After pleading no contest to a single count of driving while intoxicated, Rebecca DeMornay has to serve in a three-month program for DUI offenders. She also has been put on probation for three years and been fined a small amount.
DeMornay, 48, who starred in “Risky Business” (1983) with Tom Cruise, “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle” (1992) and “Backdraft” (1991) among others, was arrested October 30 after being pulled over on Sunset Blvd. Police say her blood alcohol level was slightly over the legal limit of .08.
A Queens County Criminal Lawyer can inform you of the penalties you may face if you drive after drinking. He can also advise you of what to do if you are stopped while driving under the influence and what your rights are under the different circumstances which may exist at the time you are stopped or arrested.
It appears from informed sources and the Court’s sentence that Ms. DeMornay had good representation. DeMornay’s attorney entered a no contest plea on her behalf to a single count of driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit.
