Bruno Mars Avoids Conviction In Cocaine Case

The singer-songwriter skates on cocaine charges.

Bruno Mars begins 2011 on a positive note after a monster 2010, as the singer has avoided a felony conviction for possession of cocaine.

According to TMZ, the "Nothin' On You" singer has cut a deal with the Clark County District Attorney's Office in which he receives a "deferred adjudication." This means that if he's able to stay out of trouble for a year, as well as perform community service, there will be no conviction on his record.

Bruno Mars will do 200 hours of community service, and ad the end of the year-long period, the felony will be dismissed.

The charges stem from an October 2010 incident in Las Vegas in which the Atlantic Records artist was found with powder cocaine.

    Actually, deferred adjudication is a very common plea arrangment for first time offenders. I doubt seriously that his celebrity status impacted the DA's decision.

    Thats some ol' bullshit haha

    but if it were ANY non-celeb status human being like you and I.. god knows i'd be looking at 7yrs behind bars with a pending aggrivated assault charge mysteriously looming in the background. Shit's stupid as fuck..just cuz he sings love songs on the radio means he can dodge the judicial system? TI gets a yr for E? Wayne gets a yr for a gun? The law is a bribing/lying competition. don't let anyone tell ya otherwise.

      I doubt you would be looking at seven years for the amount of cocaine found in his possession. If you are a first time offender, it is very likely that you will receive the same plea. TI broke probationary terms of a gun charge. The gun charge was actually a sweet deal that weighed heaviliy on probation. Wayne was caught with a handgun in NY, where celebrities are treated more harsh than the average citizen when it comes to guns - Plaxico Burress will attest. NY claims to have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to guns, but the fact is, many non-celebrity first offenders get probation; or at least historically. Things have become more strict across the board over the past few years.
