Accoding to CNN, Paris Hilton will do her full sentence of 23 days because of who she is, not what she did. Other stars like Michelle Rodriguez got by on a few hours of a 60 day sentence because of overcrowding at the Century Regional Detention Facility.
For the crime Hilton committed, if she serves more than a few hours, it will be because the jail wants the notoriety. It would be interesting to find out if they have transferred prisoners out, just so they can keep Hilton.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said, “The situation in the jail will not determine (Hilton’s) release. She has been given a full sentence. She will do her full sentence.”
This jail sentence will make Paris Hilton more famous. The judge (Michael Sauer) and prosecutor (Rocky Delgadillo) will never sleep at one of the 27,000 hotels that the Hiltons own again. So, the world now waits for June 5th to see how Paris Hilton will hold up going to jail.
Paris Hilton can receive mail at the jail:
Paris Hilton 9424185
11705 S. Alameda St
Lynwood, Ca. 90262
Do not send pictures or perishables. All mail is opened by the jail staff.
Items Paris Hilton can have in jail: Standard orange jumpsuit plus supplies from the jail, which includes a toothbrush and toothpaste, bar of soap, a comb, deodorant, shampoo and shaving items, along with a jail-issued pencil, stationery, envelopes and stamps.
She cannot bring in anything, except what she has on to enter. Anything else she wants has to be bought at jail prices, which are outrageous for the common prisoner.
Hilton’s phone calls will have to be made collect, which the jail requires in order to make money on the system. Think about $1 per minute. She will only have one hour per day to do anything outside her cell, so phone calls probably won’t be a huge priority. That hour includes her having to shower.
Hilton can have up to five 4 x 6 pictures. They limit reading materials to up to 3 magazines or books per week. Hopefully they are the size of Moby Dick, or she will probably be bored by the end of day three.
If any harm comes to Paris Hilton while in jail, she can sue. The likelihood is that the jail is not going to place her in a cell with anyone or let her interact with anyone during her 1 hour outside. They may want the notoriety, but they cannot afford bad press.
