Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin has been given a chance to clean up his act.

E! News confirms that the band's frontman pleaded guilty to his felony cocaine possession charge on Tuesday.

In exchange, Scantlin not only avoided any jail time, but the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office dropped the rocker's two misdemeanors—under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license. All three charges stemmed from Scantlin's January arrest in Los Angeles.

Scantlin is now under 18 months' deferred judgment, which includes a drug counseling program.

Although he does not have to appear in court, Scantlin must show proof of enrollment in the drug program by August 8. The DA's office says if he completes the program, the possession charge could be dropped.
