Willie Nelson To Get Out Of Jail Through The Power Of Song!

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueLegal Matters

willie nelson to get out of jail for a song

Freedom in return for the sound of his voice? Who's his judge…Ursula from The Little Mermaid???

Actually, Willie Nelson's got it EVEN better than Ariel, because she had to completely give away her voice, but Willie Nelson only has to sing a song in court to get out of jail!

Yep. Texas Attorney Kit Bramblett recommended that Nelson's judge let him go free on marijuana possession charges in exchange for pleading guilty, a minimal fee, and…a live performance in court.

Bramblett is proposing that Nelson return to court and perform Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, as opposed to performing community service…or serving time in jail.

Here's what Bramblett had to say about it:

"I am aware that he has been known to use pot for many years. I also know that Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson used to go out after supper and smoke a line of hemp and that's what marijuana's made out of."

Ha! But when will Willie's mandatory performance take place? More from Bramblett:

"The sheriff has threatened me with my life if I do tell because he says that 50,000 people will show up in the town."

We hope the judge agrees to this, and everything works out for you, Willie!

…And be sure to stay out of trouble, otherwise next time they might make you sing TWO songs! GASP!

Do U think Willie Nelson's plea deal is fair?

    only in texas!!!

    I love Willie Nelson! Weed should be legalized.



  3. 3

    I love it. He's saving the tax payers money and getting a free gig in exchange. I bet Willie will sing more than one song! Only in Texas and I love that!



  4. 4

    I can't believe the tax payer's money is being wasted on marijuana smoking. Big deal, who cares, smoke away Willie. Why don't they just legalize it and be done with it.

    Dumbasses. Maybe it's time for American taxpayers to inform these idiots that they are being paid to do a job on behalf of the taxpayers. Their jobs are not for their personal entertainment. Willie Nelson's celebrity should have no acknowledgement in these proceedings, and his punishment should be equal to the same punishment as any other convicted person. The whole justice system is a joke when individuals can abuse their authority in this way. And while we're on the subject of pot, the American taxpayers should also realize that marijuana is less harmful than cigarettes and/or alcohol, so why do you suppose the government allows cigarettes and alcohol, but does not allow pot? Well, maybe it's because almost half of the wage earners, which support the current cash flow of the government, are able to pay fines when they get busted with a joint. Suckers. Prohibition of marijuana is nothing but a cash-grab by the police, courts and government workers, to keep themselves employed. If you are going to be jailed, arrested, convicted and sentenced for smoking pot, then you should also be arrested, convicted and sentenced for drinking the more harmful…alcohol.

    ridiculous. I sing better than he does and would never get such a deal. Someone would have to PAY me to listen to his so-called singing.

    but yes, who cares if someone wants to addle his brain with weed….

    Re: Barbarella-X – agree

    Free Willy!

    Sounds like win-win-win all around! Willie avoids the clink; the courtroom gets a break in its routine and the legal system develops a precedent for sentencing community service for simple possession, while still paying lip service to the budget needs/desires of law enforcement. Handing out community service to everyone busted for possession would likely create a nationwide beautification movement that'll save local, state and federal governments billions in infrastructure costs. The money, still going to law enforcement, can be used to combat the higher echelons of the drug trade and its violence. Communities can thus be made safer and more attractive and efficient.

    Singing better than sing sing.



  11. 11

    You watch, now everyone will offer to sing to get off.



  12. 12

    This whole idea of Willie singing for his freedom was a plot line on an episode of The Dukes of Hazard back in the day.

    A judge with some common sense. Whodathunkit. On the other hand, why do some others get years for a joint? Standardize punishment for simple offences.

    Re: Phibes – Leaps and Madly Waves dorsal fin in agreement.



  15. 15

    the only thing that pisses me off about this is the fact that if i were to be caught with weed, and offered to sing as a 'punishment', the judge would laugh at me.



  16. 16

    That is so fair. Everybody knows Willie smokes weed. He doesn't hurt anyone. Let him be. I would want to hear the "Red Headed Stranger", though.
