Tom Sizemore sentenced to jail

Tom Sizemore has been sentenced to 16 months in prison for violating the terms of his probation in connection with a drugs charge.

He "abused the privilege of probation and needs to be in a lockdown setting," ruled Judge Cynthia Rayvis at Los Angeles' Superior Court.

Sizemore, whose screen credits include Saving Private Ryan, will be sent to a facility with a noted drug programme.

He was arrested last month on suspicion of drugs possession, which he denies.
