Paris Hilton Pleads Guilty, Escapes Jail For Now

by at . Comments

As predicted, Paris Hilton pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and will remain free following her arrest for cocaine possession last month in Las Vegas.

Under Paris' plea deal, she is guilty of two misdemeanors, and must serve a year of probation and 200 hours of community service. She was fined $2,000.

She was charged with felony drug possession, but that was downgraded under the plea. The judge warned the ho-tel heiress that this is no wrist slap.

"You have now been sentenced to one year in Clark County Detention Center. I can assure you it's not the Waldorf Astoria," said Judge Joe Bonaventure.

Provided she actually stays out of trouble for that time, the sentence is suspended. One screw up and she does time. Lindsay Lohan is in a similar boat.

Dressed in a white and black dress, Paris admitted she lied when, having been found in possession of coke, she told officers the purse wasn't hers.

Consider us shocked. Hilton was arrested after boyfriend Cy Waits was pulled over and eventually charged with DUI. Tell us: Can Paris stay clean?
