Woods pleads guilty to reckless driving

Powered by National Club Golfer

Tiger Woods will serve 12 months' probation after pleading guilty to reckless driving.

Tiger Woods pleaded guilty at his hearing for reckless driving and agreed to enter a diversion program for first-time offenders.

It means the 14-time major champion will avoid a conviction. He accepted the conditions of the program, for which he is eligible as he has no previous criminal record.

The program involves 12 months of probation. Woods has already served 50 hours of community service.

During the sentencing, Judge Bosso-Pardo told Woods: “This particular plea agreement has no jail time.

“However, if you violate your probation in any significant way, I could revoke your probation and sentence you to jail for 90 days. Is that understood?”

Woods replied: “Yes.”

If Woods completes the program with no further convictions, his record will be wiped clean.
