Images of Paris Hilton being arrested to serve out a 23-day sentence are still fresh in everyone’s mind but it seems like there’s no stopping these young celebrities from getting a booking at their local jail. Just a couple of days following Lindsay Lohan’s arrest, Hilton’s co-star in the reality show “The Simple Life” is now facing jail time as well after being sentenced to 90 hours in prison for driving under the influence in December. Richie was apprehended after 911 calls from disgruntled motorists alerted officials that the daughter of famed songwriter Lionel was driving in the wrong direction on a freeway just off Burbank.
Ritchie previously spent six hours and jail, so instead of the original 96 hour sentence (exactly four days), her sentence was reduced to an even 90. Aside from the jail time, Nicole will also have to pay a fine of $2,048. She will also be in probation for the next three years. Superior Court Commissioner Steven K. Lubell added that should Richie be caught driving under the influence again or driving without a license, she will be sentenced to a year in prison.
Despite driving on the wrong side of a relatively fast-moving stream of vehicles, no untoward incidents were reported. No motorists were harmed. It is still unclear where the sentenced will be served out.
With Paris, Lindsay and Nicole getting arrested so close to each other, you’re almost left to wonder why Britney’s still a free woman!
