Kiefer Could Face Bigtime Jail Time

9/25/2007 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Keifer SutherlandKiefer Sutherland is in deep you-know-what.

In November, 2004, Kiefer was popped for driving with a .22 blood alcohol level, and plead no contest to drunk driving. He was placed on 5 years probation. That means if he's convicted on this morning's DUI, he will have violated his probation.

Now here's where the news gets worse: Guess who the judge was in the 2004 case? That would be Judge Michael Sauer, the guy who threw the book at Paris Hilton for violating her probation. And remember, Paris was not drunk when she was driving on a suspended license -- and she was sentenced to 45 days in jail!

Stay tuned.

Pleeeeeeeze. do not compare jack Bower to Paris Hilton. I do think he should hire a driver. I think though people do care what happens to Keifer. I hope he gets well and stays that way.
Paris Hilton? Who cares what happens to that idiot.....

So Lindsay Lohan has 2 DUIs within a two month span, and that twit only gets one day? Just don't drink and drive plain and simple. Sutherland will probably do some credible time, but the other stars don't get crap done to them.

Pleading no contest to a DUI is the same thing as a conviction. Five years probaiton is five years probation, and it looks like Mr. Sutherland is in trouble for violating it if he's convicted again, which looks like what will happen.

And TMZ, stop tying to "white wash" what Hilton did. Here's what led up to her jail sentence:

The judge sentenced her as a result of a sequence of events: 1) Reckless driving due to alcohol, 2) caught driving on a suspended license; 3) driving a second time on a suspended license at 70 mph in a 35 mph zone with her lights turned off, plus violating her probation for the reckless driving due to alcohol, 4) violating the other terms of her probation, and 5) refusing to take responsibility for her actions in front of the judge.

Get Real    

For all of you out-of-towners, non-drivers or non-partyers for that matter who feel entitled to call someone a drunk b/c they recv'd a DUI, consider this: It's really easy to get one in Los Angeles as one of the first questions cops ask when they pull you over (like for a u-turn) is whether you've been drinking. And you don't have to be an alcoholic to have one too many at party. True, it's bad judgment, but such an easy mistake to make.

Almost all stars are crooks. They're a gang of thugs such as Mickey Rourke, Charley Sheens, Mel Gibson and a host of others. There are very few celebs who haven't broken some laws. Celebrities are criminals, period!

Forget about the fact that he's got a drinking problem and has only been "caught" driving very drunk 4 times. The real danger is he could kill someone other than his stupid ass self. He should play Russian Roulette at home.

Come on folks your comments are so mundane and shallow what do you say to the comlete idiot that asks why we don't have sympathy for people that screw up. So you get toasted and kill one of my 7 kids becuase you were too flippin lazy to take a cab or to dring responsbily. GROW UP FOLKS! I love 24 and if I were judge I'd throw the SOB in jail for 5 years, (at least my kids would have a better chance next time he comes barreling down the road after a 12 pack and a few whities)

Dear Mike.

No, there is no compassion for drunk drivers. You ever heard of MADD ? Do you know the name of the mom who lost her daughter to a drunk that ran her down like a dog and got NO, I repeat NO jail time the 3 previous times he was arrested for DUI , BEFORE he killed Candy Lighteners daughter ? Then again, he was not a big hollywood type either, so go figure. I don't go driving around drunk, because I am always the designated driver. ( It's more fun to watch people be drunk, than be drunk with them ) Why do you have compassion ? Why do you sit there and DEFEND someone who got lucky they did not injure or kill someone ? Sit in at a MADD meeting sometime. Visit GROWW.org and visit with people affected for a lifetime over a DUI "mistake" as you call it. Try that. Oh right, that's too real. That never really happens, it's just a mistake, a bad choice in behavior. No one was hurt ( this time ) You'd have to get out of your lazyboy recliner and put down the remote from watching 24 right ? People don't really get hurt by drunk drivers in your world; Obviously.

What about the fact that DUI is a felony in Canada. He will not be welcome in his own homeland.
