Judge to Joe Simpson

NO BOOZE FOR YOU!

Jessica Simpson's old man was just ordered by a judge to stay away from alcohol after his DUI arrest -- at least for now.

Joe Simpson was due in court for his arraignment today following his August 4th arrest -- but his lawyer Shawn Holley got the case continued to September.

In the meantime -- while Joe remains out on bail -- the judge ordered him not to drink ANY booze whatsoever ... a pretty unusual order considering he has no prior DUI arrests and hasn't been convicted.

TMZ broke the story ... Papa Joe was busted at a DUI checkpoint in Sherman Oaks, CA ... and blew .12 on the breathalyzer

The L.A. City Attorney subsequently charged Joe with two misdemeanor counts of DUI.

If convicted on both counts, Joe could face up to a year in jail -- but as a first-time offender, it's HIGHLY UNLIKELY he'll end up behind bars. He'll most likely end up with a fine and probation.

But the man of God needs his Jesus Juice. How can you deny him that?
And to deal with both his loser daughters, he really needs the harder juice!

It's not unusual at all. I had the same thing, nothing prior - not even a parking ticket! I had to submit to random alcohol tests for 1 yr + probation and classes. It sucked but kept it off my record.

Poor Joe. I'm sure since Jessica has a child and a baby daddy it's hard for him to get his quality time in with her and her "suckers." He is probably lonely.

He should be ashamed of himself at his age.
What a role model.

Would be an extreme order in any other case but this. That came straight from God's mouth to Joe's ear. Why should a judge have to tell a pastor not to get wasted?
