The Libertines man appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court in his hometown London today (May 20) to hear his sentence, reports the Press Association. The verdict came after a police investigation into the death of his friend, filmmaker Robin Whitehead in 2009.
The singer recently wrote a blog in which he claimed he had not supplied Whitehead with drugs, despite her living with him. He also tried to distance himself further from the 2006 death of Mark Blanco in the blog.
He had been due to play a solo gig at the Glasgow Barrowlands venue tonight.
