Paris Hilton to avoid jail in Las Vegas arrest
LAS VEGAS (AP) – The district attorney in Las Vegas says Paris Hilton will avoid jail time on drug charges under the terms of a plea deal worked out with prosecutors.
Clark County District Attorney David Roger said Friday Hilton has agreed to plead guilty Monday to two misdemeanors stemming from her Aug. 27 arrest in Las Vegas.
Hilton was arrested inside the Wynn resort, after police say a small plastic bag containing 0.8 grams of cocaine fell out of her Chanel purse as she reached for a tub of lip balm in front of a police lieutenant.
A copy of the plea agreement obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows Hilton will plead guilty to drug possession and obstructing an officer to avoid two consecutive six month-sentences in the Clark County Detention Center.
Instead, Hilton will serve a year of probation.
