The "Voice" judge faces four years in state prison if convicted.

Prosecutors have charged Cee Lo Green with illegally giving a woman ecstasy while at a dinner in Los Angeles last year.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office charged the singer, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, on Monday. Callaway was charged with one felony count of furnishing a controlled substance. If convicted he faces four years in state prison.

Prosecutors say they declined to file a rape charge against the singer.
