LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Pleads ‘Not Guilty’ to All Charges in Palm Beach Case!

Another day, another new Luann story…

Yesterday we reported that Lu was planning on moving forward with her ‘Cabaret’ act (for original story click here) and now the former Countess is making headlines again.

It was reported that Luann has pleaded ‘not guilty’ to her recent charges of battery/public intoxication. Not only is this shocking but she has apparently pleaded ‘not guilty’ to all fives charges in her Palm Beach felony case. Her charges include:

“battery on a law enforcement officer, two counts for threatening, resisting an officer with violence and disorderly intoxication.”

I’m no legal guru so I’m wondering why she decided to plead ‘not guilty’ but it looks like she is being advised by the best. TMZ is reporting that Lu has hired Tiger Woods’ attorney Doug Duncan to represent her. In documents obtained by Radar Online, her Duncan states:

“The defendant hereby waives arraignment, enters a plea of not guilty, and demands trial with jury.”

Once again, not a legal expert, but I’m shocked they are going to trial with jury.

After her embarrassing arrest, Luann announced she would be entering a treatment center for alcohol and released a formal apology. It was also reported that her ex husband wanted her to drop the ‘de Lesseps’ name as she was embarrassing the prestigious family. I’m sure her mugshot didn’t help either:

I’m sure we will keep hearing more to this story so stay tuned to AllAboutTRH for updates
