Former teen idol Leif Garrett has received a 90-day jail sentence and three years' probation after deciding to evade a drug-treatment program.
Leif was given credit for the time he had already served behind bars since being taken into custody March 30. The decision by the Superior Court commissioner was reportedly based on Leif failing several drug tests while staying in a live-in drug diversion program.
Attorney for Leif, Andrew Flier, said his client decided to abandon the program, which required frequent tests and daily counseling, because it was too strict.
Leif pleaded guilty to attempted possession of cocaine-based narcotics last year. He was placed in a less rigid, outpatient rehab program. Earlier this year, he checked into the live-in program after he failed a drug test and acknowledged he needed more help.
