The Leave it to Lamas star and former The Bachelor: London Calling winner pleaded no contest on Monday to a "wet reckless" charge stemming from the DUI arrest, L.A. City Attorney's Office spokesman Frank Mateljan told E! News.

"Wet reckless" is a lesser charge than DUI and can be substituted for it when there's a non-injury accident, according to E! News, which added it is still treated the same way by insurance companies and counts as a DUI on a person's record if he/she is convicted of another DUI within 10 years.

The 24-year-old Lamas was sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to undergo alcohol education and complete the L.A. County Morgue program, E! News reported, adding she was also fined $300.

Lamas was arrested last month on a suspicion of DUI charge in Venice, CA.

"Early Saturday morning, after consuming one drink, I willingly drove through a mandatory check point on my way home with complete confidence of passing," said Lamas in a statement at the time.

"However, the breathalyzer indicated that I was over the legal limit of blood alcohol content and was arrested onsite. I take full responsibility for my lack of judgment."

Lamas was scheduled to face the misdemeanor charge on December 9 however she preemptively pleaded no contest to the lesser "wet reckless" charge.

Lamas received the final rose and a marriage proposal -- both of which she accepted -- from The Bachelor: London Calling star Matt Grant during the show's pre-taped May 2008 finale.

Despite insisting they were in love, the couple eventually called off their engagement that July after a report surfaced that she had cheated on him, which she subsequently denied.

Leave it to Lamas premiered on E! in October and follows the lives of Lamas and her immediate family members.
