Klein Sentenced To Time Already Served For Dui

AMERICAN PIE star CHRIS KLEIN has escaped extra jail time following his June (10) arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) after agreeing to enrol in an alcohol education programme.
The actor was taken into custody and charged with two misdemeanours after failing a sobriety test when his car was pulled over by cops on an L.A. freeway.
He spent four days behind bars before he was released on bail and he subsequently checked himself into Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab facility for two months of treatment in a bid to kick his alcohol issues.
Klein pleaded no contest to the DUI counts during a court hearing on Friday morning (03Sep10).
Judge David B. Gelfound noted the star's efforts to beat his drink problems and ruled he did not deserve the maximum sentence of a year behind bars, choosing instead to sentence him to time already served.
He was also placed on four years probation, ordered to undergo alcohol education classes and told he can only drive a car fitted with an alcohol interlocking device, reports TMZ.com.
Klein told the court, "I apologise for my wrongdoing and I really appreciate the court giving me the opportunity to prove how seriously I took all of this."
The star's run-in with the law in June (10) was his second DUI arrest in five years - he was busted on a similar charge in 2005.
