Rock News: Stone Temple Pilots lead singer going to jail?
Scott Weiland has a long history of trouble with the authorities due to heroin use. On Friday the latest chapter in this sad story was written when Weiland stated in California Superior Court that he had violated his probation by using heroin. The troubled singer was placed on probation after being convicted in 1998 for possession of heroin.  Weiland was ordered into custody until his sentencing hearing on Sept. 3. 

Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney stated that Weiland is likely to spend a year in jail. When Weiland last faced Superior Court Judge Larry P. Fidler, he was warned that if he violated his probation he would spend a year in jail. 

This sad tale started in Sept. 1997 when Weiland was arrested for heroin possession. He was ordered into a drug treatment program. Last June he admitted to the court that he had been using heroin, and was placed in Sober-House a recovery home, but during the weekend of July Fourth he was expelled from the recovery home, and then fell victim to a drug overdose. 

Weiland had just completed work on the forthcoming Stone Temple Pilots album. With him facing a year in jail, plans for a tour to support the album do not look promising.
