Yesterday I reported that Willie Nelson would have to sing just to get out of his pot charges. Do you think the judge was overstepping just a bit, anyway?

The same judge that asked him to sing is now backpedaling.  According to Rolling Stone the judge had this to say:

Judge Becky Dean-Walker told the Associated Press that the idea – presented by Hudspeth County Attorney Kit Bramblett – was just a joke and "it got out of hand." Nelson will be able to plead guilty and pay a small fine without appearing in court.

Either way... It's WILLIE NELSON.  There aren't even any good jokes left about him being busted for pot.  Fine him.  Have him do a benefit concert and send him on his way... until next time.
