In addition to his license being revoked and community service, Cassidy must also pay approximately $500 in fines, complete an alcohol education course, and attend a DUI "victim impact panel" where people who have been affected by drunk drivers talk about their experiences, states TMZ.

Part of his community service should be added so that he has to honor all of the personal appearances and commitments he has bailed on in recent years.

I agree! I'd never heard of it before, but I think it's brilliant.
