Puddle of Mudd Singer Pleads Guilty To Cocaine Possession
TMZ broke the story ... Scantlin was charged with felony coke possession back in April following his January arrest in L.A. Scantlin was also charged with two misdemeanors -- being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license.
But Scantlin struck a deal with prosecutors that will keep him out of the pokey -- agreeing to plead guilty to the possession charge. The two misdemeanors were dropped.
In exchange for the guilty plea, Scantlin was sentenced to complete a drug counseling program.
He must show proof of enrollment by August -- and if he messes up, he could be sent to jail. more on this story
