Rick Springfield Pleads No Contest in DUI Case

ABC News(MALIBU, Calif.) -- "Jesse's Girl" singer and one-time General Hospital star Rick Springfield pleaded no contest Thursday in a DUI case stemming from a drunk-driving arrest in California in May of 2011.

TMZ.com reports Springfield himself wasn't present for the proceeding at the Malibu, Calif., courtroom, but his attorney pleaded on the star's behalf to a lesser offense, a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving, "with driving under the influence conditions."

As a condition of his plea, Springfield will avoid jail, but must attend an alcohol education program, and will be considered on informal probation for three years.
