Drug treatment for Courtney Love
Judge: 'Further consequences' at September sentencing

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Courtney Love tearfully admitted using drugs in violation of her probation terms Friday. The rocker-actress was ordered into a 28-day drug treatment program by a judge who said he had wanted to put her in jail.

"I think that you need to hit rock bottom before you make a decision about what you're going to do in the future," Superior Court Judge Rand Rubin told the sobbing Love.

She was in court for allegedly being under the influence of a controlled substance, which wasn't identified.

Love's voice cracked as she said, "Yes, your honor," when asked by Rubin if she understood she was admitting to three probation violations. She is on probation in three separate cases.

The 41-year-old Love was told to enter a drug treatment facility by the end of the day. Her attorney, Howard Weitzman, wouldn't disclose the name of the facility or whether it was a lock-down program.

The judge ordered her back to court September 16 for sentencing on the probation violations.

"There will be sentencing and some further consequences at that time," Rubin said. "I think you either need a long-term drug program or a long term in County Jail."

Outside court, Weitzman said Love had had a relapse but will "deal with it."

"She's serious. She's sincere. And she's pretty tenacious about getting her life in order." Weitzman said. The lawyer explained Love had violated terms of probation in one case but that "if you violate in one you violate in all."

Love, the former lead singer for the band Hole and the widow of Kurt Cobain, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge on February 10. She was already on probation in two unrelated drug cases.

Earlier this month, the judge issued a bench warrant for Love's arrest, but he agreed to hold it pending Friday's hearing.

At a red carpet event this month, Love said: "I'm clean and sober for over a year and no one seems to care! They're like, 'Oh, her dramatic weight gain.' So, stop making fun of me!"

In July, a judge praised the singer for making progress in a court-ordered drug treatment program. The treatment is tied to a misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a controlled substance in 2003 when police alleged she tried to break into a former boyfriend's home.

I don't think the Dept of Children and Family Services is a good place for any child...Perhaps you should apply for a foster care certificate and see what is involved before you suggest yanking a kid from its home...Actually, until you have taken in and helped raise a foster child, and have a clue about what you are advocating, you should SSShhuussshhh... :wink:
what are you saying bee? that a house filled with drugs is the better environment for a child? :scratch:
didn't she already lose custody at least once before anyways? i thought she just got her back not too long ago. anyone know?
bee, i agree with everything you said. that is why i think frances bean should be removed from the home. she deserves to grow up in a normal household with love and kindness. courtney love is a repeat offender and should be treated as such. kudos to you for stepping up to the plate for these less fortunate kids. that is what they need. a stable home environment. you are a good guy. i think both hooters and i believe all children deserve that chance. we're kinda on the same side, aren't we?
i am acting by raising my children in a responsible manner and by making sure this is never an issue for my family. if everyone would just do that, there would be no need for services like those above. but again, i DO respect you for all that you are doing. the welfare of the child should always come first. i am an extremely compassionate person, and if ever i am in a position to help a child, and it is feasible for me, i would like to take the opportunity to do so. every child deserves a good life. i love all children...that's what being a mother means to me.
good question. i do indeed have a safety net. my sister and her husband would take our kids, as would i hers in the same instance. again, it would be irresponsible of me as a parent to not cover all my bases. you have made good points to me, as i hope i have done for you as well. you indeed have given me lots to think about. we both want what is best for our children, and all children for that matter. i will no longer bother you with this discussion. thank you for the educational and inspirational debate. all the best to you... :hug:
