Kiefer Sutherland Sentenced to 48 Days in Jail

Posted on October 11, 2007 by

Kiefer Sutherland pleaded guilty on Tuesday after he was arrested for driving under the influence.

As part of his plea deal, Sutherland will serve 30 days for this DUI, his fourth, and 18 days for violating probation on his 2004 DUI arrest.

“I’m very disappointed in myself for the poor judgment I exhibited recently,” Sutherland said in a statement, “and I’m deeply sorry for the disappointment and distress this has caused my family, friends and co-workers at ’24’ and at 20th Century Fox.”

Sutherland will start his service on December 21, while the show is on hiatus. He was also ordered to enroll in an 18-month alcohol education program and attend weekly alcohol therapy classes for six months.
