Former "CSI" actor Gary Dourdan will not go to jail for allegedly breaking his ex-girlfriend's nose during a domestic violence incident back in 2011 ... but he WILL have to stay the hell away from the victim.

We broke the story ... Dourdan was arrested in November, 2011 following a fight at Dourdan's home in Venice, CA.

Now, we've learned Gary struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to enter a no contest plea ... and in exchange will not serve any jail time.

However, Dourdan has been placed on 5 years formal probation, has been ordered to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and has been ordered to stay away from the victim for 5 years. 

Dourdan -- who has a history of drug problems -- was also ordered to undergo drug counseling.

They don't want to put a 200 lb unemployed former "actor" and drug addict in jail for breaking a girls nose. He's a bad influence on the jail population.

Douchebag!!! He's bad enough to break a female's nose, then he needs to go to jail. He can fight all he wants there. I'm sick of these freakin women beaters, he can take Chris Brown with him.

I would like to see him get himself right and get back to work because he really is a good actor but given that he still isn't sober and he broke the terms of his pre-trial restraining order almost immediately, I am doubtful he will make it through the 5 years without another arrest or few. Too bad..
