Here are the pictures of Paris Hilton leaving court this morning after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine.
Paris appeared before a judge this morning, where she plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges; one for cocaine possession, the other lying to a police officer.
E! reports that on both counts, Hilton was required to state exactly what she did wrong. For the first:
“Guilty, your honor,” she said. “I was in possession as well as tell an officer that the bag wasn’t my purse.”
When pressed to state for the record what, exactly she was in possession of, Hilton responded: “Cocaine, your honor.”
As for the second:
“Guilty, your honor,” she pleaded. “I said that the purse wasn’t mine to the officer, your honor.”
In exchange for her guilty plea, Paris must stay clear of trouble for a year, pay a $2,000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service. Paris must also attend a substance abuse program.
Clark County Detention Center Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure, told Hilton, “The purpose here is to change your conduct. [The Clark County Detention Center] is not the Waldorf=Astoria.”
“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,” reads the deal.
As to why she misled authorities, a source close to Hilton tells PEOPLE, “At the moment it all came down, she was scared. But since then, she’s had time to think about her actions, and she’s taking this really seriously.”
