David Cassidy admits driving charge

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

The 70s heartthrob was charged last summer in the town of Schodack, near Albany. The Times Union reports he pleaded guilty 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 drink-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.
