    Peter Doherty, the former frontman of UK rock band The Libertines, has been sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to cocaine possession, reports the Associated Press. The 32-year-old musician, who has a long history of legal problems, was arrested in January following the death of Robin Whitehead at party in London. Doherty was suspected of supplying drugs to Whitehead.

    Since his first arrest in 2003, Doherty has largely been able to avoid jail time, with 14 weeks being his longest stint prior to today’s sentencing.
