Sorry, Pete, but it's about freakin' time!
British rocker and habitual drug user/law-breaker Pete Doherty has been sentenced to 14 weeks in jail for violating his probations, his record label said. Pete's manager chimed in, telling Reuters that there were "numerous reasons" why the Babyshambles singer is being sent behind bars. "One of them was his late-coming at probation hearings."
At a court hearing in October, Kate Moss' ex admitted to a string of drug and driving offenses, and pleaded guilty to driving illegally while in possession of crack cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. After that he supposedly went to rehab, in lieu of jail, but was then allegedly caught on tape with heroin. He called the relapse a "stupid, stupid action for which I feel only shame."
I really think jail is the only way for this guy to get off the drugs but, even though he was sentenced to 14 weeks, sources say he will probably only serve a month or so. It's too bad -- they should send him to back to rehab for the other 10 weeks -- at least.
