Gayheart gets off light
Nov 28, 2001 by Ian Evans
Rebecca Gayheart will not be going to jail for a traffic accident that killed a boy back in June.
Gayheart pleaded no contest and instead of facing up to a year in jail will instead be sentenced to three years’ probation, a one-year suspension of her license, a $2,800 fine and 750 hours of community service.
The 29-year-old actress will also have to make a public-service announcement. She still faces civil charges in a wrongful-death suit filed by the boy’s parents.
