Kiefer Sutherland pleads guilty to drunk driving

Quote
LOS ANGELES (AFP) — "24" television series star Kiefer Sutherland pleaded guilty to drunk driving Tuesday in a Los Angeles court where prosecutors asked that he be jailed for 48 days.

Sutherland, 40, was arrested September 25 west of Los Angeles for driving with an alcohol-level three times above the legal limit,
court documents show.

The actor was on probation for another drunk driving violation in 2004, for which Los Angeles prosecutor Rocky Delgadillo asked the court he be sentenced to 18 days in jail, in addition to 30 days for the current charge.

If the judge adheres to Delgadillo's recommendations, Sutherland would have to serve the first 18-day sentence on December 21, and the other 30-day sentence on July 1, 2008.

Sutherland's presence was not required at Tuesday's hearing. His lawyer entered the guilty plea.

What an absolute scumbag of a human being.

That's "they tried to make me go," there, Oscar.

No one really cares that's why no ones discussed it.
I remember my dream now.

Yet you still cared enough to respond.  Hmmm. . .

He will... he will... aren't they splitting up his sentence to work around recording the show?  If they are, I'm glad for the show but at the same time think that's ridiculous, if they want to actually punish him and make him really accountable they shouldn't split up his time.

I'm a huge fan of him, but do think a consecutive sentence is how this should play out.

Leniency in regard to scheduling a short prison sentence around other obligations isn't entirely uncommon, even among non-celebrities.

Somebody should get time for letting that show continue.
