NICHOLS, N.Y. (AP) — Fox News personality and former New York prosecutor Jeanine Pirro has pleaded guilty to driving 95 mph in a 65 mph zone.
Authorities previously said that a state trooper clocked Pirro’s Cadillac going 119 mph on Route 17 in Nichols, New York, on Nov. 19.

Pirro said in November that she’d been driving for hours to visit her ailing mother and didn’t realize how fast she was going.
Pirro was a Westchester County judge before serving as district attorney from 1994 to 2005.
