Mackenzie Phillips Off the Hook for Blow and Heroin
One Infraction at a Time, there, Mackenzie Phillips.
The embattled actress pleaded guilty to felony charges of cocaine possession today in Los Angeles. Her sentence, handed down by Judge Keith L. Schwartz, carries no jail time.
Philips will endure an 18-month rehabilitation program that, if completed successfully, will dismiss all charges upon completion.
“You’re making tremendous progress and I’m proud of you,” Judge Schwartz said of Philips current efforts at an in-patient drug facility in Louisiana.
The actress was arrested at Los Angeles International airport late this summer “carrying what appeared to be heroin and cocaine in baggies and balloons,” an airport police office said.
