SNOOKI POLIZZI, the reality television star who has been on trial for disorderly conduct, has been spared a jail sentence, reports the New York Daily News. However, Municipal Court Judge Damian Murray gave Polizzi one day of community service, whilst also fining her $500.
Polizzi was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and creating a public nuisance whilst on a beach in New Jersey in July, but the 22-year-old denied all charges and played down the incident during an interview with MTV News, saying, "I don't know why people take it so seriously. I had a couple cocktails, and they just put me in a drunk tank to sober me up", her lawyer confirmed during the trial that Polizzi was intoxicated at the time.
However, despite facing a potential 30-day jail sentence, the reality star - who rose to prominence on the show 'Jersey Shore' - was given a more lenient punishment. Before the trial began, Polizzi spoke about her fears of going to prison, saying, "I'm too pretty to be in jail. I'm a good person. I'm not a criminal and I will never go back there", and after learning of her fate, she said, "I would definitely like to apologize to the Seaside Heights cops".
