The Orange County district attorney’s office says Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor count of driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit.

Sambora’s attorney, Blair Berk, entered the plea in Orange County Superior Court as part of a deal just hours after prosecutors filed charges against Sambora. A count of driving under the influence was dropped.
The musician was not present at the hearing.
Sambora was sentenced to three years of informal probation, three months of first-offender alcohol awareness class and court fees. He cannot have any measurable amount of drugs or alcohol in his system while driving during the period of his probation.
