The Marijuana Case Continues! Judge Rejects Willie Nelson's Plea Bargain

judge rejects willie nelson plea bargain

Sorry to hear it, Willie!

To recap, last year Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession when the cops found weed on his tour bus at a border checkpoint.

Then last month, he struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead no contest in exchange for reducing the charge. At the time, he was ordered to pay a $500 fine and he was told he wouldn't go to jail. We had also heard that if he behaved himself for a month, the judge would dismiss the case entirely!

All seemed pret-ty fair to us, but unfortunately West Texas judge Becky Dean-Walker has rejected the plea bargain.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"It's not right simply because he doesn't do that for anybody else."

Dean-Walker really seems to have it out for Willie, because she wants him charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, which could result in up to a year in jail.

We see where she's coming from, but the plea bargain DID seem fair to us ESPECIALLY if he's been behaving himself!

We'll be sure to stay tuned as Willie's marijuana case continues to unfold…

    Rediculous! There are REAL criminal cases that need to be brought to justice. The only corrupt things going on here is a narrow minded judge,the invaluable use of the court's time and misuse of taxpayers money.

    I wonder how much money the government loses on prosecuting marijuana possession cases every year, versus how much they'd make if they legalized and taxed it.

    This is wrong on so many levels, one of America's Icons may go to jail for smoking a joint while on tour (shocking) but a Florida mom can kill her daughter and get away scott free — SO WRONG!!

    Another twisted american law….marijuana, really….?? The stuff just mellows one out and that is it…does not excite, make people violent or yes, kill people…like alcohol…I will never ever understand why a plant that can actually help people with little altering effects is illegal….

    Does this mean that Willie will be someone's prison bitch?
