Bobby Brown's getting put away.

Los Angeles City Attorney Spokesperson Frank Mateljan tells E! News that the singer was sentenced to 55 days in jail after pleading no contest today to driving under the influence and to driving on a suspended license (the license is suspended due to a prior conviction for driving under the influence.)

But that's not all.

Bobby Brown pleads not guilty to latest round of DUI charges

In addition to his jail time, Brown was placed on 48 months of summary probation, ordered to pay a $500 fine plus penalty assessment, complete the an 18-month alcohol program and comply with standard DUI conditions for his first charge.

On the second count, he was placed on 36 months of summary probation, ordered to pay a $300 fine plus penalty assessment, install an ignition interlock device--an alcohol Breathalyzer that prohibits the driver from starting the car if they blow above the limit.

Brown, who was not present in court Tuesday but represented by his attorney Tiffany Feder, will report to jail on March 20. As a condition of his surrender terms, he is to attend three A.A. classes a week.

Bobby Brown slapped with multiple DUI counts

In November, the "Every Little Step" singer pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court to the multiple DUI charges resulting from his drunken driving bust the month prior, E! News has learned.

Brown was pulled over around 1 a.m. on Oct. 24, 2012, for driving carelessly near the city of Tarzana, Calif., and officers discovered he was behind the wheel without his court-mandated dashboard Breathalyzer.
