President Bush's daughter Jenna, 19, was ordered to perform community service and take a six-hour alcohol awareness course after she pleaded no contest to underage drinking in an Austin, Texas, courtroom on Wednesday. She will also have to pay $51.25 in court costs. Bush appeared before Municipal Court Judge Elisabeth Earle to face a charge of minor in possession of alcohol, a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500 or community service. She'd been cited for drinking beer in a police sweep of Austin bars near the University of Texas, where she is a freshman. At the time, Jenna was described as being cooperative. (The legal drinking age is 21.) Bush's charge will be dismissed if she meets all of the requirements of Wednesday's sentencing by June 17, and the case can be expunged from her record if she is not arrested again before she turns 21.
