Olympian 18-time gold winner for swimmimg, Michael Phelps is a lawyer's dream. He made all the right moves. As a result, he will serve no jail time for his second DUI. Instead he will have 18 months supervised probation, reports Meg Wagner in the New York Daily News.
For the second DUI and it's smart for the first too, the required actions include:
- Pleading guilty, which Phelps did in Baltimore
- Expressing remorse, as Phelps did on Twitter
- Going into rehab, which Phelps did for six weeks.
But all that has nothing to do with any clarity that booze is the enemy and can end an athletic career. Time will tell if Phelps is serious about preventing a third DUI.
