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.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

I do not get our laws for the rich and famous, but I do not our laws for non-rich and famous s either. Child molestors get off usually with a handshake.

I believe that the sentence has to fit theperson since our judicial system is one of pick and choose and lotto anyway.

Why even bother to do the paper work for Nicole for this ridculous sentence. Nicole Richie, next paparrazi gig will be enterting and leaving Lynwood . Check out her designer clohtes. Oh what will she wear. Maybe she will go with coutre for this occassion.

What Should Her Sentence Be?
the next months of her pregnancy helping, assiting those troubled young mothers at places and batterted women's shelters, something like that.
Okay, not hat, then a huge fine to the county which of course Lionel would pay without blinking an eye.

Green eyes may not be contacts after all. When there is a race mix, the eyes comes out green.

Yeah, it's a shame a baby has to be given to a skank like Nicole, but once it is born, she will have nannies and caretakers galore for the unlucky tyke so she can keep partying and the baby will probably only come into contact with its skank mother every few weeks or so.

#6: Isn't 4 days equal to 96hrs? It is where I live, anyway. Secondly, she only has to serve 90hrs because she is being credited for the 6 already served. Are there still 7 days in a week, or did that change too?

Can chose her own jail? Can show up in the evening and it's counts as an entire day? Enough said.

No wonder these people NEVER learn their lesson. They go in & out of prison and they do on rehab...this is complete JOKE for them & for us. They are probably LAUGHING their ass off at our judicial system since they MANIPULATE it so well...after all they have all the MONEY in the world (so they say) and that is what REALLY matters.

What about the late night admission policy?
Is that available for everyone?

And since her sentence was 90 hours - how can late night admission count as one day?
Again, does that policy work for everyone?

And the choice of jail.... is that choice available for everyone?

And the 60 day window to serve out the sentence .... does everyone get a choice of when is most convenient to serve?

Only two jails in LA take pregnant inmates: Lynwood and Twin Towers. Those are the only two jails with hospitals in them. Even though the judge said Nicole could go to a pay jail, it really wasn't an option for her.

NIcooe will check into Lynwood and into the hospital ward. She will probably never see a cell, but just lay around in a hospital bed.

You know Paris has already told her how to work it.

It seems Nicole has better attorneys than Paris! She commited a way worse crime. Yet she is only doing 4 days(in writing). You GO Nicole!
Paris was a target; Paris was a judges ego boost.

I don't like paris OR nicole (tried watching their show once, but they're just.. well.. idiots). At least Nicole appears to be acting like an adult in this situation, something paris (not to mention her mother) was completely incapable of.
