FORT EDWARD -- Ernest "Trey" Anastasio, the former frontman of the jam rock band Phish, has been offered a plea deal with a reduced drug possession charge, which, if he accepts, could wrap up his case Friday.
Anastasio would likely appear in Washington County court that day if he agrees to plead guilty to fifth-degree attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance and go through a drug court program, said Washington County District Attorney Kevin Kortright.
A conference was conducted earlier today, during which Kortright, Washington County Judge Kelly McKeighan and Anastasio's attorney, Stephen Coffey, discussed the plea deal. Anastasio was not present.
Coffey said he has to discuss the offer with Anastasio. (click for more...)
