[photogallerylink id=104755 align=right][lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bruno Mars[/lastfm] has kept his nose clean enough that a judge in Las Vegas expunged his 2010 cocaine possession charge from his record yesterday. The “It Will Rain” singer met face to face with the judge and after meeting the terms of his plea deal, he once again has a clean record.
The 26-year-old Grammy winner, who is also nominated for 6 more trophies this year, had to complete 230 hours of community, service, 8 hours of drug counseling, pay $2,000 in fines as well as stay out of trouble during is probationary period.
These charges stem from Bruno’s arrest in Vegas back in September 2010 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. He plead guilty to having 2.6 grams of cocaine.
After the court decision TMZ caught up with Bruno’s lawyers.
“Bruno earned the dismissal of his charge,” his lawyer Blair Berk told TMZ. “He exceeded the expectations of the court in both his service to the community and his counseling.”
On to the next one, Bruno! We’ll see you at the Grammys!
