Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says attorney Philip Cohen entered the plea for the "Jessie's Girl" singer during a hearing in the misdemeanor case Tuesday in Malibu. Springfield, 61, did not attend

The Australian-born musician was arrested on May 1 by a sheriff's deputy who stopped him for allegedly speeding in his 1963 Corvette on Pacific Coast Highway.

The sheriff's department said Springfield's blood alcohol content was 0.10 percent. That's over the 0.08 percent limit in which a person is presumed to be too drunk to drive.

Cohen did not immediately return a phone message from the AP.
