Paris -- Blame It on the Messenger?

5/9/2007 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Paris Hilton has seen a new lawyer in a desperate attempt to save her ass.

Hilton has already retained famed criminal defense lawyer Howard Weitzman. Yesterday, she met with celeb DUI lawyer Richard Hutton. TMZ spotted Hilton bawling as she drove away Hutton's office Tuesday afternoon, with mom Kathy driving -- and consoling -- her daughter.

Hilton is in a true pickle and it seems she's throwing a Hail Mary by going to Hutton, hoping she can convince the courts she shouldn't serve 45 days in the pokey. This could be the most expensive DUI case ever.

Hey COWARD KILLER STERN,

Get your facts straight. Oh yes folks go to jail for much less than that!! My daughter didn't pay a traffic ticket for an expired tag, a TRAFFIC TICKET!!!!, and her ass went to jail and she has no prior record.

Paris drove DRUNK and even after she got a DUI she drove again with no respect for the law and is claiming ignorance. If she would've have killed YOU or a family member of yours while under the influence, I think you'd change your tune. It makes no different who the person is and their status, SHE BROKE THE LAW multiple times. PERIOD.

There's just something refreshing about seeing someone so spoiled being held accountable just like the rest of us.

Forget that Paris is famous for being famous. Put your personal jealousy/disgust about her lifestyle aside. Sentencing for a probation violation is a subjective issue. Therefore, if she did not demonstrate to the judge that she truly appreciates the nature of the allegations against her (before being sentenced to jail), then the judge appropriately gave her what she deserved for this particular crime. If everyone received a "freebie", as her invocation of President Nixon's pardon (predicated upon serious constitutional concerns) would have us believe, then our world would be a truly more frightening place to live than it already is. Ms. Hilton's mother, by the way, is not doing her daughter any favors by lambasting the judge and the judicial process by so unapologetically arguing that her daughter's actions should have no consequences. The legal system is the great equalizer, and it would indeed be a moral crime if anyone put a resourceful and wealthy socialite's status above those others among us who come into contact with the judicial system from time to time. If she gets a pass, then under what authority can law enforcement punish a first time drug dealer who is trying to work his or her way out of poverty? Clearly punishment is appropriate in both instances, unless some dangerous celebrity precedent is set for someone with resources to avoid necessarily breaking the law (hire a chauffer).

law is equal to all, she's no big fish, she's done it twice she'll do it again....she should learn by going to prison....she could kill any number of ppl driving drunk or under the influence....she should be punished to her acts......she is too wild and needs to reigned....who cares if she is rich and famous.......I think 45 days punishment is too lenient for her to learn these spoilt brats never learn from their mistakes...if she'd she would've never driven on suspended licence inthe first place....how can she drive the car with a suspended licence??? she needs to goto jail, there's no way out....... law is the law.

What a difference from that smarmy, disrespectful ,wiseass we've seen on "The Simpleton Life". Now the jokes on her.

If she held her head up and said, "I'm responsible for this and will do my time" then her stock would have gone up. Now she's just a typical finger pointing spoiled rich c**t. I notice we haven't seen much of her sister.

I love TMZ!    

Dry it up! These people are pathetic. They have their windows rolled down for the world to see her crying. No sympathy here. She could have killed an innocent person while she was drinking and driving.
