Fred Willard

Will NOT Be Prosecuted

0719_fred_willard_article_7Fred Willard will NOT be prosecuted for lewd conduct ... TMZ has learned, but there are strings attached.

TMZ broke the story ... Willard was arrested Wednesday night at an adult movie theater in Hollywood.  Cops claim Willard had his penis in his hand.

Sources tell us ... the L.A. City Attorney is willing to drop any notion of prosecution of Fred, provided he enroll in what's called an Alternative Prosecution Program -- which is a 2-week course on obeying laws relating to the alleged offense.

It's unclear if Willard will play ball.  If he does, he won't be prosecuted, but if he doesn't the City Attorney can file charges.

Just another example of the different "justice" system that exists for the rich and famous. Let that had been a regular old bloke caught in public with his genitalia in hand...we all know nobody would have been so quick to offer him an Alternative Prosecution Program.

It sounds like a good deal to me. I hope he isn't a crusader for the right to masturbate in public. He could use some tips on how to behave if you ask me.

Taking the deal is the same as saying you're guilty. Don't take the deal, Fred.

I'd tell the DA to f*** off. They are going to have a hard time getting a conviction.

Dude still lost his job. Last time I give to PBS because I masturbate, too. My money isn't good enough for them.
