Trey Anastasio received a reduced sentence of three years’ probation for a drug conviction after he successfully completed a counseling and treatment program.

The former Phish frontman had pleaded guilty to a felony charge for possessing painkillers without a prescription during a traffic stop in December 2006. He faced up to three years in state prison if he failed the drug program, which he began in April 2007.

The 43-year-old’s guilty plea was reduced to a misdemeanor Wednesday because he’ll graduate from the drug program next month and has completed community service. In January, he spent two days in jail for missing a scheduled drug counseling session.

The Richmond, Vt., resident lived in Saratoga Springs during treatment.
