Jessica Simpson’s dad Joe Simpson got a DUI earlier this month, now he’s been ordered by a judge to stop drinking alcohol!
No alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet as of yet, but until his arraignment in September he’s got to be totally sober.
Telling a first time DUI convict to stay away from alcohol is a strange order.
Joe’s lawyer was Shawn Holley, the same woman who represents Lindsay Lohan. Clearly Shawn Holley does well for rich alcoholics.
Joe was slapped with two misdemeanor counts of DUI on August 4 while allegedly driving through a DUI checkpoint in Sherman Oaks, Calif. He blew a .12 on the breathalyzer.
But if Joe is convicted on both counts, he could face up to a year in jail, but since he’s a pseudo celebrity and has no history with jail time, he’ll probably just get a slap on the wrist aka a fine and some community service time.
