Court officials confirm ... Cassidy has agreed to enter a no contest plea during a hearing this afternoon.

We're told in exchange for the plea ... Cassidy will be sentenced to one year probation, his license will be suspended for 6 months and he will be required to complete 50 hours of community service.

Cassidy must also pay around $500 in fines, complete an alcohol education course -- and attend a DUI "victim impact panel" ... where people who have been affected by drunk drivers will tell their stories.

As TMZ reported, Cassidy failed a breathalyzer test on November 3 after state troopers saw David weaving off the road in his Mercedes around 8 PM.

I always liked this guy, but I hope he learns his lesson in spite of the light hand slap. Don't drink and drive. Just don't do it.

People who fail DUI's don't deserve to keep their license at all. So you're saying I can go drink and drive, possibly kill innocent lives and all I get is a slap and "don't do it again." This world is so messed up.

Hey Dave,
You and Marsha Brady were HOT!40 yrs. ago, BUT now you both have lost your looks due to the aging process, theirs not enough stem cells on this planet that could reverse your aged damaged faces.
It seems to me you, like the other baby boomer celebrities are now going what I refer to as the "BABY JANE SYNDROME" your living in the past, your no different than retarded clown with the clock dangling around his 55 yr. old neck flavor flav....All you HAS BEENS should board the Partridge school bus and drive it off the nearest cliff! P.S please pick up Danny Bonadouchebag before leaping!

That's not a "deal". That is what ANYONE would get for a 1st time dui in Florida. You don't go to jail for a first time dui in Florida. 6 month suspension, one year probation, driving school and fines. It has been that way for years.
