of a controlled substance and substance paraphernalia, driving under the influence, driving without a valid license, vandalism, and petty theft.
Alexa was sentenced to informal probation for a period of three years, 68 days in jail, a three month first offender alcohol program, and restitution for damages she had caused in the process.
In many criminal cases, especially with overcrowded jails, some defendants who are sentenced to jail time can get “time served” and get released the same day they are sentenced (depending on the crime they have pled guilty to). In Alexa Curtin’s case, she had served jail time before her sentencing hearing, and records show she was released the same day she was sentenced. Alexa had five separate criminal cases before a judge and she was sentenced in four of the five of the cases on one day. One tiny victory for the reality star was that a case for possession of a controlled substance was thrown out.
Alexa had previously pled guilty to counts of petty theft and battery from a criminal case filed against her back in 2016, and she was facing a probation violation for that prior criminal case. She was sentenced to 68 days in jail for that case, and court records show that her probation has ended for that particular case. Alexa could have faced serious jail time with her lengthy criminal history and being in violation of her probation. Alexa is not getting a free pass per say, but her sentence could have been a lot worse for the reality star. Some judges will sentence multiple offenders to original sentences when they violate probation.
As we previously reported, Alexa Curtin not only faced legal trouble for her drug issues, her marriage also ended in the process. After six years of marriage, Alexa filed for divorce from her estranged husband Michael DeVecchio. In other ‘RHOC’ drama, it has been reported that Alexa’s mom, Lynne Curtin had been served with an eviction notice for her rental property, and Alexa and her sister Raquel broke the news to their famous mom while filming their reality show!
