Mischa Barton Pleads No Contest

Former O.C. star Mischa Barton will plead no contest to DUI at her arraignment Thursday in Beverly Hills court, and is expected to serve a three-year unsupervised probation term, sources tell People.

Mischa, 22, will also be sentenced to a three-month alcohol-education class, and pay a fine of approximately $1,700.

In December 2007, Mischa was pulled over by police officers after she was seen driving her Range Rover on two lanes and failing to signal when she made a turn. She was then taken to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s station, booked and released on a $10,000 bail.

    ummm….she was also driving without a license and had marijuana in her possesion. i guess those aren’t considered to be very big deals either??? celebs sure do seem to be above the law. sorta makes me feel a little bit ill.

    I think the DA knows the situation with the jail overcrowding. I hope she stays straight and don’t break probation

    If ishe wasn’t a celeb the consequences would have been much steeper. Anyone who looks past this and says oh she’s great ,is star struck and doesn’t realize the gravity of the offenses. But hell Nicole Richie can drive the wong way be high as a kite and get a hand slap. Skewed punishment you bet.

    Well Mischa is starting over and putting that behind her! She’s still a fantastic actress and will always will be, but no one is perfect, she made a big mistake and is learning to deal with it responsibly. Go Mischa Barton!!!!!!

    I do not care if she wants to destroy herself. She is old enough to think that fame is not forever. But, when she drives drinking, then she puts everybody else in danger. Then, she crosses my personal line. Celebs like this do not need anybody sympathy. They shall work in a hospital, and take care of traffic accident’s victims! Jail is too easy for them!
