Nation IN BRIEF : FLORIDA : Plea Bargain Set for Pee-wee Herman

November 05, 1991|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Actor Paul Reubens' attorney said the "Pee-wee's Playhouse" star agreed to plead no contest to an indecent exposure charge stemming from his arrest in an adult movie theater in Sarasota, Fla. Under the deal, Reubens would be fined $50 plus court costs and be sentenced to perform 50 hours of community service. If convicted in a trial, Reubens could have faced 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. "It was an offer too good to refuse," attorney Ron Dresnick said. "Pee-wee wants to get the whole thing behind him and to avoid the personal trauma of a trial."
