The former 'American Idol' contestant will also be required to perform 45 days of community labor and has been ordered to stay away from the store under the terms of the deal.

Former "American Idol" favorite Chikezie Eze has been sentenced to three years probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor identity theft. Eze, a finalist on the seventh season of the hit TV talent show, was arrested and charged with felony I.D. theft in February after allegedly using a fake credit card to buy two bottles of cologne at Beverly Hills department store Neiman Marcus.

According to TMZ.com, the singer recently struck a deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest. He will also be required to perform 45 days of community labor and has been ordered to stay away from the store under the terms of the deal.

Chikezie Eze was eliminated from "American Idol" during the "Year They Were Born"-themed episode. He sang Luther Vandross' "If Only for One Night" but was sent home for receiving the lowest vote.
