Abby Wambach pleaded guilty to her April 2nd DUI charge and agreed to attend a diversion program.
13 Apr 2016 - 12:09 PM  UPDATED 13 Apr 2016 - 12:10 PM

The retired 35-year-old entered her guilty plea at the Multnomah County Circuit Court where the judge ordered her to complete a drug and alcohol assessment and treatment; install a car disabling device; and abstain from alcohol. 

Wambach's charge could be dismissed in 12 months if she meets these conditions. 

Still as a statue, Wambach's only movement or speech in court came when she expressed she understood the agreement, her guilty plea and that she didn't want to take the case to trial.

Her lawyer, Ben Eder, told Steven Todd that a breathalyzer determined his client's blood alcohol content was .13 percent. The legal limit in Oregon is .08 percent.

Wambach and Eder did not stop for questions after the proceedings.
