Nancy Pelosi's husband pleads guilty to DUI charge, sentenced to 5 days in jail

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband pleaded guilty to a DUI charge in California on Tuesday and was sentenced to five days in jail.

— although he's unlikely to serve any further time behind bars, authorities said.

Paul Pelosi, 82, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury, the Napa County district attorney's office said in a statement.

He was sentenced to five days in jail and three years of probation stemming from a May 28 crash in Napa County, north of San Francisco.

Pelosi was not in court Tuesday, and his lawyer entered the guilty plea on his behalf.

In addition, as part of his probation, Pelosi will have to "immediately enroll in, pay for, and successfully complete a licensed DUI program for 3 months," according to the DA's statement, and pay almost $7,000 in fines.

He will also be limited, for one year, to driving a car equipped with an ignition interlock device that would require him to provide a breath sample before the engine starts, prosecutors said.

A blood sample taken after the collision found Pelosi had a blood alcohol content of 0.082%, prosecutors had said. The legal limit in California is 0.08%.
