Back in August, Kim Richards was sentenced for kicking a cop who was attempting to arrest her for her drunk and disorderly conduct at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Today, Richards went before a judge again, this time to be sentenced for shoplifting from a Target store over the summer. Once again, lady luck (along with an expensive legal team) was in the troubled Housewife's corner.
Instead of jail time, Richards was sentenced to 300 hours of community service, 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and three years probation.
It's the exact same sentence she received for the cop-kicking incident.
It may sound like Kim is gonna be sitting through a lot AA meetings and spending the rest of her life picking up trash by the side of the freeway, but the judge decided to allow Kim to serve the sentence concurrently.
So yeah, in his weird, roundabout way, he basically let Kim off scot-free.
Of course, she's banned from Target for life, but if you've ever intended to go in there for a new toothbrush and walked out with two full shopping carts an hour later, you know that might not be such a bad thing.
Obviously, Kim got off incredibly easy, but at least it wasn't a total slap on the wrist.
After her first sentencing, Kim petitioned the court to allow her to do community service, instead of community labor, as she claimed that a knee injury made her unable to do the kind of crappy, menial work that she's been paying other people to do her whole life.
The judge wasn't buying it, so Kim will be doing hard labor sometime in the next few months. Keep your eyes peeled for a Housewife in an orange jumpsuit if you're driving along the 405.
