Barron Hilton pleads no contest to DUI

  |   April 9, 2008 at 8:45 PM
MALIBU, Calif., April 9 (UPI) -- Hotel heir Barron Hilton pleaded no contest and was sentenced to three years probation Wednesday in connection with his drunk driving arrest in California.

Hilton's attorney, Richard Hutton, entered the plea on behalf of the 18-year-old, who was not in court, E! Online reported.

Hilton pleaded no contest to driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol level above California's 0.08 percent legal limit and unlawful possession of a false license.

The charges were filed following a February drunken driving arrest in Malibu, Calif.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner H. Jay Ford sentenced Hilton to three years' probation, fined him $2,000, suspended his license for a year and ordered him to spend time at the Los Angeles County morgue, which will fulfill one of three alcohol-education programs Hilton was ordered to complete, E! Online said.

Barron Hilton is the younger brother of actress and reality TV star Paris Hilton.
