The estranged Libertines star becomes a free man again after having his sentence reduced...

Estranged Libertines star PETE DOHERTY has been released from prison today (October 8).

As previously reported on NME.COM, Doherty pleaded guilty to burglary after breaking into ex-bandmate Carl Barat’s flat on July 25, while Libertines were touring in Japan.

Horseferry Road Magistrates’ Court heard Doherty admit to stealing an antique guitar, video recorder, a laptop, mouth organ and a CD player.

Last week at Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court in London, the star’s sentence was reduced to two months from six.

This morning Pete became a free man.
