Cee-Lo Green Pleads No Contest to Putting Ecstasy In a Woman's Drink

Cee-Lo Green avoided a potential jail sentence today by pleading no contest to charges that he slipped a female companion MDMA on a date last year, allegedly leading her to wake up next to him with no memory of what happened the night before.

The former The Voice coach was charged last year when a 33-year-old woman told police that after he put an ecstasy pill in her drink, she woke up next to him in bed the next morning, naked and unsure of the night's events.

Green's lawyer told the Los Angeles Times that the two had "consensual relations." No sex charges were filed, prosecutors said, due to a lack of evidence.

In exchange for avoiding up to four years in jail for furnishing a controlled substance, Green was reportedly sentenced to three years' formal probation, 360 hours of community service and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
