A new kind of Hilton accomodations for Paris

The Los Angeles Times has this coverage of the tough sentencing love experienced by Paris Hilton today.  Here are highlights:

Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton today was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating her probation in a reckless-driving case.

A Los Angeles judge handed down the sentence after prosecutors contended in a two-hour hearing that Hilton had violated her probation when she was ticketed in late February for driving a blue Bentley Continental GTC on Sunset Boulevard with a suspended license.  Hilton, who said her aides did not tell her she could not drive, and her attorneys argued that it was a mistake and that her action did not warrant a jail sentence.

But Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer rejected Hilton's plea, ordering her to report to Los Angeles County Jail on June 5.  If she doesn't appear, the jail the sentence would rise to 90 days.

I suspect that Paris might be able to find the money to get the upgraded accomodations offered in the California jail system.

45 days in jail on a misdemeanor? Crazy.

Let's all just hope that (a) Paris Hilton is not harmed in the pokey and (b) that she doesn't drink and drive again.

The judge ruled out upgraded accomodations in his order, although she will be segregated from the general population in an ordinary jail.
