Gasp: Pete Doherty Jailed After Drug Conviction

by at . Comments

You gotta be kidding, right? That was our reaction to learning that Pete Doherty was jailed for cocaine possession. Who would have ever guessed!

The British singer, who's certainly no stranger to drug abuse or jail, just earned a six-month sentence after pleading guilty to cocaine possession.

The charge stemmed from his arrest in March of last year after the Babyshambles frontman was suspected of providing drugs to Robyn Whitehead.

Robyn, a 27-year-old heiress-turned-filmmaker, was working on a documentary about Doherty when she was found dead of a suspected overdose.

He was also living with Amy Winehouse, who somehow survived.

Doherty, who was reportedly working on a comeback album with his old band The Libertines, was forced to cancel a scheduled concert in Scotland.

Hopefully he takes the time behind bars to reflect on life and get clean before anyone else dies, although given his track record, we're skeptical.

His songs should reflect moral preaching if he's to help the society cleanse of Drug abuse but his example to the public capsized the moral code. His entertainment are nothing!

Correction: He was not charged with supplying drugs to Ms. Whitehead. The judge also stated there was no connection between the charge and her death.
