Pari$ Hilton Costs L.A. County a Bundle

6/11/2007 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ParisIt costs more than 10 times the normal amount to jail Paris Hilton.

TMZ contacted the Sheriff's Department to determine just how much money the County is spending on Hilton -- and it's way more than it costs to stay at a Hilton!

Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ the average cost per day for a female inmate is $99.64. Paris, well, ain't no bargain. It costs $1,109.78 to keep her locked up. The costs include medical treatment and staff associated with her needs.

By the way, if Hilton were under house arrest, it would cost taxpayers zilch. The inmate shells out the cost of doing time at home.

Bill her for the cost of her incarceration.

Pathetic. She should be treated like any other dirty criminal. She knew what she was in for when she decided to break the law. Spoilt-little-brat girl gets everything she wants, it appears.

She only deserves what anyone else would get. ONE drunk driving doesn't warrant the jail time she's getting. They're making an example of her. Wise up kids. Start learning the laws in your state. Oh, better yet, learn your federal laws!

Hilton needs a staff while in jail? I wonder why all the ads for the Hilton hotels on the tube! Are people boycotting the hotels????
