Pete Doherty was handed a suspended four-month jail sentence Friday for a series of drug and driving offenses.
The 28-year-old rocker, whose drug use has frequently landed him in court, was fined $800 for driving without insurance and $154 for not having a valid inspection certificate for his car.
Appearing at West London Magistrates Court, Doherty was given a four-month sentence, suspended for two years. He was also placed under court supervision for 18 months and given a 12-month drug treatment order.
"You have made strides and I hope you will continue in doing so. I would hate to see you going backwards," district Judge Davinder Lachhar told Doherty, who was cheered by a gaggle of fans as he left the courthouse.
He was arrested in May and subsequently pleaded guilty to possession of crack cocaine, heroin, ketamine and cannabis, and a variety of driving offenses.
The singer was arrested again in August for allegedly breaching bail conditions by possessing drugs, but that charge was dropped because police failed to meet a deadline for bringing him to court.
Doherty, best known as the on-off boyfriend of Kate Moss, fronts a band called Babyshambles.
