Paris Hilton‘s younger brother Barron pleaded no contest to driving under the influence Wednesday and was sentenced by a Malibu court to three years probation – and, like Lindsay Lohan, ordered to visit a morgue.

Barron, 18, also pleaded no contest to having a fake ID. A second DUI count and a charge of being an unlicensed driver were dropped, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office confirms.

Barron was also sentenced to two alcohol education classes and had his license suspended for a year. He’s due back in court on June 4 for a restitution hearing for the gas station employee’s car he allegedly hit.

He was arrested Feb. 12 after another driver observed his black Mercedes driving erratically on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. A sobriety test found his blood-alcohol level was .14 percent, authorities said.

The California legal limit for a person over 21 is .08 percent, but for a person under 21, any blood-alcohol level is considered legally drunk.

His sister Paris, 27, famously spent time in jail on her own alcohol-related driving case.

Like Barron Hilton, Lohan, 22, was ordered to visit a morgue as part of her DUI-related convictions. First-time DUI offenders are frequently ordered to California’s HAM (Hospital and Morgue) program, which includes a tour of the L.A. County Coroner’s refrigerated crypt.

His plea was first reported by TMZ.
