‘Days of Our Lives’ Star Freddie Smith Gets Two Years Probation in Car Crash Case

Actor had been charged with vehicular assault and driving under the influence

Soap opera star Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny Kiriakis on the NBC soap “Days of Our Lives,” has been sentenced to two years probation following a car crash in Ashtabula County, Ohio, in October, the Ashtabula County prosecutor’s office told TheWrap on Friday.

Smith, who pleaded guilty to the fourth degree felony of vehicular assault and a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, has also had his license suspended for a year.

The actor crashed his car after losing control while navigating a curve last October. Smith had a blood-alcohol level of .093. Ohio’s legal limit is .08.

In addition to the probation and license suspension, Smith must pay $1,350 in fines plus court costs, and speak at each high school in the county — approximately nine schools — about the effects of drinking and driving, the prosecutor’s office said.

Smith sustained minor injuries in the crash, while his girlfriend, actress Alyssa Tabit, was reportedly left in critical condition.
