Bobby Brown sentenced to prison
Feb 27, 2013, 7:01 GMT
Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in prison.
The 44-year-old singer pleaded no contest to driving under the influence (DUI) and to driving on a suspended licence, following his arrest last October, and will now spend almost two months behind bars.
The second charge relates to him being arrested last March after he failed a sobriety test.
For the DUI charge, Bobby was placed on 48 months of summary probation, ordered to pay a $500 fine plus penalty assessment, complete an 18-month alcohol programme and comply with standard DUI conditions.
On the second count, he was placed on 36 months of summary probation, ordered to pay a $300 fine plus penalty assessment and install an ignition interlock device - an alcohol breathalyser that prohibits the driver from starting the car if they are above the limit.
He will also have to go to three Alcoholic Anonymous sessions a week.
According to E! News, Bobby - who was not present in the Los Angeles courtroom yesterday (26.02.13) and was instead represented by his attorney Tiffany Feder - will report to jail on March 20.
Last year, as part of his release deal with his first DUI arrest, Bobby agreed to enter rehab.
However, in August he checked out early because he didn't think he needed anymore help.
