Singer Pete Doherty has been handed a 12-month driving ban and fined 500 pounds ($825) after admitting he allowed his manager to use his car without insurance.
A lawyer entered a guilty plea on Doherty’s behalf during a hearing before a magistrate in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
In February, Doherty’s manager Andrew Boyd was given a 12-month jail term after a court heard he ran into a pedestrian delivering local newsletters and then sped off in the car.
Boyd, 42, admitted to a string of motoring offences including dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and driving without a licence or insurance during a hearing at Ipswich Crown Court on February 24.
The pedestrian suffered “catastrophic” brain injuries and was left in a coma, the court heard.
Today’s ruling is the latest setback for Doherty, 30, who once dated supermodel Kate Moss.
In January, he was fined after being caught with heroin in his pocket at a December court hearing for a case related to careless driving.
