According to E! News, Tuesday, Sierra was sentenced by Tampa Circuit judge Daniel Perry to a year-long in-house stay at a California rehab center, followed by three years’ probation. This, as a result of her Dec. 1st arrest for misdemeanor intoxication, and resisting an officer without violence.
Sierra has been detained since the arrest, due to the fact that it violated probation on felony charges last April for throwing a glass at a bar patron and for possession of cocaine. She will remain in jail until her transfer to California.
Sierra’s treatment will take place at the Pasadena Recovery Center, the same rehab where she took part in VH1′s reality show, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. This time around, Sierra’s recovery (paid in full by the Center, by the way), will include psychiatric care, medical care, and 24-hour supervision. Dr. Drew will be a participant in her recovery.
Let’s just hope it takes this time, as the pregnant “fallen Idol” is out of chances. If caught violating probation again, she could be singing the jailhouse blues for good.
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew airs Thursday, Jan. 10th, 10PM ET, on VH1.
American Idol premieres Jan. 15 on FOX.
