Leyritz Fined, But No Jail Time

Jim Leyritz has to be thanking God, his lucky stars, or whatever else he may believe in this evening.

The former Yankees catcher was fined $500 and put on one year's probation for his misdimeanor DUI conviction from 2007. Leyritz was acquitted of DUI manslaughter last month after a drunken crash killed Freida Ann Veitch. Prosecutors were unable to convince the jury that Leyritz ran a red light.

Leyritz settled a civil suit with the victim's family last May.
