Village People Star Fails To Show Up To Court On Second Occasion

Former THE VILLAGE PEOPLE star VICTOR WILLIS faces more than three years in prison after failing to appear in court on Tuesday (24JAN06) to be sentenced on drugs and firearms charges.

Willis, who dressed as a policeman in the YMCA group, didn't turn up to the hearing in San Mateo Superior Court, California. He had previously pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine and a loaded gun after police searched his car in July 2005 and was free on $100,000 (GBP56,000) bail.

The 54-year-old's non-attendance is his second legal no show in three months. In October (05) he also failed to appear in court - his lawyer said he was "scheduled for surgery".

As a result of his poor attendance, Willis now faces over three years in jail.
