Paris Hilton will avoid jail for last month’s cocaine arrest on the Las Vegas strip by accepting a plea deal in her possession case.
Hilton will now enter guilty pleas on two misdemeanor counts, instead of a felony drug charge. The two 6 month jail terms would be suspended for one year of probation.
The newspaper quoted Roger saying the plea deal “would give us complete control over her future.” “If she does not toe the line and stay out of trouble, she will do one year in the Clark County Detention Center,” Roger told the paper. Hilton was arrested after a traffic stop on the Las Vegas strip on August 27. A motorcycle officer reported smelling the odor of marijuana coming from the Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, Cy Waits.
A bag of cocaine fell out of a purse she was holding and into the hand of a police lieutenant while she was being questioned.
The original felony charge of cocaine possession will be dropped, but Hilton will plead guilty to misdemeanor drug possession and obstructing an officer.
