Sout Willis has turned down an offer to plead guilty after being arrested for allegedly drinking a beer in Union Square and handing the arresting officer a fake ID on Monday.
Scout was charged with two misdemeanors on Tuesday, but has refused the state’s offer of entering a guilty plea to avoid having a permanent criminal record.
Stacey Richman, lawyer to the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore revealed to People.com, “It would be outrageous to mar a person that’s clearly going places – clearly seeking to have a career… with a criminal record. The goal is clearly a non-criminal offer.”
The lawyer described Willis as “clearly intelligent” and “devoted to her studies” and calls the arrest “ridiculous”, before adding, “Seriously, you were underage once… who wasn’t looking to get into a bar?”
The 20-year-old student at Brown University is due back in Manhattan Criminal Court on July 31.
