Actor John Stamos pleads no contest to DUI charge

Missouri TV fans may find it interesting that former "Full House" and "ER" star John Stamos pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor count of DUI on Nov. 24, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. The 52-year-old was not present in court, choosing to enter his plea through his lawyer. A no contest plea means a defendant neither admits nor denies a charge, and it serves as an alternative to pleading guilty or not guilty.

Stamos, who can currently be seen on the FOX TV series "Grandfathered," was arrested in Beverly Hills on June 12 after he was spotted driving in an erratic manner. Authorities took him to a local hospital, where he was found to be under the influence of a drug. The exact substance was not identified during court proceedings.

Stamos was sentenced to three months of probation. He was also ordered to enroll in educational classes designed for first-time DUI offenders, attend 52 alcohol and substance abuse meetings based on the 12-step program and complete two hours of alcohol and drug addiction therapy.

Missouri residents charged with driving while intoxicated could face severe penalties, including license suspension, lengthy prison terms and steep fines. However, first-time offenders may be able to avoid jail time with the help of an attorney. For example, legal counsel could negotiate with prosecutors for constructive alternatives to jail time, such as probation, enrollment in substance abuse and educational programs or the completion of community service. If the prosecution's case is weak, an attorney may advise fighting the charges by disputing the accuracy of breathalyzer or field sobriety tests, which could lead to a dismissal of charges.
