Growing Pains Star Gets Probation

Former GROWING PAINS star TRACEY GOLD MARSHALL has been placed on three years' probation after pleading guilty to a second felony drink-driving charge.

The 35-year-old American actress pleaded guilty in January (05) to felony drunken driving, following a rollover crash that injured her husband and two of their three children.

On Monday (21MAR05), a Superior Court judge decided to reduce the charge to a misdemeanour, but Deputy District Attorney JEFF GORRELL objected and said an earlier plea bargain was off and he wouldn't drop the child-endangerment charges against Marshall.

To avoid those charges, she pleaded guilty to the second felony drink-driving charge.

Judge BRUCE CLARK then placed Marshall on three years' probation, ordered her to complete 30 days of work release supervised by the jail and 240 hours of community service.

Marshall was behind the wheel of a sports utility vehicle on 3 September (04), when it went off a highway in Moorpark, California, and rolled down an embankment.

Marshall and her four-month-old son weren't hurt, but her husband, ROBY MARSHALL, and the couple's five and seven-year-old sons were injured.
