Warner, 48, of West Hollywood, entered a plea of no contest Wednesday to one misdemeanor count of alcohol-related reckless driving and immediately began serving her probation sentence.

Warner also was ordered to take a 12-hour drinking and driving program, which she is required to show proof of completion.

Also, Warner was given a Watson advisement, a formal document that she signed stating that if she drives under the influence and a person is killed, she could be charged with murder. The Watson advisement, a standard practice in DUI cases, is the result of a 1981 California Supreme Court case  declared if a person has one DUI conviction on their record and happens to be involved in a DUI accident where someone dies, they are subject to harsher penalties.
