Doherty Sentenced Today

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty is in court today after pleading guilty to possessing crack, cannabis and heroin. The sentence given to him was a community order with 2 years’ supervision, an 18th month rehabilitation programme and a six month driving ban, meaning he avoided jail time, which had been a possibility.

The singer was already on probation for drug offences and was accused of possessing drugs twice, once in December and once in January and he is set to have a separate hearing next month regarding a review of his community service, for another drugs offence.

When will he ever learn?
