Vietnam War Saves 'CHiPs' Star from Jail

1/28/2011 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Larry Wilcox – star of the '80s show  “CHiPs” -- was spared a jail sentence for his role in a financial scheme ... partly because he fought in the Vietnam War.

Larry Wilcox

Wilcox -- had recently pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and was facing up to five years in federal prison.  Instead, Wilcox was sentenced to 3 years probation and 500 hours of community service.

After Wilcox shed a few tears inside the courtroom, the judge explained the actor was spared the slammer because of his service in Vietnam coupled with his extensive record of community service.

Wilcox joined the Marines in 1967 and spent 13 months in Vietnam as an artilleryman.

Semper Fi.

After reading all these comments, and then the reply from Vette and Amy. I have to say that I totally agree. Im also fed up with the gloating that Sue Walsh does around the internet where Larry is concerned. So bloody what if he is your friend. We are talking about him not you. You seem to think that Larry and Sue is a combination when in fact its really not. Its evident you have feelings for Larry and are just trying to get in with his family. Good luck with that. But till then can you please tone down the lies as we know that is all it is. Fabrication on your part. Even if its all true then we really dont care.
Back to Larry. Im glad he got off, but am sick to death of Sue Walsh.

Well seeing as Sue posted this link on her site, and I would never have seen it other wise, I thought I may as well place my bit too. I like Larry and enjoy the facebook site, but hate Sue going on and on and on about Larry text her, Larry called her Larry rang her etc, such bragging, and it is bragging. She promises of chats, the last one never arose, and I doubt this one will, unless she pays Larry. Also I hate the way she will act all innocent, but then when someone makes a comment on different facebooks or such she will jump on them and make it like they are making or saying something so bad, when really they are not, it turns out its Sue that is saying the bad stuff by jumping down that persons throat and making big dramas about it, I mean half of us would never have known about this had the drama queen not posted about it in the first place, like other stuff too. I am on her Larry site, and as she can get our names there and ban us I would never let on who I was, as im sure all the others dont either.
I don't like Sue, but I like Larry, thats it. Does anyone like Sue? Really? I doubt that very much.

To those of you attacking Sue (Vette & Amy) - please don't. Sue is a very honourable and pleasant lady, and I hope she doesn't bother dignifying your comments with any further responses. You are both disgusting and should be ashamed of yourselves. I've been a member of Sue's facebook page for some time now - it's been there a long time, and has nothing to do with the court case. Sue runs the page so that Larry's fans have a way of making contact with him, and she is very good at what she does. She does know Larry personally, and runs the page on his behalf. Sue and all of us on that page accept that Larry made a mistake, but he has faced up to it and taken reponsibilty for his bad judgement - why don't you leave him alone now and go and talk about something you actually know about!

Jan how little you know Sue. How very little. I am guessing you have only seen her on that site, but not other sites or other pages, all over the net where she slams people down, and calls them down and pours hatred out. No no, you have only seen the nice Sue. Well then that is why you really know well not much about the lady at all. Come to think of it she is no lady. If someone is to say something that she doesnt agree with, instead of taking it offline she will slam that person live on any board, no matter where she is. No one is allowed to have an opinion at all, unless its exactly what Sue has said. No one is allowed to make a comment that will disagree with anything that Sue will say. If they do she will bad mouth them and put them down, doesnt matter who it is, or what site it is on. Airline Yahoo all of them. Ive seen the comments. So you Jan who *thinks* you know Sue, wrong lady. You think you do. No one really knows her, I dont even think she realises what a cow she is to others, and how many people as you can see on here alone who dare to say really dont.

Surely this site is meant to be about whether the courts were right or not in their sentencing of Larry - not be a personal attack on people who supported Larry - we are all entitled to our opinions, but they should not be allowed to become this personal Grow up all of you - and Spew - at least have the guts to admit who you are!

Sue is a very nice person. I have met her in person. Don't slam someone you don't know. That also goes for Larry. I met him and he is very sweet!! Don't slam people you don't know. He admitted he made a mistake. Who hasn't? Put your energy into something else.
