Bobby Brown turns himself in to begin sentence for DUI conviction

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Bobby Brown has surrendered to authorities and will begin a 55-day jail sentence for a driving under the influence conviction.

    Brown's attorney and a spokesman for the city attorney's office say the R&B singer turned himself in at a Los Angeles courthouse Wednesday.

    Brown pleaded no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended license in February. He will also be required to serve four years on informal probation and complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program after he is released.

    The conviction is Brown's second for DUI in less than a year. He avoided jail after pleading no contest to a March 2012 drunk driving case.

    The 44-year-old New Edition singer is the ex-husband of deceased singer Whitney Houston.
