John Michael Montgomery Enters Plea in DUI Case
John Michael Montgomery will not go to court for his DUI charges from earlier this year after reaching a plea agreement Tuesday (Aug. 22) in Lexington, Ky. The 41-year-old singer entered an Alford plea, a legal response which means he did not admit guilt but acknowledged there is enough evidence to convict him. Instead of a trial, Montgomery will pay $663.50 in fines and court costs and will enroll in an alcohol education program. After completing the course, his driver's license will be reinstated. As a result of the plea arrangement, the additional charges regarding drugs and weapons found in his car have been dropped. He had been charged with having a prescription that was not in an original container and possession of a controlled substance. Montgomery was arrested Feb. 16 after leaving a Lexington bar.
