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.

I don't know what the big deal is all about. Anyone else would get jail time...why would she get off? Justice was served and hopefully her arrogant ego will now have a reality check. Just because daddy has money does not mean she is above the law!

You are not above the rest of us who choose to be responsible rather than frivolous, but equal. This experience will remind you of that and hopefully humble you.

45 days sounds good, but with the LA SHERIFF good time policy she might only do 5-7 days. Good try

I really don't care for her, but maybe this will be a wake up call for her... if she really ends up serving the time (money and power still go a long way and she has month to fight this).

At least we won't have much media coverage of her while serves time and perhaps some young folks will realize maybe it's not so cool to be an arogant bitch and drive with DUI's and suspended licenses (can she not afford to ahve somebody cart her around?).
