Bad news – Bruno Mars plead guilty to felony cocaine possession in a Las Vegas court room this morning. Good news – TMZ reports that if Mars keeps out of trouble for 12 months, the charge will be removed from his record.
TMZ reports Mars is also required to do 8 hours of private counseling and 200 hours of community service with a charitable organization. He must also pay a $2,000 fine, which he’s paying today .

Leonardo DiCaprio was slashed in the face a few years back, allegedly by Aretha Wilson and RadarOnline is reporting that the woman has formally pled no contest to the felony charge.
With the plea entered, Wilson now awaits sentencing at her hearing on November 22nd, where DiCaprio could see justice served. The felony charge carries a punishment of up to four years in a state prison—but with time already served in jail that could be reduced.
Wilson slashed DiCaprio’s face at a party held by Rick Salomon—the guy in the Paris Hilton porn video—in the Hollywood Hills back in 2005. The attack left Leo with a wound that required over 15 stitches to patch up.
Maybe DiCaprio should have gone into Wilson’s dreams and persuaded her to not do such a crazy thing. Either way, at least she’s taking some kind of ownership for her actions and will have to pay the price for her crime.

A blogger from Los Angeles that has been accused of leaking tracks from “Chinese Democracy,” the new album from American rock band “Guns N’ Roses,” has agreed to plead guilty according to E! Online.
Kevin Cogill has agreed to plead guilty to one misdemeanor count of federal infringement. Cogill, 27, remains free on $100,000 bail.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig Missakian told ‘Wired’ that in the hearing taking place on December 8, Cogill will acknowledge the fact that he anticipated the new songs on his website.
The blogger’s lawyer told E! News last month a felony charge had been downgraded to the misdemeanor count, carrying a maximum term of one year in prison. Attorney David Kolyanides said as a first time-offender, it is likely the prosecutors would settle with a probation as opposed to a term in prison.
“Chinese Democracy” is set to release on November 23, 2008.
