Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’ daughter Theodora Richards, 25, was picked up last month after allegedly being spotted scrawling graffiti on the side of a building. Cops said they found some marijuana and hydrocodone pills on her.

Now a judge has agreed to dismiss the case against the model in exchange for two days of community service.

There’s no plea entered as part of the agreement.

Prosecutors agreed to the dismissal “given her lack of a criminal record and her ongoing treatment,” Manhattan assistant district attorney Kelli Clancy told the judge. At her previous court appearance, they had included a one-day visit to a drug treatment program as a condition for a dismissal, but it’s not required now.

One of Richards’ lawyers, Edward W. Hayes, said she was free of any drug trouble.

“She’s as clean as the snow,” he said.

Richards, who wore a finely striped gray-and-white shirtdress and high heels to court, has modeled for Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger. She and her sister are the children of the guitar great and his wife, model Patti Hansen. The 67-year-old rocker also has two other children from a prior relationship.

Famous for his hard living as well as for shaping the raw, rollicking sound of some of rock’s biggest hits, he wrote a best-selling memoir, “Life,” published last year.

    She’s rich, her father is famous and she has a $500 an hour lawyer. You mean she’s NOT going to jail? What a surprise

    If there was equal justice in the world OJ would have been in jail serving a life sentence along side Michael Jackson back in the 90’s. Only the Man Upstairs knows the truth and serves out Equal Justice.

    Annoying how our justice system makes different provisions for different social status levels. My son was arrested last year (age 16) for graffiti on a construction board, taken to jail and held overnight. The prosecutor refused to agree to dismissing it based on his age and first time offense. It was dragged out for 6 months and his disposition included 40 hours of Community Service, his record won’t be clear for another year and had to pay a $200 fee to the courts. Equal justice? Pathetic.
