Theodora Richards
Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards' daughter Theodora will get her New York City graffiti and drug case dismissed in exchange for doing two days of community service, a judge said Thursday.

The AP reports Richards smiled but stayed mum as she left a Manhattan court. Theodora has until late June to do the community service and won't have to enter a plea; she’ll have her record wiped clean, prosecutors said, as long as she stays out of trouble for six months.

Police said officers spotted her March 1 writing the letters "T" and "A," with a heart symbol between them, in red ink on the side of a Manhattan building that houses a convent. Richards had a small amount of marijuana and 8 1/2 hydrocodone pills in her purse at the time of her arrest; she acknowledged she didn't have a prescription for the hydrocodone, a narcotic pain reliever, police said in a court document. “I hope I don't get in trouble for this," she told police, according to the document.

Prosecutors agreed to the dismissal "given her lack of a criminal record and her ongoing treatment," Manhattan assistant district attorney Kelli Clancy told the judge. At her previous court appearance, they had included a one-day visit to a drug treatment program as a condition for a dismissal, but it's not required now.

Theodora is one of two daughters of the Rolling Stones guitarist, 67, and model Patti Hansen.
