Moviemaker Jon Peters in Violation of California DUI Parole

Jon PetersHollywood producer Jon Peters has been ordered to appear in court after reportedly not completing the terms of his California DUI parole. Peters was charged with drunk driving in Ventura County, California in February 2006 after being found asleep in his vehicle. He pleaded no contest and was ordered to complete an alcohol awareness program, regularly report to a probation officer and perform community service.

Peters was to work with the charity Homeboy Industries, which helps gang members rehabilitate after a prison sentence. While a proof of completion for 40 hours of community service was submitted to the court, when Homeboy Industries was contacted, they were only able to confirm 4 hours of involvement.

Peters has been ordered to appear in the Ventura County Court on January 16, 2009. The length of his probation for the 2006 CA DUI was three years, so he could be sent to prison under a parole violation.

Peters produced ‘Superman Returns’ and is the former lover of Barbra Streisand. A spokesperson for Peters was not available for comment.

If you or a friend have been charged with drunk driving in Ventura County you will need to hire a DUI lawyer in Southern California for representation on your DUI charge and DMV hearing.
