House speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband pleaded guilty on a DUI charge in California on Tuesday and was sentenced to five days in prison — though he likely will no longer be behind bars, authorities said.

Paul Pelosi, 82, pleaded guilty to drink driving that caused injuries, the Napa County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

He was sentenced to five days in prison and three years’ probation following a crash on May 28 in Napa County, north of San Francisco.

Pelosi was not in court on Tuesday and his lawyer pleaded guilty on his behalf.

The DUI offense did not require the defendant’s presence unless ordered by the judge and Pelosi “was not ordered by the court to appear in person,” the DA’s statement said.

Although he was sentenced to five days in prison, he has already served two days and received two more days of credit, assistant DA Paul Gero told NBC News in a statement.

That leaves another day to be served, and Napa County Supreme Court Judge Joseph Solga said it could be done through a court-approved work program, Gero said.

Also as part of his probation, Pelosi will “immediately enroll, pay and successfully complete a licensed 3-month DUI program,” according to the DA’s statement, and pay nearly $7,000 in fines.

He will also be restricted for a year from driving a car fitted with an ignition lock that would require him to provide a breath sample before the engine starts, prosecutors said.

A blood sample taken after the collision showed that Pelosi had a blood alcohol level of 0.082%, prosecutors said. had said. The legal limit in California is 0.08%.

The accident happened at 10:26 p.m. on that last Saturday in May as Pelosi crossed State Route 29 in unincorporated Oakville, and the 2021 Porsche he was driving was hit by a 2014 jeep, according to a California Highway Patrol crash report.

Amanda Bevins, Pelosi’s attorney, declined to comment on NBC News.
