Singer Cee Lo Green Avoids Jail, Pleads No Contest to Giving Woman Ecstasy

Singer Cee Lo Green avoided jail time Friday after pleading no contest to one felony count of furnishing Ecstasy to a woman while dining at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant, prosecutors said.

The 38-year-old former judge on NBC’s “The Voice,” whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Calloway, entered the plea on the day his preliminary hearing was scheduled to begin.

Green was sentenced to three years’ formal probation, 360 hours of community service and ordered to complete 52 Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

He’s due back in court in March for a progress report.
