Ex-Libertines Frontman Pete Doherty Out of Jail

Published: 2005-02-07
The self confessed heroin and crack addict, Pete Doherty has been spending most of his time in Pentonville prison in London UK. The former frontman of The Libertines and current lead for the band, Babyshambles, appeared in court on Friday charged with robbery and blackmail for allegedly taking documentary maker Max Carlish's credit card amongst other items.

Doherty (thankfully) has been ordered to start a drug rehabilitation course by the court after being bailed out of jail by Rough Trade Records/EMI, who own his recording rights. The record companies have also ensured that Doherty not leave his home between 10pm and 7am without their official security guard to make certain any further illegal incidents do not occur. Out of prison yes, but not jail as it seems.
