Musician/poet Gil Scott-Heron was sentenced to one to three years in state prison Monday (Oct. 29) in a New York court, after he failed to appear at an Oct. 1 hearing regarding the mandatory drug rehabilitation required by his plea bargain on an earlier drug possession charge.

According to a district attorney spokesperson, the plea required Scott-Heron to enter a residential drug treatment program, but his failure to ott-Hedo so, coupled with his no-show at the Oct. 1 hearing, resulted in the jott-Heail term.

Scott-Heron is best known for such songs as "Johannesburg" and "The Bottle."
