'Keeping Up' star Khloe Kardashian finishes probation requirements
By John Bracchitta, 11/18/2008
Khloe Kardashian has finally paid her dues to society.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star was told she had finished her probation to-do list stemming from her 2007 DUI arrest during a progress report at a Van Nuys, CA courtroom on Monday, E! News reported yesterday.
"Khloe has completed all court-ordered requirements," attorney Shawn Chapman Holley told E! News. "She successfully completed the alcohol program and the HAM [hospital and morgue] program. She's a superstar."
Kardashian's "to-do list" included attending an alcohol-treatment class and paying a visit to a local morgue, E! News reported.
Despite finishing the requirements, Kardashian will still technically remain on probation. However Commissioner Thomas Grodin had not scheduled any additional hearings regarding Kardashian's case, according to E! News.
Kardashian was sentenced last August to 36 months probation, community service with the California Department of Transportation, and was also ordered to complete an alcohol-education program after she pleaded no contest to driving under the influence on March 4, 2007.
However, after failing to complete her alcohol-education program or the community service, Kardashian was was ordered to re-enroll in the education program and sentenced to 30 days in a Los Angeles County jail in July because her community service was no longer an option.
Because of overcrowding of the L.A. County jails, Kardashian's actual sentence only ended up being five hours, according to E! News.
Khloe frequently appears on E!'s Keeping up with the Kardashians reality series, which mostly focuses on the exploits of her older sister Kim Kardashian. Earlier this fall, she also competed on the second season of The Celebrity Apprentice, which is scheduled to premiere on NBC in January.
