Steve-O pleads guilty to felony cocaine charge but avoids jail time

By Christopher Rocchio, 06/04/2008 

Stephen "Steve-O" Glover is apparently being rewarded for facing the music and cleaning up his act.

The 33-year-old former Jackass, Wildboyz and Dr. Steve-O star pleaded guilty in a Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday to a felony cocaine possession charge stemming from a March arrest, E! News reported.

However his attorney Barry Sands told E! News that due to Steve-O's 85 days of sobriety while in rehab -- and his commitment to remain that way -- he will avoid jail time if he's able to successfully complete his treatment program.

"The entire case will be dismissed when he completes the program," Sands told E! News.  "It will be like it never happened.  You can't beat that."

Steve-O was placed under citizen's arrest on March 3 at his Hollywood apartment complex on suspicion of vandalism and drug possession after he was filmed putting holes in the wall of a neighbor's apartment.  He was charged with felony cocaine possession stemming from the incident.

Realizing it was time to for Steve-O to clean-up his act, his friends "physically forced" him to go to Thalians Mental Health Center, where he completed a four-day stint under observation after an alleged suicide attempt. He then underwent further evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Steve-O was originally scheduled to be arraigned for felony cocaine possession on March 26 but forfeited his $10,000 bail to instead continue to receive treatment. He initially pleaded not guilty during an April hearing but entered the guilty plea this week due to the lack of jail time upon completion of treatment.

Steve-O will continue to receive treatment in his undisclosed rehabilitation program until his next court hearing on July 8, E! News reported.

"He's a happy camper," Sands told E! News of his client.
