Jessica Simpson's father Joe pled no contest on DUI charges this week.
Joe landed himself in trouble on Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles on Saturday August 4. The 54-year-old was pulled over by LAPD officers at around 10pm that night and authorities suspected that he was intoxicated.
TMZ reports that Joe's attorney Shawn Holley visited the court surreptitiously on Tuesday to enter to plea for his client, days before the scheduled date.
Joe apparently made a deal with the court.
He will not be put in jail and will instead be on probation for three years.
Joe must also pay an undisclosed fine and attend alcohol education classes.
Joe recently became a grandfather again after his daughter Jessica gave birth to daughter Maxwell earlier this year.
He is currently separating from his wife of 34 years Tina and is embroiled in a major sex scandal.
Many young homosexual men are claiming that they've engaged in romantic affairs with Jessica and her sister Ashlee Simpson's father.
