Katie Price was sentenced and she left court together with Carl Woods.

Katie Price has said that she feels “extremely sorry” for what happened after she was sentenced to a DUI crash.

On her way to see a friend, the TV host flipped her car in Partridge Green, West Sussex.

Price received a 16 week suspended sentence from a judge Wednesday, and was told that Price is lucky to be out of prison.

Price posted on Instagram: “It was a very difficult time. I am incredibly sorry for what I did – it hurt nobody.”

She said, “I am aware of the harm my actions have caused to not only another family but also to mine.”

“I am now spending my time improving my mental health – it is an invisible illness that can strike anytime.”

Sussex Police will be considering appealing the Price sentence following the Crawley Magistrates’ Court case.

Above and beyond the law

On 29 September, she admitted to drink-driving and driving while disqualified.

Amanda Kelly, District Judge, sentenced Price at her hearing. Price had been previously banned from driving for five occasions and had an “unacceptable driving record”

Price told her that “you appear to believe you are above law” and was given a two-year driving ban. Price also had to complete 100 hours of work unpaid.

Court heard that no other vehicles were involved with the B2135 crash, which occurred just before 06.20 BST.

Price was brought to the hospital where she admitted that she had taken drugs.

According to the court, a drug test resulted with a positive read for cocaine. A roadside breath test also showed a positive report for alcohol.

Price posted on Instagram that “The triggers which cause my anxiety or behaviour are something I am trying to understand and come to terms.

It will take me a while to get through this, and it’s something that I’m going to continue working on throughout my entire life. The good news is that it’s something I can do with my family, so we can move on to a better chapter.
