Uh oh, could Jax Taylor be heading to jail? The ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star appeared in court in Hawaii Feb. 18 to face a judge on his second degree theft charges after he stole some sunglasses there in July 2015. Read on for what kind of sentence he’s staring down!
We hope those shades were worth a criminal record! Jax Taylor, 36, has struck a plea deal in a Hawaiian court following theft charges after he stole some sunglasses in summer 2015. He was celebrating his birthday and partying super hard at the time it happened, and now the Vanderpump Rules star has finally learned his fate in the case. Could he end up doing time for this? Keep reading for more details!
Jax accepted a prosecutor’s plea deal where he will be placed on 364 days of probation, and if he stays out of trouble, his record concerning this case will be wiped clean after completing the time. He was also fined $350 to the Sunglass Hut where he snatched the shades, $105 to the crime victim compensation fund, and $1,150 in fees and fines. So in other words, if he pays up AND stays totally out of trouble for the next year, he’ll be able to put this embarrassing incident behind him.
The reality star showed total contrition in front of the judge, telling him “I had too many drinks, too many Mai Tais. I made a mistake, took full responsibility and I understand this is going to follow me the rest of my life due to the fact that I’m on television. So I just want to say I’m sorry and I apologize.” Well done Jax. Get Vanderpump Rules Season Four by clicking here.
Jax was on vacation celebrating his birthday along with girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and other cast members when the incident went down. It’s going to be part of Jax’s plotline during this season of Vanderpump Rules, even though with his fairly light sentence, some of the drama may be for nothing.
