After pleading guilty to his second driving under the influence (DUI) charge, Vince Neil, the singer of the rock band Motley Crue, will serve two weeks in jail plus two weeks of house arrest, according to news.yahoo.com.

Neil plead guilty to the misdeamenor DUI charge, stemming from an incident on June 27, 2010. His sentence will commence on February 15th, 2011, in Las Vegas. vince.neil.jpgNeil’s first DUI conviction was In 1984, when he plead guilty to driving under the influence and manslaughter after crashing in Redondo Beach, California, killing his passenger. For that DUI, Neil served twenty days in jail and paid $2.5 million in restitution to the victims.

The defense lawyer on the case commented that Neil faced six months in jail for this second DUI in Nevada. However, if Neil picked up the second misdemeanor DUI in California and that second conviction was within ten years of a first conviction in any state, he would have been exposed to one year in the county jail (California Vehicle Code Section 23540).
