Mars, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, is due back in Clark County court on February 14 for a plea date.

He’s expected to plead guilty in exchange for a dismissal of the charge if he pays a $2,000 fine, attends drug counseling, finishes 200 hours of community service and does not have any further legal scrapes.
