Jacqueline Walters Danforth, Mug Shot, DUI

Collier County Sheriff's Office

UPDATE 6/21/2013: The Florida State Attorney formally filed charges on Thursday against Jacqueline Danforth for DUI.


Jacqueline Danforth, Barbara Walters' daughter, was arrested on May 21 in Naples, Fla., for a misdemeanor DUI offense.

A spokeswoman for the Florida State Attorney's office confirms to E! News Danforth, 44, waived her right to an arraignment on the day of her arrest, and on Wednesday, her attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.

That said, law enforcement has not completed their investigation or formally charged her in relation to last month's arrest. They will now start reviewing evidence related to the case. Danforth's next court date is set for July 9.

Danforth has struggled with substance abuse in the past according to her mother's book. Last month, she initially refused a breathalyzer test and then had a BAC of 0.218, well above Florida's legal limit. She was booked, then released a few ours later on $1,000 bail.

At the time, a rep for Walters had no comment.
