Ashlee and Jessica Simpson’s dad has pleaded no contest to a DUI and will serve three years probation.

According to court papers made available Friday, Joe Simpson entered the plea to one misdemeanor count, according to People. A second count was dismissed. He will also have to attend classes on alcohol abuse.

Simpson, 54, spent a night in the pokey last August after he was pulled over in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles around 10 p.m. He volunteered to do the Breathalyzer.
