Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin has plead guilty to coke possession and has been sentenced to complete a drug counseling program in Los Angeles.

The plea and sentencing stem from a January incident in which Scantlin was charged with felony possession, as well as misdemeanor driving under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license.

Scantlin, 40, struck a deal with prosecutors and agreed to plead guilty to the possession charge in exchange for the two misdemeanors being dropped.

Scantlin must show proof of enrollment in the drug counseling program by August or he could be sent to jail.

When Scantlin was arrested on Jan. 12, the singer was reportedly found in possession of powder and pills, but only cocaine was named by the LAPD.

Puddle of Mudd achieved modern rock success in 2001 with major label debut “Come Clean,” which included the singles “Control” and “Blurry.” Scantlin and the rest of the group released “re:(disc)overed,” a covers album, in August 2011.
