Pentagram vocalist Bobby Liebling, 63, has been sentenced after pleading guilty to charges of Abuse/Neglect of a Vulnerable Adult-Custodian, believed to be his eighty-seven-year-old mother, Diane Liebling. The singer was first arrested this past spring.
Court documents appear to establish that Liebling entered into a plea agreement with the prosecutor, which resulted in his pleading guilty to the abuse/neglect charge, but pleading not guilty to a first-degree assault charge.
Earlier this month, Judge David A. Boynton sentenced Liebling to eighteen months (1 year and a half) in the Montgomery County Detention Center, minus time already served; upon release, Liebling will be on probation for three years. You can view the records for this case below.
Liebling’s long-running issues with drug addiction and abuse, as well as his penchant for sabotaging Pentagram‘s ascension time and time again, were the focus of the 2011 documentary, Last Days Here.
