Los Angeles - Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in a Los Angeles jail and four years of probation for a drunken driving case.

City attorney's spokesperson Frank Mateljan says Brown was sentenced on Tuesday after pleading no contest to charges he was under the influence and driving on a suspended licence when he was arrested in October.

Brown was on probation for another driving under the influence case at the time.

The 44-year-old New Edition singer was ordered to report to jail on 20 March. He also was placed on four years of informal probation and will be required to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment programme.

Brown's attorney Tiffany Feder had no immediate comment on the sentence.

The sentence was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
