Hilton’s sentence reduced

Paris HiltonParis Hilton‘s sentence for breaking probation has been reduced from 45 days to 23 days in jail. Despite earlier predictions that Hilton would be in and out within a day, similar to Michelle Rodriguez‘s jail time for a similar conviction, L.A. County sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore said Wednesday, “The Sheriff’s Department is announcing that Ms. Hilton will do a minimum of 23 days in jail. The possibility that she will be processed in and out in a day is over. She will do her full time, minus 22 days because of a state jail policy encouraging good inmate behavior.” Hilton’s good behavior, according to the sheriff’s office, was showing up for her court date. She’s due June 5th to begin serving her sentence in a “Special Needs Unit” for high profile inmates, where the socialite will be kept segregated from the general prison population.

    It is a shame to see anyone sentenced to any jail term for such a simple act.
    I feel the political system is getting out of hand and is sentencing people for whatever. Is it a money thing?
    In every senerial, there are 2 sides to the story then the truth.
    I find in life, people think with their heads instead of their heart. One is oh so fast to blame another and sometimes we see can’t wait to see another suffer.
    I have a friend who’s child was injured by a drunk drive. This 17yr old boy was left in a wheel chair. The parents could have pressed charges but did not. These parents have a greater understanding at a soul level of experienceing and moving on in life.Everyone has a path and each individual has an experience to go through to make them wiser and stronger as he / she travels through life. That is an extremeley deep understanding of what i’m talking about.
    Changing the world starts with yourself. If society did this, the world would change greatly.

    Then why not just empty all the jails and prisons and we can all just move on and forgive. What a crock of sh-t. Peace out

    Paris needs to realize she is not above the law. As an adult, she is responsible for her own actions & needs to stop blaming other people. “Someone else reads her mail? I was told I could drive to work?” Her work consists of going to clubs & parties. They need to finally show these celebraties that we all play by the same rules. How many more chances does she get? What would happen if she did drive after drinking again and she ended up hurting or killing someone. Her team would probably come up with a really good sympathy statement that they would read for her. Paris didn’t learn anything from her friend Nicole getting busted from DUI. What is it going to take?

    I really have no sympathy for Paris at all. Let her go in the same cells as all the other inmates so she sees what life is all about. Sorry but no amount of money can save you this time paris. hope you learn your lesson

    Paris Hilton needs to be made an example of. Her term being shortened is complete crap. If anything, it should have been extended.

    Forgiveness and Peace are good when it’s warranted. Here, a young woman who always managed to ‘dodge’ her lessons with money needs to learn a lesson and I would go as far as her needing to join the ‘every day’ prisoners to do so. The sentence reduction doesn’t worry me really – I am more troubled when you see murderers and rapists walk after only spending little time locked up, free to do their deeds again until caught once more. Let’s just hope, Paris has now learnt her lesson – that she is NOT above the law, no matter how much money she has inherited!

    Money makes the world go around…..

    Those who have money can commit murder and get away with it…..

    Those who don’t get shafted…..

    That’s just the way the world works……

    I think it is time for this young lady to be responsible for her wrong-doings. Forget about Mom & Dad, Paris you need to grow up and as a public figure and heiress of the Hilton name, show the world that you are mature enough to take care of yourself. I hope that her ‘stay in jail’ will make her re-consider how bad she has been behaving and become a better person. Good luck!

    Perhaps she and her old buddie Nicole can do a Simple life episode at the pen, and still make some dough off of it. Hopefully this stint in the slammer will make her appreciate all the perks and money she has. I am sick of seeing that pouty rich girl look she does for the cameras. maybe we don’t have to look at it for a few weeks… wouldn’t that be great

    I think it’s good that Paris Hilton’s going to jail, but what’s the point of going if you’re gonna spend about 3 weeks there? I hate how she acts like if she owns the red carpet whenever she walks down it. I really do hope she learns a lesson.

    I just don’t believe it. It appears you can break the law and walk away with a slap on the wrist, but then we have a similar policy up here where you can serve 2/3 of you sentence and then be released, just for behaving yourself. Paris should of done her full sentence, if not, a good deal of probation, or work release like Boy George did. Anyways, let pray Paris has learned her lesson and applies it to her daily life, the good Lord willing.

    Time off for good behaviour for showing up for her court date?? There are a lot of people serving WAY too much time right now if that is the policy. Good grief.

    That plus the “special needs unit” (for people with more money than brains, I guess) demonstrate clearly that Ms. Hilton is nowhere near receiving the same treatment as others in her situation.

  13. Rudolph Ransom • May 19, 2007 @ 6:52 PM

    Paris doing half her time and going in a seperate cell simply means she’ll be away at day camp for three weeks. God bless America for the law of the Untouchables…!
