Drug Treatment Order Revoked 6 months early!
British rocker PETE DOHERTY has vowed to stay clean after a judge released him from a drug treatment order six months early on Wednesday (24Oct07). The once drug-addled Babyshambles frontman is no longer under court supervision, for the first time in 18 months, after Judge Jane MCIvor ruled she is confident Doherty will continue to follow the treatment plan he has been undergoing. Judge MCIvor told London's Thames Magistrates Court, "There is no need for statutory supervision or state funding... I wish you well." As he emerged from the hearing, Doherty, who recently completed a six-week stint in rehab, said, "It's just the beginning... My life has changed." However, Doherty is back in court on Friday (26Oct07) to answer charges dating back to an arrest in May (07), when he was caught allegedly driving while in possession of illegal drugs.
