Paul Pelosi pleaded guilty on Tuesday to misdemeanor DUI charges and won't spend any additional time in jail time after already serving two days and receiving conduct credit for two other days, Napa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Solga said.

Pelosi’s attorney said that the court ordered the 82-year-old to complete the remaining day through the court work program, which converts one day of jail into eight hours of community service.

Judge Solga dismissed a second charge against Pelosi for driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08%.

Pelosi was driving a 2021 Porsche and crashed into a 2014 Jeep driven by a 48-year-old in Napa County, the California Highway Patrol said in May. He was arrested and administered a blood test that showed 0.082% blood alcohol content, according to the Napa County district attorney’s office. He pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol, causing injury.

The businessman and owner of a venture capitalist firm has been married to Nancy Pelosi since 1963.
