Bobby Brown Sentenced For DUI ChargeBy: Amanda Crum - February 27, 2013
Bobby Brown was sentenced yesterday to 55 days in jail after pleading no contest to driving under the influence and without a license in October.
The incident, which occurred late last year, wasn’t the first one Brown had been busted for; in fact, the suspended license was a result of another, previous DUI charge.
The musician has been in the headlines a few times since the death of his ex-wife, singer Whitney Houston, last February. As part of his sentencing, he’s also required to complete an alcohol program, pay hundreds of dollars in fines, and install a Breathalyzer device in his car which will prohibit him from turning the ignition if he blows past the limit. He will also be on probation for up to four years after he completes his jail time.
Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, has made headlines of her own lately; after reportedly getting engaged to her “brother”, Nick Gordon–who was raised by Whitney Houston but never officially adopted–and crashing her car in a strange, one-vehicle accident, she was criticized by her grandmother Cissy Houston for her behavior. Houston recently released a book about her daughter’s life which Bobbi-Kristina shunned publicly and denounced on Twitter.
