Teen-age actor Corey Feldman admitted possessing heroin and cocaine but avoided jail in a plea bargain that bars him from working in movies or TV while he undergoes drug rehabilitation.

Feldman, who appeared in such films as "Stand By Me" and "The Lost Boys," was fined $5,000 Monday and placed on four years' probation. In exchange for his no-contest pleas, prosecutors agreed to dismiss charges of transporting heroin and possessing the drug for sale.

As part of the deal, Feldman agreed to finish a seven-month drug program he entered in October but was suspended from recently for having an unauthorized visitor.

During rehabilitation, Feldman will be barred from working in the entertainment industry, said attorney Richard Hirsch. Feldman, 19, was found with drugs twice after roadside stops. He also was arrested for driving with a suspended license.
