98 Degrees Singer Jeff Timmons Sentenced for Reckless Driving

Jeff Timmons of '90s boy band 98 Degrees pleaded no contest to charges of reckless driving and refusing to sign a citation and was sentenced to a year of probation.

Lawyers for Timmons entered the no contest plea to the two misdemeanors Wednesday. The 33-year-old singer was ordered to undergo treatment for alcohol and substance abuse and must serve 50 hours of community service.

Timmons was pulled over April 23 in a white Mercedes for driving 60 mph in a 45-mph zone, according to a report. He was in town for a charity softball game.

He originally had been charged with driving under the influence, but that charge was dropped due to a lack of evidence, said assistant state attorney Michelle Perlman.

"Mr. Timmons refused all physical testing — breath or blood or urine," Perlman said.

Defense attorney Michael Donnelly said, "In light of the facts, we consider the negotiated plea of reckless driving to be a fair resolution in this case."
