Luann de Lesseps is one step closer to avoiding prison time for her assault of a police office back in December.
The Real Housewives of New York star and her lawyer has signed off on a Plea in Absentia ahead of her court
appearance later this week that was obtained by DailyMail.com and will likely keep her out of prison.
As part of the deal, which was also signed by her attorney and sent to the Office of the State Attorney in Palm Beach, de Lesseps agrees to plead guilty to charges of resisting an officer with violence, trespass in an occupied structure and disorderly intoxication.
In exhange for those guilty pleas, the attorney for the state will ask the judge that de Lesseps receive a year probation rather than the over two years of prison time those charges carry.
De Lesseps, 53, also states in her affidavit that she will ‘pay all applicable fines and court costs,’ ‘perform 50 hours of community service for a non-profit organization,’ ‘attend 2 AA meetings a week,’ not possess or consume ‘alcohol, illegal drugs with random testing’ at her expense,’ and attend a ‘Victim Impact Class put on by Mother’s Against Drunk Driving.’
The reality star was expected to be in court per the judge’s orders after moving her hearing date from May 25 to this Thursday, but is now unable to attend after entering into a rehab facility earlier this month.
