      It seems like D’Angelo is too busy in the courtroom to be trying to record any new music. On Friday, the singer pleaded guilty to driving with a suspended license and driving under the influence from a 2005 car accident. He was rolling in a Hummer in Virginia when he was thrown from the vehicle. He suffered bruised ribs and contusions. But the law let him off kind of easy.

       The judge fined him $1,000, but suspended $500, then sentenced him to nine days in jail, but suspended it all, and revoked his license for 90 days on the suspended license charge. He was also fined $1,500, with $750 suspended and was sentenced to six months in jail, also suspended, and suspended his license for 12 months on the DUI charge.

       In April 2005, he was fined $250, given a 90-day suspended jail term and his driver’s license was suspended for one year on a DUI conviction. Just a week before his 2005 accident, D’Angelo was given a three-year suspended sentence on a cocaine charge stemming from a traffic stop.
