JOHN SCHNEIDER REQUESTS JAIL TIME: Dukes of Hazzard alum John Schneider is asking the court to restore his jail sentence. A court sent him to Los Angeles County Jail in June for three days after failing to pay more than $150,000 in alimony payments to Elvira "Elly" Schneider. He was released the same day due to overcrowding and given a suspended sentence if he complied with an order to pay up. Schneider would prefer to do his time, he wrote in a letter to the court obtained by People. He wrote that he is "leveraged to the max" with various loans while trying to do "what I believe is ‘right’ throughout this whole process." He added that he wants to "accept the punishment" in lieu of payment. The pair split in 2014 after 21 years of marriage.
