Jameson was sentenced to three years of informal probation aside from the monetary fines in the amount of $340.00 that she was required to pay. Moreover, the porn legend was also ordered to participate in a Mothers Against Drunk Driving “victim’s impact panel”.
The former porn royalty was initially charged with three misdemeanor counts, one for driving under the influence, one for having blood-alcohol content (BAC) level over the state legal limit, and one for driving on a suspended license. However, on Aug. 16, Jameson’s charge for suspended license was dropped.
The actress-turned-author was arrested last May 25, after her Range Rover rammed into a pole in Westminster. Jameson sustained injuries from the incident but refused medical assistance. She was taken into custody by the Westminster authorities following the incident but was later released upon paying her bail.
Jameson’s field sobriety test result revealed that her BAC level was 0.13, which exceeded the state legal limit of 0.08. Also, at least two prescription drugs, zolpidem and buprenorphine, were found in her system.
According to Jameson’s legal counsel, the 38-year-old porn legend was apologetic and grateful since nobody was seriously injured from the incident.
For the purpose of traffic law enforcement, BAC is set to determined intoxication and provides an estimated measure of a driver’s impairment. Although the level of impairment may vary among individuals with the same alcohol content, the same can be measured objectively. Therefore, it is lawfully useful and difficult to appeal in court. In most countries, driving under the prescribed levels of BAC is prohibited for the purpose of reducing car accidents caused by drunk drivers, explained a Los Angeles car accident attorney.
