Keyshia Cole won’t be serving jail time for a 2002 DUI case after a judge threw out the bench warrant Monday (April 6). Shawn Holley, Cole’s attorney, successfully argued that the star completed a court-ordered alcohol education program, TMZ reports.
Holley said in court today that the 33-year-old’s previous lawyer failed to forward proof of completion to the court. However, the former attorney had to have given documents to the DMV since Cole has been issued two driver’s licenses since the bust, Holley pointed out.
Despite the paperwork mix-up, Cole was subsequently placed on probation and faced 30 days behind bars.
The warrant issue arose after she was arrested on a suspected battery charge last September following an altercation with a woman at Birdman’s West Hollywood, Calif., condo.
