Where Is Hope Solo Now?

Hope Solo, a star for the United States of America in soccer, was found guilty of driving while intoxicated on Monday, four months after she was discovered unconscious behind the wheel of a car in a North Carolina Walmart. The former USWNT goalkeeper entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to 30 days in prison, which she will not have to serve because she already spent a month in treatment, and an additional 23 months suspended. Additionally, a $2,500 fine and $600 in lab fees were imposed on her.

The 40-year-old, who won Olympic gold in 2008 and 2012 as well as the 2015 World Cup, was taken into custody on March 31 after a bystander spotted her dozing off for more than an hour while driving a vehicle with the engine running. She was driving with her 2-year-old twins in the backseat. When a bystander phoned the police, the officer who arrived could smell alcohol on her.

She declined a breathalyzer test, but a blood test conducted under a warrant revealed she was three times the legal limit. Alcohol has become a toxic aspect of Ms. Solo’s life, she admitted in a message posted on Instagram. “I made a terrible error. It was undoubtedly the worst error of my life.
