Paris was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation for an alcohol-related reckless driving conviction stemming from a September 7 arrest in Hollywood (she had a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent, the legal limit) She was sentenced to 36 months’ probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines. She failed to enroll in the alcohol education program and in January after being pulled over for speeding & for driving with her headlights off, the officers informed her that she was she was driving on a suspended license and she was in turn charged with violating the terms of her probation. Despite the fact her publicist, Elliot Mintz, claimed Paris didn’t know that her license was suspended the document she signed acknowledging her license was suspended was found IN her car during that traffic stop. Prosecutors recommended the 45 days in jail, and any hope that Paris would get in a slap on the wrist got thrown out the window when she arrived 10 minutes late for the hearing today! This is clearly someone who thinks she is ABOVE the law. It is just ridiculous. I can’t even imagine Paris in jail, but I suppose she will just approach it like it is another episode of the Simple Life…albeit a 45 day one…Ouch.
