Pete Doherty, formerly of The Libertines and currently heading Babyshambles, has again avoided jail time for drug-related offenses according to NME.com.

Doherty was in court this morning for sentencing after pleading guilty last month to seven charges.

Doherty will be on probation and must continue in a court-monitored rehabilitation program and will not be permitted to drive for six months.

Doherty is again due in court May 12 after failing to make a scheduled appearance last week.

Doherty’s scrapes with the law have become more regular than his appearance on stage. He is probably best known in America for his on-again, off-again relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. His problems with drugs have been well chronicled throughout his career, beginning with the Libertines and continuing on to the present day. In between the string of arrests and stints in rehab, Doherty has had to cancel as many (if not more) gigs than he has appeared at.

His debut album with current band Babyshambles, Down in Albion, was finally released in the US within the last month. It has been available in the UK since late 2005.

About Josh Hathaway

  • If it wasn’t for the drug charges and his relationship with Kate Moss, I doubt many people would even know who Pete Doherty was. He needs to clean up his act and focus on music or just end it all so his band can get famous off of his demise and expiration.

  • i have known people who were involved with heroin. it completely removes the rational part of a person’s brain.

  • Mindboggling, really. I know that addiction is a powerful force but it gets hard to imagine getting pinched twice in the same day or getting pinched hours after getting a light sentence.

    too late! he’s just been arrested again…now, get updating! (check sky news for the latest)

  • If I had started one more paragraph with Doherty I would have won a set of steak knives.
