According to court documents obtained by XXL, the Miami-born rapper-singer pled no guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge as well as one count of DUI causing serious injury, a felony.
As a result, DaniLeigh will avoid prison time as she was sentenced to five years probation.

Those charges will be dismissed if Dani completes her five years of probation with any violations.
DaniLeigh’s Defense Attorney Issues a Statement
DaniLeigh’s defense attorney, Michael Catalano, spoke with XXL over the phone to provide some insight on the crash and the content of her character in his opinion.
“She [DaniLeigh] wasn’t really at fault in the accident and she didn’t know she somebody, but there was damage to the car,” Catalano tells XXL. “She wants to say, ‘I’m really sorry about this,’ but [the victim] has a lawyer and we never let people talk because it can be held against them. The truth of the matter is, the gentlemen who got hurt, was at fault in the accident. She’s very apologetic about it and feels horrible that somebody got hurt.”
