Star Actor Kiefer Sutherland was sentenced Wednesday to 48 days in the Glendale, California city jail in connection with California DUI & drunk driving cases.

Sutherland, 40, was also ordered to spend five years on California DUI probation, complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program and six months of weekly therapy sessions, and pay a $510 fine.

Sutherland received 30 days in connection with a September arrest in West Los Angeles California for having a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 or above. The remaining 18 days involve a probation violation from a 2004 California DUI case.

In 2004, the actor who plays counterterrorism agent Jack Bauer on Fox TV’s “24” was sentenced to five years’ probation, 50 hours of community service and was ordered to complete a California DUI alcohol program for a prior California DUI arrest.
