Paris Hilton has escaped jail time in relation to her collar on cocaine possession charges in Las Vegas last month.

The heiress is scheduled to formally plead guilty Monday to misdemeanor drug possession and misdemeanor obstructing an officer, The Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned. Hilton — who has been arrested for drugs three times in the past six months — will serve a year of probation and avoid a felony conviction under the terms of a plea deal worked out with prosecutors following her arrest on drug charges in Las Vegas, Clark County District Attorney David Roger said Friday.

On Aug. 27, Paris, 29, was arrested alongside her boyfriend, Cy Waits, 34, as the pair cruised along the Sin City strip. Waits is facing one count of driving under the influence and lost his job as Head of Nightclub Operations at the Wynn Resort — an establishment from which Paris has since been banned.

Hilton must also successfully complete a substance abuse program, pay a $2,000 fine, and perform 200 hours of community service, according to the plea deal.
