Casper Smart won’t face jail time for speeding, but the backup dancer and beau of Jennifer Lopez isn’t getting completely off the hook.

Smart, 24, was sentenced in Los Angeles’s Van Nuys Superior Court to 12 months probation Tuesday and ordered to pay a $500 fine, L.A. City Attorney’s Office spokesperson Frank Mateljan tells PEOPLE.

Smart, whose sentencing stems from a 2010 incident, has a history of traffic violations, according to authorities.

“The speeding charge was a misdemeanor,” Mateljan says. “His attorney came in and advanced the case. He entered a plea of no contest.”
