Keyshia Cole Will Not Be Jailed Over 10 Year Bench Warrant

Keyshia Cole was looking at 30 days in the slammer for a 10-year-old bench warrant, due to a 2002 DUI arrest, but a judge closed the case.

The R&B singer's attorney, Shawn Holley, represented her in Santa Clarita Court on Monday, arguing that his client completed the alcohol educational course and that the warrant should be tossed.

According to TMZ, Holley told the judge Keyshia's former lawyer screwed up by failing to inform the court about the program's completion. Holley explained the alcohol ed program — which no longer has the old records — must have notified the DMV, because Keyshia has gotten two drivers licenses since then.

The judge tossed the warrant and pulled Cole's unknowing, long-standing probation for the DUI case.

The warrant was discovered after Cole was arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in Birdman's West L.A. condo last September (2014), which was later dropped.

Cole recently confirmed her music and life focus, insisting, "I need to focus on my career, I need to focus on me, I need to focus on my kid, focus on my faith, and focus on my label." She plans to release new music in the coming weeks, and she admits that she wants to get back to the early part of her career, where her music had a certain swagger. "I wanna be caught up in myself again, I wanna be focus, I wanna be that girl," she says.

Bizzare case… Don't drink and drive kids!
