AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has received a sentence of 8 months of home detention after pleading guilty to charges that were brought up against him late last year. The charges included threatening to kill as well as possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

Rudd will spend eight months on home detention, the New Zealand judge ruled.

When Rudd was arrested in November he was charged with attempting to procure murder, however that charge was later dropped due to insufficient evidence.  He was released on bail shortly after his arrest.

Rudd was replaced by drummer Chris Slade on AC/DC’s Rock or Bust tour and according to an interview Rudd did in May with A Current Affair, he has had no contact with the band members.
