Singer/actress Courtney Love has been sentenced to 180 days in jail for violating her probation, but will serve her time in a live-in drug treatment center. Superior Court Judge Rand Rubin said she would be spared jail time because of the headway she made in rehabilitation.
"I'm very pleased with your progress. I think this is an excellent first step on the road to recovery," Rubin told Love after studying a report on her treatment. The 41-year-old singer will not be allowed to leave the clinic except for emergencies and would be subject to random drug tests. She has to later on back to court on November 18 and extended her probation, which stems from drug and assault convictions, until March 2007.
