Paris Hilton Avoids Jail Term

Paris_hilton_universal_photoParis Hilton has escaped the claws of prison term after she agreed to enter two guilty pleas in misdemeanor cases.

The 29-year-old actress will plead guilty to misdemeanor drug possession and misdemeanor obstructing an officer instead of a felony drug charge. Instead of a one year jail term, Hilton will be serving one year in probation and she must pay a $2000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service.

She was arrested late last month in Las Vegas with boyfriend Cy Waits. Police found a small plastic bag containing cocaine in her purse. They were stopped for inspection after a policeman in a motorcycle smell marijuana from the Cadillac Escalade car of Waits.

Following is the statement of her deal. “Defendant shall stay out of trouble. Defendant agrees that an arrest for any charge, excluding minor traffic violations for which a citation is issued, shall result in the immediate termination of her probation and the execution of the suspended sentences.”
