Conspiracy to possess and distribute? Busted by an undercover DEA agent posing as a supplier?

So ... in other words... he never actually even touched any drugs, he just agreed to plan on buying some from the DEA undercover... wow I wish I could read the indictment i bet it has entrapment written all over it.

btw everyone here who's making prison rape jokes... yeah its TMZ and the internet, but c'mon thats way too ****ed up... the guy doesn't deserve that, don't gloat and joke about it. Could be you too, someday, because some random dude offers you a too-good-to-be-true deal on some painkillers. Grow up and get a sense of humor-- make a 9/11 joke or something. Some things should just be off limits
