Paris Hilton sentenced to 45 days in jail (http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/TV/05/04/paris.hilton.ap/index.html)

LOS ANGELES, California (AP via CNN.com) -May 4, 2007- A judge sentenced Paris Hilton to 45 days in jail Friday for violating her probation, putting the brakes on the hotel heiress's famous high life.

Hilton, who parlayed her name and relentless partying into worldwide notoriety, must go to jail on June 5 and she will not be allowed any work release, furloughs, use of an alternative jail or any electronic monitoring in lieu of jail, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer ruled after a hearing.
The judge ruled that she was in violation of the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

"I'm very sorry, and from now on I'm going to pay complete attention to everything. I'm sorry, and I did not do it on purpose at all," she told the judge before he announced the sentence.

She was then ordered to report to a women's jail in suburban Lynwood on the set date or face 90 days behind bars.

As a city prosecutor said during closing arguments that Hilton deserved jail time, Hilton's mother, Kathy, laughed. When the judge ruled, Kathy Hilton then blurted out: "May I have your autograph?"...

...Prosecutors announced earlier they were asking the judge to sentence Hilton to 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation for an alcohol-related reckless driving conviction.

Prosecutors also were seeking to have Hilton ordered to avoid alcohol for 90 days, wear a monitoring device that would chart whether she complies, and have the suspension of her driver's license extended for an additional four months...

...Hilton, 26, pleaded no contest in January to reckless driving stemming from a September 7 arrest in Hollywood. Police said she appeared intoxicated and failed a field sobriety test. She had a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent, the level at which an adult driver is in violation of the law.

She was sentenced to 36 months' probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines.

Two other traffic stops and failure to enroll in a mandated alcohol education program, are what landed the socialite back in court...

This is very sad indeed.

(but on a more serious note, how many true "criminals" have received lesser sentences for more severe crimes? I think that our judicial system is going to the dogs. These judges are just grandstanding for that television or movie script or the book deal. It all started with Ito and OJ. Judge Judy is one of the wealthiest women in entertainment. Look at the nutcase with Anna Nicole, Ito, and I am sure that this guy is more interested in being known as the judge that jailed Paris then any other accomplishment he has on made while n the bench)

I agree, but Judge Judy can't be lumped into this. She's no longer a judge. She's an actor. I actually watched the program once and laughed my head off, but once was much more than enough. It's just like WWF, fully staged and totally fake.

This is very sad indeed.

If anyone wants to send her some mail, so she won't feel so lonely while there, here is a link to the information you need to know:

http://www.lasd.org/lasd_services/custody-services/mail_regulations.html

She will be at the Century Regional Detention Facility, where she will receive 3 low sodium poultry based meals a day.

I'm sorry, but I hope the bi*ch does every freaking second of the time. In my opinion, she knew her license was suspended, and she thought that she could get away with it just because of who she is.

You can all hate me for this (I already hate myself a little :rolleyes:) but I would SO watch a Hilton cam in her isolation cell.

It would be the single greatest reality show of all times, I say! Screw American Idol, "Paris Not at the Hilton" would single-handedly save MY Network or the CW. :D

I am not sure about Paris Hilton but my niece is currently serving an almost year's sentence at the Chowchilla Prison for Women.
She took a neighbor's truck for a joy ride and was caught.
Because of her previous DUI history the judge was real tough with her.
After she gets of prison she must go to a halfway house for about five months.

I'm sort of hoping she will make a run for it before June 5. We're due for another O.J.esque low-speed car chase on the L.A. freeways. She'll probably end up barricading herself in Fendi, flinging beaded bags at the swat team.

Attica! Attica! Attica!

WPB - sorry to hear about your neice. That's got to be tough on the family.

Granted, PH didn't steal a vehicle but I don't see that her sentence is overly harsh when you look at situations such as your neice - and many others who are less notorious than PH. I think she deserves to face reality for a change, personally.

There goes my rep - John's going to have a cow! ;)

My babe is grasping for straws! I signed it though.

To be honest, would it not have been better to sentence her to donate the proceeds from 4 months of public appearances to worthwhile charities in LA? I hear she gets 300K to show up at a bar and party for the night. (My application has also been submitted). She could probably come up with a few million for good causes.

Now, all she is getting is inconvenience and more publicity. This will work well for her in the long run. How bad did the porno she and I made harm her career? How badly was Martha hurt from her stint in the big house?

This spoiled littler brat has to learn that she cannot simply buy her way out of trouble in this country. Laws apply to her, too.

