Paris

Ordered to Serve

45 Days in Jail

5/4/2007 8:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503_paris_fm_ex-1A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has sentenced Paris Hilton to 45 days in L.A. County jail for violating her probation in a reckless driving case. Judge Michael T. Sauer handed down the harsh sentence, telling Paris she will not be allowed work release, furloughs, use of an alternative jail or electronic monitoring in lieu of jail. She must do the time!

An emotional Paris, with tears welling up in her eyes, told the judge moments before the decision "I'm sorry, I'm sorry." Witnesses inside the courtroom say that Paris' parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, were both visibly upset as the sentence was handed down. Kathy, we're told, was especially distraught.

The judge called out her rep Elliot Mintz in court, describing his testimony as "completely worthless." He also told Paris that he did not believe that she was unaware of her license suspension, adding that she had paperwork in her car stating that her license was suspended.

Shortly after the punishment was handed out, defense attorney 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, adding that the sentence was "uncalled for, inappropriate and bordered on the ludicrous. I think she's singled out because of who she is."

Paris will serve her sentence at the Century Regional Detention Facility (CRDF). She will begin her sentence on June 5. If Hilton fails to report on the scheduled date, her sentence will be doubled.

Oh Paris oh Paris, you talentless whore.
We've seen all your secrets, we can't take any more.
You're singing, like the wind, that comes from my ass.
Your acting skills, if any, the epitome of farce.
A role model to many, inspiring shallow ways.
Bill boards above us, to cloud everyday.
As smart as a slug, as sexy as a cheap tart,
You show your ugly meat, you crash your Bentley car.
The poor Hilton name, this is what you've got.
Material, slutty, brainless. Go on say it, That's hot!
The state of the world, has it really come to this.
A no talent, ugly rep of modern day success.
Support the cause, kill that bird.
End this support of the totally absurd.

Now that the courts have treated her equally, will she be sentenced to serve her time in a regular downtown LA Jail or a special facility, minimum security, with carpeted rooms, couch, TV and specialy prepared foods? That will be the true test if she is being treated no differently than the average American.
