Willy Nelson avoids jail. Judge doesn’t want to be “mean”

Posted 30 Mar 2011 in Artist News, Guitar Crime

Willie Nelson is not going to jail over his marijuana charge. The judge says he won’t be “mean” to the country legend.

Nelson was arrested on a marijuana possession charge in Texas last November when a police officer found the substance on his tourbus. Now the Hudspeth County prosecutor is letting him off with a fine.

Nelson had been found with 6oz of marijuana. Prosecutors said that when the packaging was removed it only weighed 3oz, making the offence just a misdemeanour.
