Sutherland was serving a sentence for drunken driving. He was nabbed in September while still on probation from a prior conviction. He pleaded no contest and took his punishment like a man without citing that the legal system was out to get him because he was a celebrity.
He was also sentenced to five years probation and has to complete a 18 month alcohol education program. In addition he must attend six months of weekly therapy sessions.
Canadian born Sutherland is the star of the Emmy Award winning show 24.
