Joe Simpson pleads 'no contest' in DUI case

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Joe Simpson has pleaded no contest in his August DUI arrest.

As we previously reported, Simpson was arrested on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, California. He was arrested for having a .08 blood alcohol level and remained in jail until the next afternoon.

E! News reports that Papa Joe was sentenced to 36 months probation and given a $390 fine plus penalties. He also has to complete an alcohol education class. According to the report, Joe was not in court, but his lawyer submitted the "no contest" plea on his behalf.

Along with his DUI, luck has run short on the father of Jessica and Ashlee as his wife of 34 years, Tina, filed for divorce back in October. Shortly after the divorce was filed, a series of reports surfaced insisting that Joe is gay. Male model Bryce Chandler Hill, 21, reportedly told several people that he and Joe had engaged in a sexual relationship. He has since denied the rumors.
