Bobby Brown gets 55-day jail term for DUI

Washington, Feb. 27 (ANI): Whitney Houston's former husband Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in a Los Angeles jail for a drunken driving case.

The 4-year-old singer has also been given four years of probation, CBS News reported.

City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said that Brown was sentenced on Tuesday after he pleaded no contest to charges that he was under the influence and driving on a suspended license when he was arrested in October.

Brown had been on probation for another DUI case at the time.

He has been ordered to report to jail on March 20. He will also be required to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program. (ANI)
