PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) - Former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss has
pleaded guilty to felony drug charges in Nevada, but will avoid a return trip to prison.

Nye County District Attorney Bob Beckett says Fleiss faces up to five years' probation after pleading guilty Tuesday to unlawful use of methamphetamine and possession of the painkiller hydrocodone without a prescription.

Fleiss declined comment to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Sentencing is scheduled Sept. 15.

The charges stem from an arrest Feb. 7, 2008, outside a plumbing supply store in rural Pahrump, 60 miles west of Las Vegas.

Fleiss is 43. Beckett says if she successfully completesprobation, the two felony convictions will be erased from her record.

Fleiss moved to Nevada after serving prison time in California for running a prostitution ring.
