Embattled ACDC rocker Phil Rudd has failed to escape conviction in court this morning, with Judge Thomas Ingram handing down a sentence of eight months home detention to the drummer for three criminal charges.

In Tauranga District Court today, Rudd received the sentence having already admitted to charges of threatening to kill an employee, and for methamphetamine and cannabis found in his home during a police raid last year.

The 61-year-old appeared tired and expressionless as he stood in the dock while Judge Ingram delivered the sentence, after refusing an application for a discharge without conviction.

Rudd is expected to make a statement to media shortly.
