Palm Springs Police Department
For Gary Dourdan, two out of three ain't bad. Of course, it's not really all that good, either...
The recently killed-off CSI player pleaded guilty to two of his three counts of felony drug possession in Indio, Calif., this morning, stemming from his early morning bust in Palm Springs last month.
The actor copped to one count each of cocaine and Ecstasy possession during today's arraignment; a third charge of heroin possession was dismissed.
Although he could have faced up to three years and eight months behind bars, in exchange for his plea Dourdan will not serve any time but instead has until Nov. 20, 2009, to complete a series of drug-education courses as part of the court's diversion program.
"As a result of today's proceedings, Gary has been given diversion," his attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said outside the courthouse. "He very much regrets what happened, and he's very embarrassed by what occurred, but he's looking forward to moving on and getting back to work.
