Paris Hilton makes plea deal, won't go to prison

Posted on

The Associated Press reports Paris Hilton has avoided jail time, thanks to a plea deal. The socialite will also avoid a felony conviction stemming from her drug-related arrest in Las Vegas on Aug. 28. Clark County District Attorney David Roger told the AP that Hilton will plead guilty in court Monday to two misdemeanors: drug possession and obstructing an officer. She will serve probation for one year, complete a drug abuse program and 200 hours of community service, and pay a $2,000 fine.

Hilton was arrested in the Wynn resort in August when police found 0.8 grams of cocaine in her purse. At the time, the reality star told police the purse and drugs were not hers.
