According to a report on E! News, Puddle Of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has pleaded guilty to cocaine possession charges.

By pleading guilty, Scantlin avoids jail time and also had two misdemeanor charges - under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license - dropped by the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office.

The three charges were the result of the rocker's drug-related arrest in Culver City, Calif. this past January.

As a condition of his guilty plea, Scantlin is now under 18 months' deferred judgment, which includes a drug counseling program.

It's been a rough 12 months for the Puddle of Mudd singer. In December 2011, Scantlin was cited by the government for owing more than $60,000 in back taxes, and last week he finalized his divorce from model Jessica Nicole.

    Kids, dont take the path that this guy is taking. He is a bad influence. He is a schizophrenic psycho, yeah!
    "But judge, I can't go to jail, it'll destroy my career!" *Judge Snickers* "Okay, if you really believe that..."
    He's thinkin' that he'd rather be stoned. Seriously, is this really a surprise to anybody?
    he's lucky that he can avoid jailtime just for adding another offense from prior charges because usually it all adds up....seriously though, I hope this guy can get clean because drugs will ruin his life and career
    you shoulda seen this ****er throw a fit in indianapolis a couple years ago after doing coke before the show. PoM sounded like shit that night and he knew it.
