Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih to be sentenced in DUI case
Former Miss USA Rima Fakih scheduled for sentencing in Michigan drunken driving case
By The Associated Press

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) ' Rima Fakih, the first Arab-American to be crowned Miss USA, is scheduled to be sentenced in a Michigan drunken driving case.

The 26-year-old former beauty queen faces a maximum penalty of 93 days in jail at Wednesday's hearing in Highland Park, an enclave of Detroit. Her lawyer has predicted that she will be sentenced to probation.

Fakih pleaded no contest last month to driving while visibly impaired. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.



Fakih has said she wasn't drinking on the night of her arrest in December, but two police breath tests put her blood alcohol content at more than twice the legal limit.

The former Miss Michigan was crowned Miss USA in 2010.
