Troubled British rocker Pete Doherty has been fined GBP770 ($427) and disqualified from driving for four months after being convicted of possessing crack cocaine, heroin and cannabis.
The Babyshambles frontman, 27, was sentenced this morning (04DEC06) at Thames Magistrates Court in east London.
JUDGE JANE MCIVOR said she avoided sentencing Doherty to jail time because she didn't think the charges were serious enough.
The charges related to the singer's arrests on 20 and 29 April (06) and 7 August (06).
Despite seeking treatment for his drug addiction, Doherty was arrested last month (NOV06) on suspicion of possessing crack cocaine.
Doherty, on/off lover of supermodel Kate Moss, has been arrested over 12 times in the past two years (begs05).
