Willie Nelson’s marijuana possession charges are resolved, if he’ll just plead guilty, pay a small fine and sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” in court for judge Becky Dean-Walker.

County Attorney Kit Bramblett recommended the above mentioned penalties to Hudspeth County’s judge Becky Dean-Walker. Mr. Bramblett did not come up with this all on his own, it came at the judges request. Furthermore, the judge specifically demanded that Willie Nelson appear “Live” in court instead of pleading by mail, a common procedure in these cases. Bramblett says, “She wants to meet Willie, in person.”

Nelson was arrested November 26, 2010,  after a Border Patrol agent smelled marijuana coming from Willie Nelson’s tour bus when it stopped at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint. A little more than six ounces of marijuana was found on the Willie’s tour bus. Nelson was arraigned and released after paying a $2,500 bond.

When the singer rolled through, County Judge Becky Dean Walker issued a mandate to Bramblett: “She told me you don’t dare let Willie Nelson plead through the mail,” the attorney said.

“Willie Nelson is 77 years old and I’m 78,” adds Bramblett. “He’s been my favorite artist all my life. We all know he smokes a little pot.”

The next time Willie Nelson’s tour schedule brings the Honeysuckle Rose close to Sierra Blanca, Bramblett’s office will be notified and Willie will be asked to stop at the Hudspeth County courthouse.
