There will be no jail time for Linda O’Leary, the wife of reality TV star and businessman, Kevin O’Leary, who was charged for her role in a fatal boat crash this summer on Lake Joe, according to Canada’s prosecution authority.  She faces a maximum fine of $10,000.

The prosecution initially warned she could face a fine of  $1 million and 18 months in prison.

After re-examining the legislation, the rules for a commercial vehicle are not applicable in this case, and the prosecution services’ position was not accurate as O’Leary was driving a small pleasure craft.
