Grammy winning singer Bruno Mars was in a Las Vegas courtroom this past Wednesday morning, where he pleaded guilty to felony cocaine possession stemming from his bust last September in Las Vegas.
Interestingly enough however, it seems that old saying “What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas” is still holding strong….if Mars can manage to stay out of trouble for the next 12 months. If he can, the felony charge will be wiped from his record.
How exactly? Prosecutors are crediting his clean record for the save. “Bruno is very appreciative that the charges are going to be dismissed,” his lawyer Blair Berk said in a recent press release. The possible future dismissal of the offense has some people shouting “special treatment”, but for the most part [considering the guidelines leading up to that day], most are in favor of the ruling.
The 25-year-old singer will be placed on probation for a year, pay a $2,000 fine, undergo drug counseling and complete 200 hours of community service. After and only after following through with all this, Mars can then withdraw his plea and the case will be dismissed.
All in favor? Should Mars have the option of withdrawing his guilty plea to a felony cocaine charge?
