Pete Doherty Jailed for Six Months Over Drugs Charges
Pete Doherty has been jailed for six months after pleading guilty to cocaine possession.
The Babyshambles frontman appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court in London on Friday morning, May 20, and pleaded guilty alongside best friend Peter Wolfe. In the past, Doherty has twice been jailed for admitting similar drug offences. He was due to play a sold-out show in Glasgow on Friday night.
The Independent previously reported that the 32-year-old singer was arrested by police investigating the death of heiress Robyn Whitehead, who died from a suspected overdose after spending 10 days making a documentary about him in January 2010.
Wolfe pleaded guilty to two counts of cocaine possession and one count of supplying cocaine to Miss Whitehead.
