Cassidy takes plea deal on drink-drive charge

Seventies heart-throb David Cassidy has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge of driving while intoxicated in upstate New York.

Cassidy was charged last summer in the town of Schodack, near Albany.

He pleaded guilty on Wednesday in exchange for a tentative sentence of a conditional discharge that includes 50 hours of community service in Florida, his home state.

Sentencing was set for November 5 and depends on a pre-sentence report.

In March, a judge in Los Angeles sentenced Cassidy to three months in rehab and five years of probation in a drunken-driving case stemming from a January arrest for an illegal turn.

Cassidy's role on TV's The Partridge Family launched a singing career. He spends time in New York during the summer at Saratoga Race Course, 40 miles north of Schodack.
