Kiefer Sutherland to Do Jail Time on DUI Charge

Quite a twist here for Jack Bauer.

Kiefer Sutherland pleaded no contest Tuesday in his drunken driving case and will begin serving a 48-day jail sentence while his Fox TV drama "24" begins its winter production break in December.

Should have given him 24 days and made it somewhat poetic.

The show's star agreed to serve 30 days for driving with a blood- alcohol level above the legal limit of .08 percent, as well as 18 days for violating his probation for a 2004 drunken driving case, according to court records.

Agreed? I didn't know you had a say in your sentence. How come so many people choose to do 3 to 5 years?

The actor was not in the courtroom and his attorney, Blair Berk, entered the plea agreement. A second misdemeanor charge, driving under the influence, was dropped. The charges stemmed from a traffic stop in Los Angeles last month.

How could we expect Mr. Sutherland to show up at court? He's busy saving the world and only as 24 hours to do it.
