Sutherland Pleads No Contest

Kiefer Sutherland has pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence (DUI). The 24 star was charged after police witnessed him making an illegal U-turn in Los Angeles last month. A breath test allegedly found him to have twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system. Sutherland, whose attorney appeared in court on his behalf on Tuesday, also stands accused of violating the terms of his probation relating to a previous DUI conviction in December 2004.
