From the N.Y. Post’s Page Six:

Debby Ryan is ready to put her DUI behind her.

Two months after the Disney Channel starlet was arrested for drunk driving after she smashed her Audi into a Mercedes in Los Angeles, she’s pleaded no contest to a charge of reckless driving, reports TMZ.

The plea means that the “Jessie” star, 23, won’t have to spend any time in jail, but she will be on probation for three years, must complete a three-month DUI program and perform community service.

As a result of the plea, two misdemeanors against the actress, one for driving under the influence and another for driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or below, were dismissed.

While a no contest plea means Ryan does not admit guilt nor disputes the charges against her, in California it still results in a criminal conviction.

A representative for Ryan declined to comment.
