LOS ANGELES (CBS) After spending 30 days behind bars, reality television star Alexis Neiers looks forward to approaching life with a new outlook and giving back to teens who need help staying above the influence.
Has this "Pretty Wild" teen put her partying days behind her?
Only time will tell, but the 19-year-old told E! News, "I've had time to reflect on my life and the choices that led me to this experience, left alone in my cell 23 hours a day and having everything stripped away but the bare essentials. I did a lot of soul searching."
Neiers was released from the Century Regional Detention Facility Friday evening after serving 30 days of a 180-day sentencing for her role in the celebrity "bling ring" robberies. She pleaded no contest in May for burglarizing Orlando Bloom's home.
"I feel very humbled and see my life in a way that I have come to be very grateful for and I am also grateful to everyone who has helped and supported me through this," she told the celebrity news outlet.
According to E! News, Neiers is very much interested in helping others learn from her experience and wants to reach out to teen dealing the pressures of growing up. She wants to ensure that teens understand the "consequences of drinking and partying with people you assume and safe and with whom you consider friends."
Neiers may have been able to ditch her jumpsuit, but she still has three years of probation to get through, as well as $600,000 worth of restitution to pay.
Although the young starlet claims she was only involved in one break-in, the celebrity "bling ring" is accused of burglarizing the homes of Paris Hilton, Audrina Partridge, Rachel Bilson, Ashley Tisdale, and Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, as well as Alexis' jailmate Lindsay Lohan in 2008 and 2009, says E! News.
