Bruno Mars to Plead Guilty to Drug Possession
Back in September, Bruno mars was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance after a Las Vegas Bathroom attendant turned him in (I wonder if Bruno forgot to tip the attendant). He will be in court on Friday.
--On Friday, Bruno will plead guilty to felony cocaine possession. As part of his deal, he'll have to pay a $2,000 fine, and will have to do 200 hours of community service and undergo drug counseling. But he won't have to go to jail.
--He could've been sentenced to up to four years behind bars, but since this is his first offense, he'll get away with a year of informal probation. And as long as he keeps his nose clean . . . literally . . . he'll have all this erased from his record.
--Bruno's lawyer doesn't think there will be any future problems. He says, quote, "Bruno is very appreciative [that] he is being given this opportunity as a first offender not to suffer any conviction and instead to have his charge dismissed.
--"He is taking all of this quite seriously."
