Doherty Told: 'Rehab Or Jail'

LATEST: Singer PETE DOHERTY has been told he faces jail if he doesn't undergo rehab to tackle his addiction to drugs. The Babyshambles frontman pleaded guilty to possessing quantities of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine as well as two driving offences at a hearing in London on Tuesday (02Jul07) Judge Davinder Lachhar told Doherty - currently dating supermodel Kate Moss - he would only avoid jail on the condition he enter rehab before 7 August (07), when he is due to be sentenced. Judge Lachhar said "If you go to this place to have detox and take advantage of it then we will see what sentence is appropriate when you next come. But if you do not I can tell you now that you will go into custody." She hinted that she decided to give him another chance, after discovering he had been offered the chance to undergo rehab in Harrogate, northern England, later this month (Jul07). Speaking to reporters outside court, Doherty vowed to abide by the ruling, saying, "I have got no choice, have I ... It's rehab or jail. I was going to rehab anyway to be honest with you - this is just a little push."
