I've admired Paris only for her money: She's not that pretty, she has no boobs, and she looks down on EVERYBODY. Time for a dose of reality for Paris. Let's hope she learns something from 6-1/2 weeks in the slammer.

I cant beleive the Mother's reaction ... I can completely understand a parent being upset that their child is in trouble with the law and that things can spiral down-hill pretty fast ...

BUT ... what the f^&*$K?

So disrespectful to the Judge and the prosecutor ... the judge should have made an example of Paris and thrown the book at her (Judge's discretion in sentencing) and should have held that SLAG mother in contempt.

These rich a-holes have no respect ... finally ... a 'celebrity' who gets justice.

Read again her lawyer says they will appeal so this slut will never see jail time

Hilton was among a series of witnesses who took the stand during the hearing. She testified she believed her license was initially suspended for 30 days and then she was allowed to drive for work purposes during the next 90 days.

She said that when an officer who stopped her in January made her sign a document stating her license was suspended, she thought he was mistaken and did not actually look at the document.

Also called to the stand was Hilton's spokesman, Elliot Mintz. Hilton and her attorneys characterized Mintz as a liaison betweeen Hilton and her lawyers.

Mintz testified that to his knowledge Hilton did not drive during the 30-day period. He said he then advised her that he believed her license was no longer suspended.

The judge called Mintz's testimony worthless and expressed disbelief at Hilton's lawyers.

"I can't believe that either attorney did not tell her that the suspension had been upheld," the judge said. "She wanted to disregard everything that was said and continue to drive no matter what."

Hilton looked forward and didn't speak to news media as she left court. Her mother looked upset.

One of her attorneys, Howard Weitzman, said he would appeal.

"I'm shocked, I'm surprised and really disheartened in the system that I've worked in for close to 40 years," Weitzman said.

He said the sentence was "uncalled for, inappropriate and bordered on the ludicrous."

"I think she's singled out because of who she is," Weitzman said.

Hilton had arrived at the Metropolitan Courthouse 10 minutes late and ignored screams of photographers as she swept in with her attorneys, mother and father Rick Hilton. Wearing a gray jacket and white shirt over black slacks and with a black headband on, she said nothing and appeared serious.

The celebrity case brought an unusual scene to the austere courthouse south of downtown in a commercial area. As if at a red carpet event, dozens of photographers and reporters lined up at the rear entrance. Yellow police tape substituted for velvet ropes.

Hilton, 26, pleaded no contest in January to reckless driving stemming from a Sept. 7 arrest in Hollywood. Police said she appeared intoxicated and failed a field sobriety test. She had a blood-alcohol level of .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.

On Jan. 15, Hilton was pulled over by California Highway Patrol. Officers informed her that she was driving on a suspended license and she signed a document acknowledging that she was not to drive, according to papers filed in Superior Court.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies stopped Hilton on Feb. 27 and charged her with violating her probation. Police said she was pulled over at about 11 p.m. after authorities saw the car speeding with its headlights off.

Mintz said at the time Hilton wasn't aware her license was suspended. A copy of the document Hilton signed on Jan. 15 was found in the car's glove compartment, court papers say.

What's "pathetic" is that her parents seem more concerned about her going to jail than the fact that their daughter is totally out of control.

The jail sentence is just a symptom of bad parenting and total lack of personal responsibility that they seem to have instilled in Paris.

Wake up and grow up, people...

1. Paris, you are what we all aspire to be; rich, famous, and free. You are the epiphany of all our dreams. You do as you please 24 hours a day. Most of us are prisoners to our daily grind. We support you Paris because you bring glamour and excitement to our otherwise mundane lives. Some suffer from extreme jealousy, that is why some attack you. Thank you for letting us live vicariously thru you. Good luck.

THE JUDGE SHOULD HAVE HELD HER IN CONTEMPT AND SLAPPED HER WITH A HEFTY FINE. THAT IS NO WAY TO ACT IN A COURT OF LAW. THE RICH AND FAMOUS FEEL THEY ARE ABOVE THE LAW. AND THINK THEY CAN AWAY WITH OTHERS CANNOT. I HOPE YOU CAN TALK SOME SENSE TO YOUR DAUGHTER, BEFORE SHE KILLS SOME INNOCENT CHILD OR ADULT.
