    Fox News personality and former New York prosecutor Jeanine Pirro has pleaded guilty to driving 95 mph in a 65 mph zone.

    Authorities previously said that a state trooper clocked Pirro's Cadillac going 119 mph on Route 17 in Nichols, New York, on Nov. 19.

    The Journal News says Pirro - who negotiated a plea deal with the Tioga County district attorney's office - has been fined $300 plus fees and has to take a defensive driving course.

    Pirro said in November that she'd been driving for hours to visit her ailing mother and didn't realize how fast she was going.

    Pirro was a Westchester County judge before serving as district attorney from 1994 to 2005.
