Babyshambles/Libertines principal Pete Doherty pleaded guilty today (Jan. 20) to possession of heroin, crack cocaine, morphine and marijuana. Doherty, 26, admitted the offenses during a hearing at Thames Magistrates' Court in London. He was freed on bail until sentencing on Feb. 8.

Police said the charges stemmed from Doherty's arrest in east London on Dec. 4, one of a string of drug busts for the artist and on/off boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss.

Doherty also was arrested on Nov. 30 and charged with possession of cocaine and heroin. He pleaded guilty last week and was released on bail.

Most recently, he was stopped by police last Saturday while driving through east London and again arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs. He was released on bail and ordered to return to a police station for questioning on Feb. 2.
