D'Angelo pleaded guilty in Virginia District Court on Wednesday to charges of marijuana possession and driving under the influence of alcohol, according to The Associated Press.
The R&B singer, whose real name is Michael Archer, was pulled over in a Richmond suburb in January on suspicion of drunk driving. Police searched the car during a traffic stop and found marijuana and .029 grams of cocaine.
D'Angelo, 31, was fined $250 and given a 90-day suspended jail term for the DUI conviction, and his driver's license was suspended for one year. This was not his first case of reckless driving (see [article id="1458765"]"D'Angelo Resists Arrest On Charges Of Assault, Aggressive Driving"[/article]).
The singer also waived a preliminary hearing regarding a third charge of cocaine possession, a felony. D'Angelo received a $50 fine and another 10-day suspended jail term for the marijuana charge, and his license was suspended for an additional six months.
Archer appealed the marijuana-possession and DUI convictions to the Chesterfield Circuit Court.
