Paris Hilton Pleads Guilty in Cocaine Case

9/20/2010 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton just pled guilty to two misdemeanors in her Las Vegas cocaine possession case -- in a move that will keep her out of the slammer ... if she can stay out of trouble.

Paris just fessed up to misdemeanor drug possession and obstructing an officer -- and in exchange she must pay $2,000 in fines, complete 200 hours of community service and complete an "intensive" substance abuse program. She will also be on probation for one year.

The judge informed Paris that she has been given a one year suspended sentence -- which means if she is arrested for anything other than a minor traffic violation, she will spend 1 year behind bars.

The judge then warned Hilton, "The Clark County Detention Center is not the Waldorf Astoria."

Hilton was busted back on August 27 after cops found her in possession of less than a gram of cocaine.

This "kid" is the result of parents who have never disciplined her,
never taught her doing drugs and drinking has its consequences
and have always let her do everything she wants. She has no morals
and really thinks she is cool getting arrested and having drugs in
her possession. I still don't understand why the California legal
system lets celebrities do whatever they want,in any other state
specially Texas she would be in much more trouble. In Texas if you
are caught with a significant amount of drugs you go to jail imme-
diately,if it's a small amount a police report is done and you get
a huge fine. California needs to tighten its laws with people in-
volved in drug cases including people from Hollywood. But if she
ends up going to jail again she will finally understand she did
wrong.

This case really let me down as far as equal justice in Nevada. However, the judge is only partially culpable, as the bulk of this injustice lies with the prosecutor (DA's office) in changing what would ordinarily be a felony offense to a misdemeanor (and with minor penalty to boot). I really can't believe that she wasn't even assigned a probation officer, or at least random drug testing (which is the "norm" in most cases of this nature).

My bet is that she'll repeat her actions thinking she'll get away with violating law(s), I just hope she doesn't injure anyone other than herself, and that she gets the justice she is due.

Why do they bother to arrest her they are not going to punish
her for her actions.Cocaine possession is not a simple charge. if you would throw the book at some of these devas,some would get the picture.oh and people like Harvey would not have a job..
you know "Im a Lawyer" what a crock... this a non story.

It is amazing how the USA drug laws differ from state to state and county to county. If she had been arrested in Harris County, TX..she would have had a felony long ago. Seems money buys everything in LA and LA County should set an example that money CANT BUY FREEDOM. Obviously, it does. And the taxpayers just keep enabling their representatives to do so.

With every deal there is a price to pay. When you accept a deal like this you have to agree to cooperate fully with law enforcement so this means she gave up her connections to get the deal. I would not want to be Her connection that is for sure. If her boyfriend had been wearing and using his sta****wear all of this could have been avoided.
