Jax Taylor Mugshot


Jax Taylor has been sentenced.

The Vanderpump Rules star (real name Jason Michael Cauchi), who was arrested in Honolulu in July for stealing a pair of sunglasses while on vacation, appeared in a Hawaii courtroom earlier today to find out his fate for his charge of second-degree theft.

Taylor accepted a plea deal which sentenced him to 364 days of probation, and if he stays out of trouble, his record concerning this case will be wiped clean after completing the time. The reality star was also fined $350 to the Sunglass Hut where he swiped the shades, $105 to the crime victim compensation fund, and $1,150 in fees and fines, according to local reports.

"I had too many drinks, too many Mai Tais," Taylor told the judge on Thursday. "I made a mistake, took full responsibility and I understand this is going to follow me the rest of my life due to the fact that I'm on television. So I just want to say I'm sorry and I apologize."

Taylor happened to be celebrating his birthday during the getaway over the summer with girlfriend Brittany Cartwright, as well as fellow Bravo cast mates Mike and Scheana Shay, newly engaged Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz as well as Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix.

Jax didn't comment on the whole ordeal at the time, but he did tell E! News in November that this season of the hit show would give us a glimpse into what really happened. "You'll see what happens. It's a mistake, everybody makes them, mine happens to be on TV," Taylor explained. "It was a screw-up, you'll see what happens. You know, I wasn't all there mentally."

Schwartz added, "It's interesting because earlier we were talking about social media, and not only do we get reprimanded by everyone that is close to us, but also, everybody online."

Speaking of online, Jax decided to head to Twitter after his court hearing to let fans know that he's heading back to Los Angeles, and probably won't go back to Honolulu for a while.
