Pete Doherty Sentenced for Drug Possession

A court may sentence rock star Pete Doherty to imprisonment for possessing drugs at his next appearance before it.

The vocalist for the band 'Babyshambles' pleaded guilty to possessing quantities of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine as well as two driving charges on July 3, when he appears at West London Magistrates' Court.

Judge Davinder Lachlar, who was presiding the hearing, deferred sentencing Doherty on the condition that he went into rehab to tackle his addiction, and did not commit any more offences before his case came up again.

She, however, made it very clear that Doherty might go into custody if he failed to take up a place he had been offered on a detox programme.

She also told the singer that she was considering all sentencing options, reports the Daily Express.

The six offences Doherty has been charged with are related to his arrest on May 5, when police officers in Kensington High Street, London, stopped his car.

The cops found crack cocaine and herbal cannabis in his clothes, and drugs, including heroin and ketamine, were revealed when the singer was strip searched at a police station.
