Los Angeles (Agencies): Singer-cum-songwriter Bruno Mars is likely to plead guilty in the alleged cocaine possession charge.

25-year-old Mars told a Las Vegas judge that he'll plead guilty in state court on February 14 to a felony cocaine charge that would be wiped from his record if he stays out of trouble for a year, reported a magazine.

Peter Hernandez known as Bruno Mars and a trio of defence lawyers agreed not to contest police accounts that he possessed 2.6 grams of cocaine when he was arrested on September 19 after a Las Vegas nightclub performance.

Defence lawyer Blair Berk said her client appreciated the chance he was receiving as a first offender.

"We're extremely pleased the charge against Bruno is going to be dismissed," she said.
