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 of you LA jailbirds were busted for possession of cocaine?

Think it's not fair that he was sentenced to complete a drug counseling programme? It's not and if you don't like it, you folks in LA must VOTE those clowns off the bench. VOTE!!!! Those bastards aren't appointed, they love the folks that they fvck over won't vote. You idiots won't even complain.. so you deserve to be in jail.

I guess this is the "family emergency" that kept him from touring Canada last week.

For those of you mad at LA courts, the law in California is people charged with felony possession of a controlled substance for the first time are offered a drug diversion program in exchange for pleading guilty. The judges really get no say in these cases. It would be the same in SF or SD. I see reports of people getting similar punishments for first time DUIs (a crime that more directly affects others) in other states, so the "culture of leniency toward celebrities" idea is a bit ignorant.
