Sly Stone

November 16, 2011 by staff 

Sly Stone, Thankyoufolettinmeouttajail … again. Legendary East Bay musician Sly Stone has cut a plea deal to stay out of jail for cocaine possession.

Under the deal, Stone, who has already put in 30 days of in-patient rehab, must complete an additional 60 days. The 68-year-old Family Stone singer and Vallejo native was arrested in Los Angeles on April 1 after police allegedly caught him with freebase cocaine.

Stone has had trouble with drugs and the law over the years. Lots of stories about his reclusive lifestyle have emerged over the past decade, including a report earlier this year that he was living in a trailer in South Central Los Angeles.

Stone pleaded no contest Tuesday and received the 60-day rehab sentence. If Stone completes the rehab on time, charges against him will be dismissed without probation.

Stone’s lawyers James E. Silverstein and Peter Knecht told TMZ, “We are very pleased with the outcome of this case.”
