Doherty To Face Drug Review
Troubled British rocker Pete Doherty is expected back in court today (13JUL06) for a review of his drug-testing and treatment order. The Babyshambles singer was sentenced in April (06) to two years of supervision and 18 months of drug rehabilitation. The sentencing came after the 27-year-old pled guilty of charges involving the possession of heroin, cocaine and cannabis. Earlier this year (FEB06), Doherty received a separate year-long community order when he was convicted of more counts of drug possession. At a previous review in Thames Magistrates' Court, east London, lawyers for the singer claimed he was progressing "very well" at a clinic in Portugal.
