Hudson Valley Resident Jeanine Pirro Settles 119 MPH Speeding Ticket

After several months, Fox News host and former Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro has pleaded guilty to a speeding charge against her.

New York State Police troopers stopped Pirro driving 119 miles per hour on Nov. 19 last year in the Town of Nichols, which is in upstate Tioga County near Owego and her hometown Elmira.

When she was stopped by troopers, Pirro, who lives in Harrison, was driving in a 65 mph zone. According to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles, Pirro faced up to 11 points on her license for driving more than 40 mph over the speed limit, though that was reduced as part of her plea.

Pirro has pleaded guilty to driving 95 mph in a 65 mph zone. She must take a defensive driving course and pay nearly $400 in fines.

“I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old mom and didn’t realize how fast I was driving," Pirro said in a statement released by Fox after she was busted. "I believe in the rule of law and I will pay the consequences.”

Pirro is currently the host of “Justice With Judge Jeanine” on Fox News. She previously hosted the show “Judge Jeanine Pirro” on the CW, which was canceled six years ago. Pirro was the Westchester District Attorney from 1993 until 2005.
