It’s been a year since former General Hospital star Haley Pullos was arrested after a near-fatal car wreck.

Initially, Haley pleaded not guilty to two counts of DUI and one count of hit-and-run.

In court on Monday, she changed her plea to no contest for one count of DUI while the other count was dropped, as was the hit-and-run count, Daily Mail reports.

Haley was then given three months in the county jail, which she began serving immediately following her plea being entered.

The actress will remain in jail until July 29, when she will attend a sentencing hearing where she will be formally given five years of probation and 200 hours of community service, and her driver’s license will be suspended for a year.

There was also restitution ordered for the owner of the car Haley was accused of hitting on the California freeway. She will have to pay Courtney Wilder $8,620, and he is also suing her in civil court.

There was speculation that Haley Pullos would be back on set at General Hospital as Molly Lansing-Davis once she settled her DUI case.

It quickly became apparent the ABC soap was not interested in continuing to employ the actress, and she was eventually recast.

General Hospital had a hard time finding the right actress to fill the role, but eventually, Kristen Vaganos fit the bill and has been in the role for months.

Haley had been on the ABC soap since she was 11, forming bonds with her on-screen mom, Nancy Lee Grahn, and her on-screen sisters, Kelly Monaco and Lexi Ainsworth.

For the most part, Haley Pullos hasn’t been talked about publicly by her co-stars.

However, that changed when news of her plea change and jail time began to circulate.

Nancy Lee Grahn has played Haley’s TV mom for over a decade. She has known her since she was 11 and watched her grow up.

She wrote, “As Haley’s TV mom I can tell some truths about her as I’ve loved her since she was little girl. She made a HUGE mistake, knows it, owns it & has spent the last yr doing EVERYTHING imaginable to take responsibility 4 it. It’s not that I oppose jail. It’s that I oppose this jail.”

Haley will return to court on July 29 for her formal sentencing hearing. She will also have to deal with the civil suit against her.

General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC.

Best to her in her recovery- these consequences shall help her accept accountability as she has already exhibited by changing her plea. Alcoholism is a disease – hoping that she will not be asked for more than is fair in the civil lawsuit. Huge thanks to Nancy G for her wise and loving words. I hope one day to see the original Molly back on G.H.- and/or other endeavors of her choosing. 💕
