Former Social Distortion drummer Casey Royer has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for taking heroin in front of his 12-year-old son.

The punk legend appeared at California's Orange County Superior Court on Wednesday (06Apr11) and pleaded guilty to one count of being under the influence of a controlled substance for taking an overdose which left him in hospital last month (Mar11). The 52 year old was arrested upon his recovery.

He also faced a child abuse and endangerment charge as his young son was with him at the time of the incident, but it was dismissed by prosecutors. Royer was handed a 90-day jail sentence and placed on probation for three years. He is currently free on bail while a date for his incarceration is set, according to TMZ.com. (LR/WNWCZM/ZN)
