Puddle of Mudd Singer

Pleads Guilty

To Coke Possession

7/5/2012 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0705_west_scantlin_article_la_county_sheriffPuddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin pled guilty to cocaine possession yesterday -- but TMZ has learned, he won't be going to jail.

TMZ broke the story ... Scantlin was charged with felony coke possession back in April following his January arrest in L.A. Scantlin was also charged with two misdemeanors -- being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license.

But Scantlin struck a deal with prosecutors that will keep him out of the pokey -- agreeing to plead guilty to the possession charge. The two misdemeanors were dropped.

In exchange for the guilty plea, Scantlin was sentenced to complete a drug counseling program.

He must show proof of enrollment by August -- and if he screws up, he could be sent to jail.

How many judges are really taken seriously in LA when a judge gives probation and then threatens with jail. whin that happens the court should just bring back the supreme court of comedy it is just as funny.

Do you think in his mind he was thinking how many judges said the same thing to Lindsay Lohan and then started to laugh at the judge.

Never heard of this group and this loser looks like a complete drug addict.


Why do so many short-talent guys think they can do Morrison when they have no skill?


I might as well ask why people get facial tats... it's about being stupid and "edgy".

You gotta get new friends my man. Going back to your bud's will get a coke-free guy back on the mirror. It's tough but find some new dudes to hang with. It's the only way to shake the habit. Best of luck.
