Los Angeles, California – June 1, 2007. Shemar Moore decided to travel 65 mph on Santa Monica Boulevard in the early hours of June 1, 2007. During the traffic stop police suspected Shemar of being impaired and made an arrest. Shemar provided a breath test at a police station and was booked.
At his first court appearance, Shemar’s attorney entered a plea of No Contest. This is quite unusual because there are significant mandatory penalties with a DUI conviction. Usually an attorney would like to conduct an in-depth investigation and review the State’s evidence. This typically cannot be accomplished at a first court appearance.
Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer sentenced Shemar to pay a fine, perform 80 hours of community service or 80 hours of alcohol education. Shemar will be on DUI probation for three years. Judge Sauer has been busy with celebrities lately. He presided over the recent Paris Hilton jail saga.
