Rick Springfield pleads no contest in DUI case
Singer Rick Springfield pleaded no contest to reckless driving and will serve probation to end a drunken driving case filed last year. The case developed after the singer was arrested for speeding in May 2011.The 62-year-old Australian musician’s attorney Philip Cohen entered the plea to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving Thursday in Malibu. The “Jessie’s Girl” singer initially faced drunken driving charges, but the new charge doesn’t include any allegation of alcohol impairment. District attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison says Springfield will be on informal probation for three years and is required to attend a three-month alcohol education program.
