R & B singer-songwriter Mark DeBarge (Debarge Family) will be spending six months in jail, this following an April drug arrest. Debarge can also look forward to community service also, this TMZ has learned.
When the story first broke he had been arrested with a female companion as they were in a Hollywood hotel room. What ha happened is that the woman’s parole officer had made a quick routine check and what was found, narcotics.
DeBarge had been charged with felony drug possession in addition to misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also charged with possession of a fake ID.
DeBarge tried to plead “no contest” earlier this month to all three counts but had been sentenced to one hundred and eighty days behind bars, thirty days of community service and three years formal probation.
At this time DeBarge is in custody, and will begin serving his sentence immediately.
