SCHODACK, N.Y. - A former child star arrested for DWI in the Capital Region was expected to accept a plea deal Wednesday, but the Rensselaer County District Attorney's Office said that particular deal has been adjourned.
David Cassidy's lawyer Lucas Mihuta was going to enter a plea deal in Schodack Town Court Wednesday night on the star's behalf. Mihuta did not say what the terms of the deal would be.
But by Wednesday afternoon, the district attorney's office confirmed that the deal had been adjourned.
Cassidy was in Saratoga Springs to visit the Saratoga Race Course in August 2013 when he was pulled over for DWI in Schodack. For his Wednesday plea deal, the DA’s office was under the impression Cassidy was out of state and could not make it to court.
However, a picture tweeted by NYRA showed Cassidy judging a bocce ball contest at the race course.
Mihuta said the plea deal was pushed back because of legal issues, and Cassidy is allowed to travel. He said Cassidy’s visit to Saratoga has nothing to do with the adjournment, but former Albany County District Attorney Arnold Proskin said it matters to the court.
“They were giving him a break it seems,” he said. “Obviously reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, and then he turns around and says, ‘Well, I won’t be there but don’t worry I’m not going to be around.’ He’s not telling the truth, and the system just doesn’t survive with something like that.”
Mihuta said the new court date is set for September 3.
