Former "Hannah Montana" star Mitchel Musso has struck a deal in his DUI case ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... 20-year-old Musso was busted back in October after an early morning traffic stop in Burbank, CA.

Now, TMZ has learned Musso has pled no contest to one count of having a blood alcohol level over .08 ... and in exchange, will be sentenced to 36 months informal probation and ordered to pay a fine and complete an alcohol education class.

Musso released a statement ... saying, "I appreciate the court allowing me to resolve my case in the manner it did today. In becoming an adult, I have learned first hand that stepping up and taking responsibility is the best way to move forward."

He adds, "I am especially thankful to my family and fans for their unwavering support and encouragement. I am glad to now put this in the past."

Am I the only one that is getting friggen sick and tired of these "deals" the California Celebrity Courts cut with celebrity and others who can afford to hire professional deal makers [aka attorneys]. Meanwhile the poor are being fvcked to prove to the public that the court is being "tough on crime" BUT the poor wouldn't be getting as fvcked if they'd vote get that burrito out of office and demand equity in sentencing. So, since they don't want to get off the lazy butts for vote, screw 'em, as they are being.

Ridiculous - they should be 10x tougher on underage DUI's as they are for adults.
Hollywood is so messed up. Anyone connected with "celebrity" in any way can escape pretty much anything.

Sounds like the cops didn't have much of a case. They have not been "cutting" deals with "guilty" people for the last couple of years when DUI is involved. They dropped one charge completely and negotiated around the other. Maybe he got targeted because of his celebrity status and when it came to down to the actual facts...It wasn't a good enough case to prosecute?

If you are not white stay out of Burbank. There are more cops in Burbank than any other town in LA and they are complete *******s. Figures they let a fellow white boy off with a lighter sentence. Hispanic or black you will get pulled over and harassed for simply driving through Burbank after dark.

Tons of people drink and drive, underage or of age. They just press their luck until someday they caught or curve their behavior before something serious occurs. Millions go to bars clubs and choose to drive. Just sit outside a bar or club parking lot.
