House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Husband, Paul Pelosi, has now officially pleaded ‘not guilty’ to drunk driving charges.
As The Hill reports:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband, Paul Pelosi, has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor driving under the influence charges.
Paul Pelosi, 82, did not show up in person at Napa County Superior Court on Wednesday and his attorney, Amanda Bevins, entered his not guilty pleas, which is permissible by California law for DUI misdemeanor defendants.
The case was filed as a misdemeanor due to the injuries of the 48-year-old driver of the 2014 Jeep that was involved in a crash with Paul Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche. However, the injuries of the Jeep driver were not described and further information on the defendant was not given because of the person’s request for privacy.
Paul Pelosi was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in May while driving late at night in Northern California’s wine country. The incident happened while the Speaker was preparing a commencement speech in Rhode Island for Brown University.
If he is convicted Pelosi could face a minimum of five days in jail and up to five years of probation.
