Real Housewife of Orange County Shannon Beador will avoid jail time in her DUI hit-and-run case after a California judge settled on three years of probation.
The troubled reality star was handed her sentence on Thursday. She was given 36 months of informal probation plus fines and fees.
The Bravo staple did not show up to court herself, rather she had her attorney appear on her behalf to enter her plea of no contest to one count DUI and one count driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more.
The judge dismissed the single count of hit-and-run with property damage.

Legal documents originally obtained by TMZ revealed that Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer attempted to convince the judge to dole out a sentence of 30 days in jail.
Beador, 59, was arrested in September after she crashed her car into a Newport Beach home.
Video surveillance footage shows Beador speeding through a residential area before smashing her car into the side of a house.
In the legal documents, DA Spitzer wrote that Beador had a .24 percent Blood Alcohol Content ahead of the crash – three times the legal limit.
Beador walked away from the crash with a fractured left wrist, in addition to cuts and bruising to her left eye.
She has since paid for the property damage to the house she hit.
Following her September arrest, Beador’s lawyer Michael Fell told DailyMail.com: ‘Shannon is extremely apologetic and remorseful. We will be awaiting the official information on this case as it becomes available, and Shannon is prepared to accept full responsibility for her actions.’
In the wake of the accident, Beador told her fans and followers that she is ‘focusing on getting healthy, getting back to myself and walking Archie (her dog).’

It has been a tough year for Beador whose beau John Janssen blindsided her by splitting in November 2022 after nearly four years of dating.
John broke up with Shannon shortly after filming for season 17 of RHOC had wrapped, but she did not go public with their split until January.
Shannon made her relationship with John official on Instagram in July 2019 after ending her tumultuous marriage to David Beador.
The reality star has daughter Sophie, 21, and twin daughters Stella and Adeline, 19, with ex-husband David.
