LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bobby Brownhas surrendered to authorities and will begin a 55-day jail sentence for a driving under the influence conviction.

Brown’s attorney and a spokesman for the city attorney’s office say the R&B singer turned himself in at a Los Angeles courthouse Wednesday.

Brown pleaded no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended license in February. He will also be required to serve four years on informal probation and complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program after he is released.

The conviction is Brown’s second for DUI in less than a year. He avoided jail after pleading no contest to a March 2012 drunk driving case.

The 44-year-old New Edition singer is the ex-husband of deceased singer Whitney Houston.
