Joe Simpson Could Face Jail Time After DUI Arrest

joe simpson could face jail time following his dui arrest

We told you at the beginning of the month that Joe Simpson, dad to both Ashlee and Jessica Simpson, had been arrested upon suspicion of DUI after being stopped at a routine DUI checkpoint in Sherman Oaks.  Looks like the L.A. City Attorney has gone ahead and filed 2 misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence as  a result of that stop.

According to TMZ if Joe is convicted on both the counts he could be looking at jail time.  Both charges carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail as well as up to 36 months probation not to mention a $1000 fine.  I wish people would realize how severe drinking and driving is!  Joe will go before the judge later this month.
