Almost-Jailbird Stephanie Pratt Gets 3 Years' Probation

Stephanie Pratt of MTV's The Hills has dodged a bullet. The 23-year-old reality star reached a plea deal Thursday with Los Angeles prosecutors in her DUI case and won't be serving jail time.

Pratt was arrested on Oct. 18, after attending Holly Montag's birthday party, and has since done a stint in rehab.

"Ms. Pratt voluntarily sought help from a doctor regarding substance issues but the doctor recommended that she didn't need rehab," said her lawyer, Jon Bryant Artz.

Pratt was sentenced to three years of informal probation, completion of a 12-week alcohol-education program, as well as three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week for eight weeks, and she will also pay a fine. DUI charges were dropped in exchange for a no contest plea to one count of misdemeanor "exhibition of speed."

After the arrest, Pratt called it "the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, it was the biggest blessing."
