Paris Hilton to spend 45 days behind bars!

Paris Hilton to spend 45 days behind bars!
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge sentenced socialite Paris Hilton to 45 days in jail on May 4, for violating her probation.

Hilton was put on probation after an alcohol related reckless driving offence earlier this year.

Judge Michael Sauer strictly cast off Hilton's defence that she was misinformed about her license status and ordered the 26-year-old to report to a county detention facility on June 5.

Hilton told the judge she was very sorry and that she would "pay complete attention to everything" from now on.

"I'm very sorry and from now on I'm going to pay complete attention to everything. I'm sorry and I did not do it on purpose at all,” the BBC quoted Hilton, as stating in the courtroom.

Hilton's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, said he would appeal "to modify the sentence."

"To sentence Paris Hilton to jail is uncalled for, inappropriate and ludicrous. She was singled out for who she is. She's been selectively targeted. Paris was honest in her testimony. We plan to appeal. Shame on the system," Weitzman said.

Hilton was given three years probation earlier this year for pleading no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving after a September 2006 arrest in Hollywood.

She landed in hot water again in late February, when she was pulled over in West Hollywood for driving without headlights. Police confiscated her car, a $190,000 blue Bentley, when they discovered she was driving on a suspended license.

If Hilton fails to report to jail on June 5, she will have to face 90 days behind bars.

Why should not Paris be jailed for violating her probation from a alcohol related offense. She is plenty old enough to understand the terms of her probation and we all know we loose our priviledge of a drivers license when we get busted drinking and driving. If I was the judge I wouldn't have listened to her teary sorry's either, it's her type that kill innocent people, make her sit for a year! 45 Days for violation and the rest for lying.
