By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/10/2013
Lamar Odom has reached a plea deal in his DUI case that gives him a three-year probation sentence and requires him to attend a three-month alcohol-education program.
The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office has on record that Odom's attorney entered a no-contest plea on his client's behalf on Monday in Superior Court in Van Nuys, CA, People reported.
Khloe Kardashian's husband, 34, will also reportedly be required to pay $1,800 in fines and penalties. He was not present at the latest court hearing.
Odom, who is reportedly hoping to sign a contract with the Los Angeles Clippers again, had pleaded not guilty to his DUI charge in early October.
The NBA basketball free agent was arrested on August 30 for driving under the influence at 3:54AM by the California Highway Patrol after he was observed driving slowly in a "serpentine manner" on the 101 Freeway and showed "objective signs of intoxication," People reported.
After being taken into custody, Odom was taken to a jail in Van Nuys, CA before he was released on $15,000 bail, according to LA's County Sheriff's Department.
