No jail time for Anastasio

By Art Shimko

-- On Friday former Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio pleaded guilty in a Fort Edward, N.Y court to attempted criminal possession of Vicodin, Percocet, heroin and Xanax found by police during a traffic stop last December.

Anastasio will be avoiding jail time by entering a drug court program in which he'll undergo weekly court appearances, drug tests and perform community service. If Anastasio completes the program he'll get five years probation but if he fucks up and falls off the wagon he'll get three years behind bars.

"He's accepted responsibility," said Washington County District Attorney Kevin Kortright. "That's all we can ask for."
