Paris Hilton May Be Facing Jail Time
Posted on March 30, 2007Paris Hilton is in big trouble -- again. She is now facing the possibility of 90 days in jail. Fed up prosecutors in her DUI case want her probation revoked because she was found to be driving with a suspended license.
A hearing has been set for April 17 for prosecutors to argue that Hilton, 26, violated the terms of her probation by knowingly driving with a suspended license, said Nick Velasquez, a spokesman for the city attorney, Rocky Delgadillo.Apparently, Paris just cannot get it into her pea brain that she is not actually exempt from the laws that everyone else has to follow. We can't even imagine what she would look like after 90 days in jail with no 1) blue contact lenses 2) hair extensions or hair color 3) makeup or 4) high heels. It's a sobering thought. Or, at least it would be, if she had even a tiny bit of a clue.
The hotel heiress and star of the reality TV show "The Simple Life" was sentenced to three years probation in January after pleading no contest -- the equivalent of a guilty plea -- to alcohol-related reckless driving. Five weeks later, police pulled Hilton over again in the city of West Hollywood for driving without headlights and impounded her car, a $190,000 Bentley, when they discovered her license had been suspended, authorities said.
The case was then referred to the City Attorney's Office. At the time, Hilton's spokesman, Elliot Mintz, said his client was not aware that her driving privileges had been curtailed. But prosecutors have since concluded otherwise. "We are confident that we have sufficient evidence to prove that her license was suspended, and that she had knowledge of that suspension," Velasquez said. If found to have breached the terms of her probation, Hilton could be sentenced to up to 90 days in jail, he added.
