Hilton to plead guilty to misdemeanour charges

Paris Hilton is expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanour charges stemming from her arrest for drug possession last month at a Las Vegas hotel-casino.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger says the celebrity socialite has agreed to plead guilty today to drug possession and obstructing an officer in Las Vegas Justice Court under the terms of a plea deal worked out with prosecutors after her August 27 arrest.

Hilton will serve a year of unsupervised probation and complete a drug abuse programme under the plea agreement.

She originally faced a felony cocaine possession charge.

The 29-year-old Hilton was arrested inside the Wynn resort after police claim a small bag containing 0.8 of a gram of cocaine spilled from her Chanel handbag as she reached for lip balm in front of a police officer.