Kairho--true, but then again we need to have reform for a lot of people. So many can indeed buy their way out of trouble.

I am all for making a statement and sending a message, but, why do we do it with the likes of Martha and Paris for really minimal crap? Probably because the judicial system feels they have weaker cases against the bigger fish?

Pretty hard for martha to deny she had the insider info. Pretty hard for Paris to deny she was driving on a suspended license. A lot easier to lie and say they had no idea about the accounting irregularities.

Then they all have to be thrown into jail when their offenses reach the levels which would get you and me thrown into jail.

Hilton broke the law in several ways including the suspended license violation and breaking the terms of parole. Those aren't all that serious but her lack of remorse forced the judge's hand. And she only got slammed for about the same number of jail days as anyone would have.

No special privileges for her or anyone who breaks the law.

Actually I was watching an attorney talking head and the average sentence for her crime in Los Angeles is 15 to 20 days. So the judge "threw the book" at her. According to this talking head.

I agree, we all should be held to the same standard. But reality is a different matter.

I still think she''s hot!

I like how every time she screws up she manages to find clothes to wear out that actually cover her scrawny little body. Soon as the dust settles....it's back to commando! :eek:

She got what she deserved! She gets no sympathy from me. This should teach her that next time she's out driving drunk, speeding, yelling Fire Crotch at pedestrians and she maims one of them, mommy can't just pay someone off to keep her out of trouble.

If anything, celebrities (or wannabes like her), should be held to a higher standard since they KNOW people are looking up to them!

You know, I said not long ago that I felt bad for that Joe guy (the Girls Gone Wild dude) who got locked up for filming 17 years olds or something. Thanks to his buddy Paris...teenage girls think it's cool to be a slut. So how's he supposed to know if they're lying or not? Now he got a bum deal IMO.

Lock 'em all up and throw away the key I say!

ok, rant over :D

She has her license back. It was suspended in November I believe for three months. She was nailed driving on the suspended license and was sentenced to jail, not any more suspension. So she has been legal to drive since February or March.

And yes, she is hot!

Hey...about 10 years ago I spent 30 min in handcuffs in a police station for getting caught driving while suspended because I never paid my $15 parking ticket from a weekend at the shore.

If I can do it, so can she! :p

And I have an ex who worshipped her skinny little ugly butt, so she is on my list........LOL

Well, believe it or not, I actually do have a serious opinion on this. :o

I don't see a point to putting Paris in jail, certainly not from a financial standpoint. It's an expensive burden on taxpayers and the space she'll take up could probably be better utilized accommodating someone who should be removed from society for a period of time. (Make your own jokes. LOL.) I would apply that thought to anyone with a similar conviction. But specifically with Paris Hilton, I imagine there will be enough of a fuss caused within the penal institution itself that even more resources will be required to maintain order.

There are a number of far more productive ways that a debt could be paid back to society. The courts could have still made a public statement with impact by assigning her some sort of really humiliating public service gig and then isolate her in some shoddy motel room (at her expense) on an electronic tether while she's "off duty." Granted there would still be a public expense associated with that, but at least she'd be doing some sort of productive labor on behalf of society to mitigate it.

And that would all be fine and make sense, if this was her first, maybe second offense. But how many chances does she (or anyone) get?

I spent lots of time in courtrooms not long ago (don't ask), and I'd say more than 3/4 of the people facing the judge were there for exactly this reason. DUI, driving while suspended due to past DUI etc...and they all got chances at first. But the # of men and women there for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time was shocking to me. Judge threw them all in jail (which then leads to the major overcrowdiing problem in NJ jails right now).

But seriously, they show the judge they have no respect for his initial decisions, so why should any judge think one more try will solve the problem? And it'd be different if she was just throwing cell phones at people like that other wackjob...but DUI is no laughing matter.

05-10-2007, 11:05 AM
I can see both sides. I'm just feeling cranky about taxpayer money going to house her in the jail. They could probably make her pay for it but any allowable financial penalty is going to have zero effect on her personally, and you know the publicity will do nothing but further her "career" (for lack of a better word. Exactly what does she "do?")

Okay, let's play judge. I say let her empty bed pans at a VA hospital in need for a couple of months. How about cleaning out pens at an animal shelter or clean the kitchen and bathrooms at a homeless shelter?

Never mind. She'd just bribe a judge to give John's daughter, Nicole Richey, the same sentence and then she'd make a TV show out of it. :rolleyes:
