Former AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd arrives for sentencing at the New Zealand District Court in Tauranga on July 9, 2015. The 60-year-old Australian, who has lived in Tauranga for over 30 years, hit the headlines last November when he appeared in court accused of attempting to hire a hitman to kill two people. Rudd made a surprise guilty plea on charges of threatening to kill and drug possession at the opening of his trial in New Zealand. The veteran rocker had previously denied all allegations against him, but changed his plea on the first day of the trial at Tauranga District Court.
