A singer-songwriter known for his contributions to the 1980's R&B
group "New Edition" received a 55-day jail sentence for drunk driving,
Atlanta news sources report. The suspected (BB) is a resident of Johns Creek, Atlanta but his arrest
took place several months ago in Los Angeles, California. The 55-day period
of incarceration will be accompanied by a four-year probation sentence.
According to a spokesman for the city attorney, BB was sentenced after
he was convicted for DUI and driving on a suspended driver's license.
BB did not contest the charges. After jail, the singer-songwriter will
complete an 18-month program for alcohol treatment.
Understanding Out-of-State DUIs
Out-of-state DUIs can be extremely complicated. If a driver lives in State A and is arrested
for drunk driving in State B, he/she may have to deal with a series of
legal complications that wouldn't exist if the arrested took place
in State A. For example: Imagine that you live in L.A. and are visiting
relatives in Atlanta, Georgia. If you are arrested for drunk driving,
you may have to deal with legal proceedings in Atlanta – not your
home state. This may include unnecessary travel expenses and other legal problems.
What to do if you're arrested for drunk driving in Atlanta: After an arrested, contact a local DUI attorney immediately. You might
