Looks like our favorite celebrity Paris Hilton will be spending some jail time these next few weeks over a driving-related violation. People.com reports.
Paris Hilton on Friday was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation by repeatedly driving with a suspended license.
“[Hilton] disregarded everything … and didn’t care and kept driving,” said Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer.
Paris had been pulled over and arrested for several driving offenses starting September of 2006, first of which was DUI (driving under influence) related. Her license was suspended, and she was then asked to enroll in alcohol education programs by February this year. The charges were brought forth with Paris’ having failed to enroll in such a program and still driving even with a suspended license.
Meanwhile, Paris’ attorney was blaming the system for singling out Paris because of her celebrity status.
“I’m shocked and disappointed at the sentence by the judge,” the hotel heiress’s attorney, Howard Weitzman, said afterwards. “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.”
