Jaime Pressly has been sentenced to three years of informal probation after pleading no contest to drunken driving.

Santa Monica Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar says Pressly’s attorney entered the plea Thursday for the former star of “My Name is Earl.”

Pressly was also ordered to attend a six-month alcohol education class. Skehar says the Department of Motor Vehicles is also requiring an ignition locking device be installed on her car.

Pressly was arrested Jan. 5 after police say she was stopped for a traffic violation and charged with driving while having a blood alcohol content of more than .20. The legal limit is .08.

Her attorney, Richard Hutton, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
