Bobby Brown: Singer sentenced to 55 days in jail for DUI
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bobby Brown was sentenced on Tuesday to 55 days in a Los Angeles jail and four years of probation in a drunken-driving case.
City attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said Mr. Brown was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to charges he was under the influence and driving on a suspended license when he was arrested in October.
Mr. Brown was on probation for another DUI case at the time.
The 44-year-old “New Edition” singer was ordered to report to jail March 20. He also was placed on four years’ informal probation and will be required to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program.
Mr. Brown’s attorney, Tiffany Feder, had no immediate comment on the sentence.
The sentence first was reported by celebrity website TMZ.
