Christina West will avoid a criminal conviction thanks to a plea agreement entered earlier this week.
West pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless driving on Monday. West was originally arrested in August 2013 for DUI and felony battery and assault.
Because of the agreement, West won’t be convicted of a crime. West’s attorney Fred Conrad spoke with WCTV today about the decision.
“We felt like we had a very strong case to litigate but given the injuries that my client suffered at the hands of 500 pounds of cop, we knew that prolonged litigation at this juncture would be detrimental to her health,” said Conrad. “Right now, she needs to be concentrating on at least getting better.”
Conrad says West will serve six months of probation and be tested for for drugs and alcohol for the first three months.
