Pete Doherty back in jail

Written by John Ritchie on May 23, 2011

Pete Doherty is back in jail after being given a six month jail term for pleading guilty to possession of cocaine. The Judge told Doherty he had an “appalling record” of committing offences, but Doherty showed no emotion as he was sentenced.

Doherty was arrested in January last year while police were investigating the death of heiress Robyn Whitehead, who was making a documentary about Doherty when she died of a suspected overdose.

Doherty was set to perfrom a sold-out concert in Glasgow on the weekend but the gig has been postponed.

Last week Doherty was cleared of any wrong doing over the death of a partygoer who fell from a balcony shortly after the pair had a row at a London party in December 2006.
