The Grammy-winning singer also entered a special plea in which he maintained his innocence in the case and that prevents his no contest plea from being used against him in civil court. The drug case could be used against Green in criminal court if he faces another drug offense.
Superior Court Judge Mark Young sentenced the 39-year-old singer to three years of formal probation and 45 days of community service. Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, will be allowed to travel for work and permitted to see a private physician for drug and alcohol counseling, the judge said.
“I loved watching the Making a Difference stories about remarkable people and organizations making a profound difference in our country and our world,” Clinton said in a statement posted on her Facebook page. “I am grateful NBC gave me the opportunity to continue this important legacy.”
Former Playboy model Brandi Brandt was sentenced to up to six years in prison Friday for being part of a drug smuggling ring that brought cocaine to Australia.
Brandt, who was once married to Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, pleaded guilty in April to a charge of conspiring to import drugs. Prosecutors said she was part of a drug syndicate that hid packages of cocaine on Qantas and United Airlines passenger planes that flew from California to Sydney in 2007.
Employees of an airline catering company allegedly collected the packages after the planes landed.
The California-born Brandt, 45, was accused of conspiring with others to import the cocaine between July and December 2007.
SO, SUE ME
A federal appeals court says an Iowa woman who claims rock singer Sammy Hagar fathered her baby 25 years ago may sue him for libel, invasion of privacy and breach of contract.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says the woman, identified only as Jane Doe, may sue the former Van Halen frontman for allegations in his 2011 memoir.
The lawsuit had been dismissed last year by a federal judge, but the appeals court says the woman has established facts a jury should decide.
The woman, a former Playboy bunny, claims she had Hagar’s baby. She says the infant died shortly after birth in 1989.
Hagar denies he was the father and questions whether she had a baby and accuses her of extortion.
Myanmar’s first international beauty queen has absconded with her $100,000 crown after being stripped of her title for being rude and dishonest, organizers said Friday.
“She thinks as long as she keeps this crown she’s the winner,” said David Kim, director of media for the South Korea-based pageant. “She’s not.”
Organizers said Noe had “lied” and proved to be untrustworthy but provided few details.
