Cee-Lo Green Gets Probation and Community Service After Pleading No Contest in Ecstasy Case


Cee-Lo


The former judge of 'The Voice' is ordered by judge to complete three years of probation and 360 hours of community service.

Cee-Lo Green pleaded no contest Friday, August 29 at Los Angeles County Superior Court to allegation that he drugged a woman with ecstasy. "I plead no contest where I maintain my innocence," said the former judge on "The Voice".

The 39-year-old musician whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway was slapped with felony drug charge stemming from a 2012 incident. He avoided jail time as Judge Mark Young sentenced him to three years of probation and 360 hours of community service. He was also ordered to avoid alcohol if his probation officer requests so.

Green was accused of slipping ecstasy in his female companion's drink during a dinner at a restaurant in downtown L.A. The woman said she later woke up in bed with Green in a hotel room naked and with no memory of how she got there.

The "F**k You" hitmaker insisted what happened between them that night was consensual. A sexual assault charge was initially filed along with the drug charge, but it was dismissed by prosecutors due to lack of sufficient evidence.
