9 Soap Opera Stars Who Have Broken The Law

Published on November 3, 2015. Updated April 3, 2017

Soap opera stars are just like other stars – they have money and status and some of them have some really big problems! One problem that some of these soap opera stars have? Obeying the law. We have a list of 9 soap stars who have broken the law and paid (in most cases) a pretty small price.

9. Freddie Smith

Former Days of Our Lives star Freddie Smith seriously injured his longtime girlfriend Alyssa Tabit back in October 2014 when he crashed his car after leaving a wedding reception. According to prosecutors, both Freddie and Alyssa were intoxicated, with his blood alcohol results being over the legal limit. He pleaded guilty to felony vehicular assault and misdemeanor driving under the influence and was sentenced to two-years probation, had his driver’s license suspended for a year and was ordered to pay $1400 in fines.

8. Crystal Hunt

Crystal Harris – who starred on Guiding Light and One Life to Live – found herself in serious legal trouble in 2013 when she smashed a pint glass in another women’s face during a brawl in a West Hollywood bar. The unnamed victim suffered numerous cuts to her face and required medical attention. Crystal was arrested and charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, but she pled no contest to one count of felony assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury. She was sentenced to three years of probation and 45 days of work for the California Department of Transportation.

7. John Stamos

This past June, former General Hospital star John Stamos was booked for DUI when he was spotted driving erratically around Beverly Hills. He was reportedly so out of it that police sent him to Cedars Sinai for a medical evaluation. Four months later, he was formally charged with DUI and is currently facing misdemeanor count and a possible six months in jail.

6. Aiden Turner

All My Children star Aiden Turner was charged in November 2013 with four counts of domestic violence for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend with a remote control to which he pleaded not guilty. In February 2014, his lawyer struck a plea bargain whereby all charges were dropped and Aiden instead pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace. Part of the plea deal meant that he would need to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and, after a year, his plea will be reduced to an infraction.

2. Dylan Patton

Dylan Patton – former actor on Days of Our Lives – was arrested and charged with a felony count of possession of cocaine after he was caught selling the drug out of his family’s home to an undercover cop. The criminal complaint alleged that the crime took place within 1,000 feet of an elementary school. Even though he was facing up to nine years in a state prison, his lawyer was able to strike a deal, so Dylan was only given three years probation for pleading no contest to selling cocaine out of his family home.
