Keyshia Cole won’t be going to jail after blessing a woman in then boyfriend Birdman’s condo with the fade revealed she was unknowingly on probation. The R&B singer’s lawyer got the 10-year-old bench warrant that threatened to have her jammed up dismissed.
Kesyhia’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, was in Santa Clarita court Monday morning, arguing that a 10-year-old bench warrant should not be enforced.
It’s a bizarre story … back in 2002 Keyshia got a DUI. She was placed on probation and was required to attend an alcohol ed course. The court records do not show proof of completion so the judge issued a bench warrant.
But Holley told the judge Keyshia completed the program and her former lawyer just screwed up by failing to inform the court. Holley explained the alcohol ed program — which no longer has the old records — must have notified the DMV, because Keyshia has gotten 2 drivers licenses since then.
Holley persuaded the judge so the warrant was recalled and probation was terminated — yes, Keyshia was unwittingly on probation for the DUI for more than a dozen years.
Now Cole is free to continue her social media shenanigans.
