Reese Witherspoon's Arrest: What The Legal Cards Have In Store For Her And Hubby Jim!

It's been one helluva weekend for Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth!

Early Friday morning, the married couple were both arrested in Atlanta — he was under suspicion of a DUI and she exhibited disorderly conduct in the form of a tantrum and the oh-so enjoyable pull of the celebrity card.

Monday morning, attorney Steve Weiner represented them in Atlanta (neither needed to attend), but he did not enter a plea on the couple's behalf. Reese's hearing has now been rescheduled for May 22, and Jim's next one is set for May 23.

But though only their attorney need be present at Monday's hearing, practicing Atlanta DUI attorney Raymond Guidice explains what their future road of legal woes could look like, appearances or not!

For Reese, the heaviest hand she's gonna be dealt is a measly $1,000 fine and up to 60 days in custody (unless it's under state ordinance, in which case she faces up to a year).

As for Jimbo, he could pay $1,000 too, but he also faces 40 hours of community service, required defensive driving classes, a license suspension, and up to a YEAR in jail!!

Of course, these are the maximum penalties. Guidice doesn't sound like he's too scared for the famous twosome as most people walk out of court with much less.

And seeing as how Reese has already issued an apology, we won't be surprised if her signature smile and charm help wiggle her way out of this one with as little damage as possible.

    "What the legal cards have in store" ????? Nothing, she is a celebrity. Our American "justice" system at work again. I'm guessing they'll make the cop apologize for disturbing her.

    OH man, I hate "most' cops.. power hungry mongers. Most likely she did not need to be cuffed and arrested, Mr. Big tough cop with his gun –

    THe bigger issue for Reese is repairing her good girl image. Maybe she will make like Sandra Bullock, divorce her husband, play the unknowing victim, and adopt a kid to make everyone go 'awwww'.

    Re: bigdawg – Well to be fair, they could have killed someone drunk driving. I think they deserved what they got because there never should be a message that lightens the seriousness of driving under the influence. Especially as parents because they are supposed to be role models to their children, and driving drunk and then acting entitled about it is not okay.

    Believe me, they're already paying the price.

    People get dui's all the time and don't see jail time.. It's usually one day of holding and community service and hefty fines…
