Broussard pleads no contest to DUI

Actress Rebecca Broussard was sentenced to jail time and morgue duty Monday after pleading no contest to a drinking and driving felony charge.

Broussard, charged under the name Rebecca Kelly, was sentenced to five days in county jail and three years probation, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office.

Superior Court Judge Katherine Mader also ordered the 45-year-old to perform 30 days of state highway cleanup, participate in a hospital and morgue "Scared Straight" program and undergo an alcohol treatment program, Gibbons said.

A second DUI charge was dismissed.

Attempts to find a phone listing for Broussard were not successful.

The charges stemmed from an August collision near Los Angeles International Airport.

Broussard is the mother of Jack Nicholson's two teenage children.

Her movie credits include Nicholson titles "The Two Jakes" and "Mars Attacks!"
