Courtney Ames was sentenced to three years' probation and 60 days of community service last December. Ames, now 22, declined to be interviewed by The Times, saying she wants to "avoid the spotlight." According to her lawyer, Robert Schwartz, she is currently a student at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, where she is taking classes in psychology, speech and child development. During the fall 2012 term, she received straight As in her four classes, Schwartz said.
