David Cassidy

Pleads Guilty

David Cassidy copped a plea in his felony drunk driving case in NY, and got the charge reduced to misdemeanor DWI.

Cassidy was in court Wednesday to enter a guilty plea. Under the terms of the deal he has to complete 50 hours of community service and have an ignition interlock installed on his car. He's already completed an alcohol treatment program, but in November the judge will decide if he needs more ... according to the D.A.

Cassidy was arrested last year after he was stopped by cops in Schodack, NY, and tests showed his blood alcohol level was 0.10 ... way over the legal limit of .08. 

"The Partridge Family" star pled no contest to a DUI charge in L.A. back in March -- and has a prior DUI conviction in Florida too.

So they're placing an "ignition interlock" on his car, meaning he is still permitted to drive? That's crazy. He's a REPEAT OFFENDER! First time offense should be a ONE YEAR revocation of license to MAYBE teach these idiots that there are consequences. And if they do it again, then it's jail time and PERMANENT revocation of license because at that point, it's clear they either have no control and will continue driving drunk, or just have no regard for other people's lives or their own. When will this horrible offense ever be taken seriously?

This is very sad. He's going the same route as his father did. Jack Cassidy was a terrible drunk and it's so sad that David has inherited his father's problem with alcohol. I hope he gets it together and gets healthy and sober.

A true rocker. A legend in his own right. He wrote a song for rock group legend Asia. He should tour with Bay City Rollers, Leif Garret and call it 'better lock up your mama tour "
