John Stamos has pleaded no contest to a count of DUI, and will serve a sentence that includes three years’ probation and mandatory enrollment in Alcoholics Anonymous.
Prosecutors announced Tuesday (Nov. 24) that they had reached a plea deal with the star of FOX’s “Grandfathered” and the upcoming “Fuller House.” The arrangement concludes a legal matter that began when Stamos was arrested by Beverly Hills police on June 12 after responding to reports that he had been driving erratically.
As part of the plea deal, Stamos will have to enter a three-month alcohol abuse program, attend two hours of drug and alcohol addiction counseling from a private physician, and attend 52 AA meetings. He will also be on probation for the next three years.
“I lost my mother last year, who was the love of my life — obviously a difficult time for me,” he explained. “I had this moment, I had some time off and I had a decision to make. So I took advantage of the time and I made a choice [to go to rehab], and I’m just so grateful that I did.”
