Natalie Mejia, a member of the pop group Girlicious, has pleaded guilty to felony cocaine possession and has received a deferred judgment that could result in the charge being dismissed.Mejia entered the plea Wednesday in a Pasadena courtroom, according to Los Angeles district attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison.

The singer was arrested on March 9 in Glendale after police said they found 13 bags of cocaine in her Gucci purse during a traffic stop.

Mejia will be required to attend classes for the next 18 months and undergo counseling.

The felony charge will be dismissed, if she completes the deferred judgment program.
