'Billy the Exterminator'

Cops Sweet Plea Deal

In Roach Case

EXCLUSIVE

"Billy the Exterminator" won't be bugged by those pesky inmates looking for some late night love ... because he just got a reprieve by a judge.

The A&E star -- real name William Bretherton -- and his wife, Mary, were busted last April when cops caught them with synthetic marijuana and a smoking device. Both parties pled guilty Friday to drug possession.

As part of the plea deal ... Billy was sentenced to 60 days in jail, BUT he won't have to serve time if he pays a $500 fine, completes four 8-hour days of community service, undergoes substance abuse evaluation and steers clear of drugs and alcohol.

To make sure he's clean ... Billy must submit to random drug testing.

If Billy stays clean for a year, he's free to pursue his dream of crucifying all the critters his little heart desires.

Ok so a guy who routinely does good and is all about helping people would get sentenced to 60 days in jail for fake weed, but Lindsay Lohan is dodging jail everyday for being a routine felon? Ok...

From a red stater, I appreciate people with dedication to an unappreciated but neccesary job. We need more people like this. People that do a job others can't or won't. Their pricing a balance of what the market will stand, their positioning in the market, and the costs of the companies model. I take it back, capitalism, (the most successful model for raising station) sucks.

You friend

This is why government wants to keep weed legal. It's a way to extort money from you.
