Willie Nelson plea deal nixed

Posted on

A Texas judge rejected a deal that would have allowed Willie Nelson to plead guilty to marijuana possession and pay a $500 fine, according to the Associated Press. Hudspeth County Judge Becky Dean-Walker said that she nixed the prosecutor’s offer because he “doesn’t do that for anybody else.” Nelson could face up to a year in jail for the misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, stemming from his November arrest. Nelson’s lawyer did you immediately respond to a request for comment.
