He was ordered to attend a three-month alcohol program, pay DUI-related fines of more than $1,000, and attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim panel. He also may have the third count (possession of a controlled substance without a prescription) dismissed if he successfully completes a court drug program for first-time offenders.
Police say on Dec. 13, 2009, Hewlett drove home from a friend's house while intoxicated. At approximately 1:45 a.m., he lost control of his vehicle in Villa Park, drove up over the curb and across the grass and crashed into a planter in the front yard of a home. The residence is the home of Orange County Supervisor Bill Campbell.
Prosecutors say Hewlett was sentenced to the mandatory-minimum term for the driving-under-the-influence conviction.
