David Cassidy

Ordered Into Rehab After DUI Plea

3/24/2014 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

03-24-14-david-cassidy-tmzDavid Cassidy's ass just got spanked by the legal system after pleading no contest to DUI -- the judge ordered him to enroll in a 90-day live-in rehab facility for alcohol abuse.

TMZ broke the story ... Cassidy was busted for DUI in L.A. back in January -- his third DUI arrest since 2010.

In addition to rehab, Cassidy was also sentenced to 60 months probation. He must also complete a 9-month alcohol program.

We were previously told Cassidy had enrolled in rehab last month. It's unclear if the judge will give him credit for his previous stint.

Cassidy had originally faced up to a year in jail -- so he should consider this a victory. Even if his wife still wants to divorce him.+

5:07 PM PT -- Cassidy's rep tells TMZ, the singer had already been enrolled in an inpatient rehab facility at the time of his sentencing today and the judge will be giving him credit for the 102 days he's served. We're told Cassidy will be transitioning into a monitored outpatient program (with a sober coach) early next month. The rep says, "David is very committed to his sobriety."

It's usually an 18-month DUI class for a repeat offence.

Rehab is a gift...not a punishment. Hopefully David sees that and gets his life back on track to be happy and healthy again.

Just My Opinion    


Believe me,
You really don't have to worry.
I only wanted to make $#!^ slap happy faces
And if you say,
"Hey, go away," your breath stinks, I will, but I think better still
I'd better stay around and not drive drunk.
Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face:
Do you think you love my money enough to get me out sooner? If so..
I think I love you.
I think I love you.
I think I love you.
I think I love you.
I think I love you.
I think I love you

I am glad he never caused a accident. Wish him the best with his sobriety. I feel sorry for John and Jane Doe who can't afford that luxury to help them beat their addiction.

He should be doing jail time. This is not his first offence. Another Hollyowood has-been skirting the law.

What used to be a decent guy has turned into a vile obnoxious man and a drunk. A guy who used to be nice to his "fans" has become a first class assh0le. Ain't no rehab for a-hole-ism.

From the looks of all the makeup he needs gay conversion therapy. Or Mormon conversion therapy.
