Ex-Libertine Pete Doherty To Serve 6-Month Jail Term





The world of The Libertines is a very strange one, as you are probably most aware. However, itís taken another strange turn. You may remember that co-founding member Pete Doherty had a falling out fellow band initiator Carl Barat on the eve of their European/US tour, which led to Pete's dismissal from the band. During the Libsí journey to the States, Mr. Doherty got a bit obliterated and decided to break into a flat in Central London, stealing money, electronics and a computer. Bottom line was that he got caught and that it was Baratís flat! The case went to court and the guilty verdict came down. However, with the verdict came a rather staunch sentence: six months in jail! No one involved with the case thought it would get to this point; they all expected a fine and Doherty to be sent to rehab, as he has admitted to being addicted to crack cocaine. Now, Pete will have to battle this addiction from behind bars, not exactly the best venue for coming clean. Hopefully in six monthsí time this episode will have a happy ending. Weíll keep you in the know.
