Guilty! Hard verdict for George Clooney's sister-in-law Tala Alamuddin Le Tallec. Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney's sister has to go to jail for three weeks.
Tala Alamuddin Le Tallec, 47, sister to Hollywood star George Clooney, 58, and sister of Amal Clooney, 41, was sentenced to a three-week prison sentence in Singapore on Monday (October 14) for various traffic crimes. She was also fined $ 6,400 (around $ 5,800). The reason: drunk driving. But that was not the only crime the human rights lawyer's sister had committed, as reported by "straitstimes.com."
Tala Alamuddin drove home on the night of May 13 this year after a restaurant visit a friend with her husband's BMW X5. At 2.30 clock she got into a police check. Police officer Sergeant Alvin Lee noted that Tala Alamuddin was having trouble finding the handbrake. As she reached for her purse in the back seat to get her driver's license, she accidentally hit the accelerator.
Since the policeman noticed a strong smell of alcohol and Tala Alamuddin could not immediately answer the question of where it came from, an alcohol test followed. The result: The 47-year-old had exceeded the threshold of 0.3 per thousand almost three times. In court, Tala Alamuddin later admitted to having drunk two glasses of wine and a glass of champagne. But that was not all.
