Its Official: Jail Time for Paris

Posted by Kimberly on May 5th, 2007

Yup, that’s right, Paris Hilton has officially been sentenced to 45 days in jail! Her days of living above the law and not being responsible for her actions are officially over. Just a few hours ago Paris sat in front of the judge as she was sentenced to 45 days in jail, after driving with a license that was suspended from a prior DUI.

Witnesses inside the coutroom say that the only excuse Paris could come up with was that her rep Elliott Mintz led her to believe her license was valid. When the verdict was read, neither her or her parents were very happy (obviously!). Paris reportedly cried, pleading “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” and the her mother, Kathy Hilton marched up to the judge saying, “I want your autograph. This is pathetic. I can’t believe all the money we spent on this.” Well, no wonder Paris thinks money can solve everything.

So, what will prison life be like for Paris? Honestly, I think she’ll be just fine. If Martha Stewart can survive, so can she…I guess. And I’m sure she’ll come out with a lucrative book deal and probably even a movie deal. Her sentence starts on June 5th and she’ll be serving 45 days at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California (which is just minutes away from Compton).

ETA: She was 10 minutes late to the trial.

And just to set things straight, I’m NOT taking happy about this because of someone elses pain (part of me kind of feels sorry for her), but I AM happy that an example is being made. Remember that video where Stavros crashed Paris’ car into the back of a truck and was obviously intoxicated? And the police let him go? Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.
