Noncommercial AAA KCRW/SANTA MONICA-LOS ANGELES "NEW GROUNDS" personality and GRAMMY-nominated movie music supervisor CHRIS DOURIDAS will face one charge of cocaine possession but not sex charges, as the LOS ANGELES COUNTY District Attorney's Office declines to charge the host with additional counts stemming from a JANUARY 6 incident at a SANTA MONICA bar.
DOURIDAS had been arrested and accused of drugging and attempting to kidnap a 14 year old girl at the CIRCLE BAR, but the D.A.'s office says it felt it could only prove the drug charge beyond a reasonable doubt. DOURIDAS will be arraigned FRIDAY and faces a mazimum three years in prison and a $10,000. fine; he has remained on the air at KCRW.
