Despite rehab stay, Kim Richards could still go to prison for 2+ years

Kim Richards Prison

Last month, Real Housewives of Beverly HillsKim Richards was arrested in the Beverly Hills Hotel for the misdemeanors of trespassing, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and being drunk in public. Very quickly after that, she sat down with Dr. Phil and confessed everything was her fault — but initially refused to go the rehab.

Days later, after consulting with her family, Kim decided “on her own” to seek treatment for her substance abuse issues. At the time, some sources suggested the decision was also driven by an ultimatum from Bravo and/or advice from lawyers. Unfortunately for Kim, TMZ reports the L.A. County District Attorney didn’t buy the “Hail Mary” and formally charged Kim with public intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a cop.

In the worst case, Kim could be sentenced to 2 and a half years in prison. But, she also risks losing her spot on the Bravo reality show — as TMZ says “producers have her on the chopping block and the prospect of jail won’t help her case.”
