Kim Richards won't have to do time behind bars for her drunken assault of a police officer earlier this year, but she will have to do hard time in the community service realm.

A judge sentenced Kim to 30 days of community labor, meaning that she won't be able to do office work, but rather hard labor like graffiti and garbage removal, TMZ said.

In the plea bargain, Kim and her team had argued for a lighter punishment. Kim even claimed that a foot injury prevented her from doing strenuous work. The judge, however, dismissed her claim.

The sentence stems from an April arrest in which Kim had a drunken meltdown at the Beverly Hill Hotel in Los Angeles. After hiding out in a restroom, police said she kicked an officer. She's was charged with trespass, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and being drunk in public.

In her plea bargain, the former reality star was also placed on three years probation and was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the Beverly Hill Hotel. She was also ordered to attend an alcoholics anonymous class every week for the next year.

It's been a rough go for the former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star. In August she was arrested for shoplifting from Target and she was even reportedly homeless and living out of her car. Recently she came out and said that she was sober and feeling well. However, as is often the case with her, doubts are being cast on Kim's sobriety as she's been reportedly looking for prescription pills.

According to one report, Kim visited a smoke shop in Sherman Oaks, Calif., multiple times, looking for Xanax, which is not sold by the store. TMZ claims she attempted to get the same anxiety drug -- which she purportedly said was taking for her alleged foot injury -- at another store after failing to find it at the first.
