LOS ANGELES — A judge has sentenced 1970s teen heartthrob David Cassidy to three months in rehab and five years of probation in a drunken driving case.
Cassidy’s attorney, Steven Graff Levine, entered an open plea to a Los Angeles judge today, admitting that he was driving under the influence when he was arrested in January after making an illegal turn.
Levine says Cassidy has been in rehab and will remain for longer than his sentence requires. He says Cassidy is committed to his sobriety and wants to break the cycle that got him arrested for drunken driving twice in less than six months. A DUI case in New York was reduced from a felony to misdemeanor earlier this month.
Cassidy appeared on TV’s “The Partridge Family.”
