Freddie Smith, who stars on Days of Our Lives as Sonny Kiriakis, has has been sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty for driving drunk.
The drunken crash occurred last October in Ohio, which left his girlfriend seriously injured.
Freddie Smith, 26, from Los Angeles, lost control of his vehicle last October in Ashtabula County in northeast Ohio.
He pleaded guilty in December to felony vehicular assault and misdemeanor driving under the influence.
At his sentencing, the mother of his now-fiance Alyssa Tabit begged the judge not to send Smith to prison for the crash.
Smith must pay nearly $1,400 in fines, attend a driver’s intervention program, and speak at every Ashtabula County high school about the dangers of drinking and driving.
Alyssa Tabit, 27, his girlfriend and actress from North Hollywood was in critical condition following the accident and is still recovering.
Alyssa’s recovery is going well and that she only has a few weeks left of physical therapy.
Both Freddie and Alyssa were intoxicated, according to prosecutors, with Smith’s blood alcohol results being over the legal limit.
His Mazda 6 crossed the center line during the early hours of the morning and traveled to the left side of Route 84 before hitting a culvert.
The vehicle flipped over and trapped Tabit inside. Paramedics who arrived on the scene had to extract her and she was then flown to a Youngstown hospital in critical condition.
He is best known for his role as the openly gay character Sonny Kiriakis on the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives.
