Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, facing a possible jail term for slapping a police officer, insisted she's "100 percent innocent" but was ready to accept her sentence.

"I have no idea what will happen, but I am a strong lady," the Hungarian-born actress said in a telephone interview Monday night.Municipal Judge Charles Rubin was to announce the sentence today. A jury on Sept. 29 convicted Gabor of battery on a police officer, driving without a valid driver's license and having an open container of alcohol in her car. She was acquitted of failing to obey an officer.

The maximum possible sentence for the misdemeanor conviction was 18 months in prison and a $3,500 fine.

District Attorney Ira Reiner urged a 30-day jail sentence, a fine of more than $3,000 plus $14,000 to compensate the Beverly Hills Police Department for its costs. But Deputy District Attorney Elden Fox had dismissed the idea of a jail term after her conviction, saying she was too old to serve time.
