Kim Richards Could Face Jail Time

Kim Richards could be facing jail-time if she doesn’t complete 450 hours of community labor by September, 7th, 2017.

Kim’s attorney appeared in court on behalf of her client Friday for a probation modification hearing. She stood before Commissioner Jane Godfrey who told her if the community labor hours weren’t completed at Midnight Mission by the specified date, Richards could receive jail time. She could, however, avoid a sentence based on good cause, meaning she wouldn’t have all the hours completed but she’d be almost done or proving she’s making an effort to finish them.

At the next hearing, which will take place on September 7th, Kim must show a “written progress report” from Midnight Mission outlining the hours she has completed by that date. Depending on the hours she has completed, Richards will either spend time in jail or the court will set a new completion date, E! News is reporting.

Kim was originally only supposed to do 30 days of community labor, but Friday’s hearing was held to modify the sentence, which resulted in a new ruling of 450 hours.

“Kim is up to date on all her requirements with the court and her probation was reinstated,” her lawyer told E!.

This sentence comes from her October 2015 arrest for her Target shoplifting after she plead no contest to one count of petty theft. She was originally charged for stealing upwards of $600 worth of items.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
