The musician accused of being Philip Seymour Hoffman's drug dealer will avoid jail time.

In a plea deal with the Manhattan District Attorney, Robert Vineberg pleaded guilty to drug possession charges and will do community service and spend five years on probation. He could have faced up to 25-years in prison if convicted of the more serious charge of selling heroin to the late actor.

The Fairport native died of an overdose last February.
