Jake T. Austin

Cops Plea In DUI Case

EXCLUSIVE

1120-jake-t-austin-tmz
Victory ... ex-Disney star Jake T. Austin has escaped DUI charges stemming from his arrest last month ... but he's not completely off the hook.

Austin was popped for drunk driving in October just blocks from his devastating 4-car crash this week.

Austin was initially charged with two counts of DUI, but his lawyer, Jay Jaffe, got the two charges dismissed in exchange for a measly speeding charge ... to which Austin pled no contest.

Austin was subsequently sentenced to 24 months probation ... a pretty steep punishment for speeding, but at least he won't have a DUI on his record. Austin is also prohibited from driving with even a teensy-weensy amount of alcohol in his system. 

And get this ... the judge didn't utter a peep about the most recent accident.

One crash at a time ...

Such nonsense. These idiot brats need to be held accountable. He also broke another law, drinking when he's only 18.

Hey Harvey.....you seem to know something of the CA laws, please tell me how that idiot can skate on two charges of DUI and get the charge of "speeding"? And isn't he only 18? Where's the charge for underage drinking???

How hilarious would it be if the next time he drives drunk (tonight), he crashes into the judge's family car and they all die? Ha ha ha! Judicial leniency for all celebrities!!!! Put the "little people" in jail...

Jake is drinking to suppress homosexual panic. Harvey should intervene and adopt him. Talk about a paper route!

DUH - He is 18 years old. He can't do ANYTHING with ANY amount of alcohol in his system.

Disney has that affect on child stars. They start out great but then end up out of control.
