Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in jail for his second DUI conviction in a year.

The 44-year-old singer received the sentence Tuesday after his lawyer entered a plea of no contest on his behalf to charges that Brown was under the influence and driving on a suspended license when he was arrested in October 2012.

He was ordered to report to jail beginning March 20 and was also placed on four years of informal probation and will be required to attend Alcoholics Anonymous sessions each week.

Brown also pleaded no contest last year to another charge of driving under the influence in connection with an arrest last April.
