and Doing Time

6/4/2007 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ was there when Paris Hilton turned herself in to Sheriff's authorities Sunday night.

It didn't go down at the jail. Paris' mega-lawyer, Richard Hutton, picked her up at her parents' house at 10:30 PM. Hilton, Hutton, mom Kathy and sister Nicky then drove to the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles -- commonly referred to as the Twin Towers -- where Paris officially surrendered to the L.A. County Sheriff to begin her 23-day sentence.

The Sheriff devised the plan of surrendering miles away from the actual site where Paris will be doing time, because the crush of paparazzi at the jail created a potential safety hazard.

Paris was then driven to the jail in Lynwood, where she is now serving her sentence.

Paris Hilton: Click to watchEarlier in the evening, Hilton left her house for the MTV Movie Awards. After appearing on the red carpet, Hilton went to her parents' house for a brief time, then left with her lawyer to face the music.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ the plans for Paris have changed. Although they had pre-screened a woman who was designated her cell mate, for the time being, Hilton will be in solitary 23 out of 24 hours every day. The one hour that she's out, she's not really out. Hilton will be allowed to shower, use a phone and watch TV in a small pod adjacent to her cell.

Paris' lawyer just released a statement to TMZ from Hilton: "I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation. During the past few weeks, I have had a lot of time to think and have come to realize I made some mistakes."

Hilton added, "This is an important point in my life and I need to take responsibility for my actions.
In the future, I plan on taking more of an active role in the decisions I make. I want to thank my family, friends and fans for their continued support. Although I am scared, I am ready to begin my jail sentence."

why does Paris have fans?    

What's sad about the people defending Paris here is that these are the people she makes fun of and calls names. The poor, ugly, public school educated, etc.... Why would you want to defend someone who doesn't think you're good enough to be in the same room with them?

Paris is an illiterate high school drop out. Have you ever tried to read something she wrote? She can't spell simple words taught in elementry school. If she hadn't inherited money, she would be working in fast food or hooking. And now she's just another high school drop out with a prison record.

Jen, what everyone is responding to is Paris's holier-then-thou attitude, negative behavior, and EXPECTED entitlement and treatment. She's only a person, no better, no worse,...except in her OWN eyes.

This D.O.T.H. person is losing it. Like posting in all "CAPS" make her words more valid. I can see why they are a Paris fan, though, - mutual idiocy.

You all will burn in hell for your hatred you hold in your souls. Jesus forgives. Judge not lest thou not be judged. Read the bible, fools. Satan is saving a special spot in hell for all of you haters.

Defender of the heiress

Hopefully Paris will be saved from an early death if she takes this jail stint seriously. Linds, Brit, Paris... all headed for an early grave unless they snap out of it and take some responsibility. Quit enabling and check into reality.

By the way, your email rantto MTV sounds embarrassing--were you fired?

Ok Don't understand how Paris went from being sentenced for 45 days in jail to only having to serve 23........A sentence is a sentence and I am sick of these prissy, cry baby, think there better than us brats getting special treatment.

If it had been any normal person that had violated probation, they would have gone to jail that day, none of this get your affairs in order bs.

It's time we start holding these people to the same standards that we "less popular" people must endure. WE are the ones that face the reality of the laws more so than the celebrities.

Enough is enough, we are sending a message to our children that if your rich and popular, you don't have to follow the rules because money and popularity will get you out in the end. This is the wrong message.
