Nicole

Will Do Time at

Paris' Big House

8/2/2007 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0802_nicole_richie_ex-1TMZ has learned Nicole Richie will do her time at the Lynwood jail -- the place Paris Hilton called home for 23 days.

Richie had the option of serving her 90 hours at a "private jail." These facilities are nicer than Lynwood, for sure, but there's a downside. When an inmate does time at a private facility, they must serve out the entire sentence. At Lynwood, the Sheriff could turn a 4-day sentence into a revolving door, because of the overcrowding problem.

Even if Nicole didn't go in and out, she would do much less than 4 days. She could enter Lynwood late one evening (as Paris did) and she'd get credit for an entire day. On top of that, there's "good time" credit that would shave a significant portion of the sentence.

We're told Nicole's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, notified the Sheriff her client has chosen Lynwood. And Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore confirmed it.

Maybe they can get her baby a check-up in prison, see if it's OK, considering Nicole's drug and booze habit. She doesn't seem concerned, of course, living in fantasyland like she does, so maybe Grandpa Lionel will step in and see that this gets this done..

It says a lot about our society when so many jails are "over crowded".

What a skanky little whore. I hope they spread her ass-checks so far during her strip search that she crumbles in half. Enjoy Nicole! Your baby will come out as undernourished as you are.

she didn't get 4 days, she got 96 hours. I doubt if your sentence is in hours that you can check in at 11:45 and then out at 12:15 and have credit for 2 days. Also, your report is wrong, it is 96 hours, not 90 hours. I guess basic math escapes those who work at TMZ.

#4....I'm glad you took my comments exactly as they were intended. How would you feel if her drugged-up ass killed someone you loved while she was all coked-up? I am so sick of these D-list stars thinking they can do whatever the hell they want, and use their money to stay in a private facility. You bet your ass it is an intense situation.

That was a very informative post.

Does anyone else think that these operational procedures are crazy?

- If you check in at 11:30 PM, you get credit for an entire day
- "good time" credit that shaves-off a significant portion of the sentence
- Possible revolving door because of significant overcrowding

If that is the case, why even sentence anyone since this is a complete joke?

If "jail" is supposed to be either a deterrent or a punishment--and with this procedures that basically eliminate a sentence--does it really work????

locked up. just quite the vivid mental image.
