Rush Gets Off

I don't get it at all. Rush Limbaugh is not going to be charged for his recient embarressment with the bottle of Viagra that wasn't his. What I don't understand is how this isn't the same thing as what he was arrested for in the first place and why he is on probation.

Charges in the Viagra case could have nullified a deal Limbaugh reached with prosecutors last month in which a single “doctor shopping” charge was deferred for 18 months, so long as Limbaugh does not get arrested for any reason.

Authorities had accused Limbaugh of illegally deceiving multiple doctors to get overlapping painkiller prescriptions. Limbaugh denied the charges but admitted he was addicted to painkillers.

I wonder if the average joe would have gotten the same treatment.
