Lori Harvey is avoiding jail time in her hit-and-run case after pleading ‘no contest.’
While the Steve Harvey’s 23-year-old stepdaughter previously maintained her innocence over both misdemeanor offenses, she recently agreed to a plea deal.
After meeting with a judge earlier this week, TMZ reported she plead ‘no contest to one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest’ in exchange for two years probation. In January, the social media influencer was charged with one count of hit-and-run resulting in property damaged stemming from a collision in October and another count of resisting/delaying/obstructing a peace office. The L.A. County District Attorney’s Office filed the charges nearly three months after Lori allegedly walked away from the scene after she reportedly slammed her Mercedes G-Wagon into a parked car, causing her vehicle to flip on its side. Lori was reportedly behind the wheel of her $100,000 sport utility vehicle when she crashed into another car.
Witnesses on-scene reported that she was pulled from the car by the driver of the vehicle she hit.
Sources also claimed that Harvey was seen texting behind the wheel before crashing into the Prius.
After the incident, she reportedly tried to walk away ‘confused.’ Police were already there and arrested her for misdemeanor hit and run and delaying a police investigation.
