Paris Hilton’s Jail Term Is Officially Cut To 23 Days

    More information leaking out about this latest news released today by the Associated Press.

    Paris HiltonParis Hilton will serve about half of her 45-day jail sentence and will be separated from the general inmate population, authorities said Wednesday.

    The hotel heiress will spend about 23 days in a “special needs housing unit” at the Century Regional Detention Center in suburban Lynwood, Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said.

    Her sentence was shortened after jail officials gave her credit for good behavior, Whitmore said. Officials considered several factors in calculating the credit, including that she appeared for her latest court date, he said.

    Hilton will stay in a unit that contains 12 two-person cells reserved for police officers, public officials, celebrities and other high-profile inmates, he said.

    Like everyone else in the 2,200-inmate facility, Hilton will get at least an hour outside her cell each day to shower, watch television, participate in outdoor recreation or talk on the telephone, he said.

    The 26-year-old socialite was sentenced to jail this month for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case. A judge ordered her to report to jail by June 5.

    A call to her lawyer, DUI specialist Richard Hutton, was not immediately returned. Her publicist, Elliot Mintz, declined to comment.

    This is proof that the evil judge’s sentence was irrational. That discriminating judge, Michael T(yrant). Sauer, should be chased away from the judicial system!

    With the pending appeal, she perhaps could reduce it even more? But bye-bye to the crazy number 45.

    She will now serve for about 3 weeks, which is still a lot. It should be about a week or less in my opinion.

    Paris Hilton Will Spend At Least 23 Days In Jail

    LATEST

    – L.A. Sheriff’s Department officials: Paris will be separated from the general inmate population.
    – Paparazzi and tabloid outlets will not be allowed to infiltrate the facility.
    – Whitmore: Paris is owed time off for good behavior.
    – Paris is hoping to appeal the sentence; she considers it too harsh.

    Paris Hilton will spend at least 23 days behind bars for violating the terms of her probation but will be separated from the general inmate population, L.A. Sheriff’s Department officials said today.

    The final decision, made by jailers today after reviewing her case file, is significantly less than the 45 days she was sentenced to serve this month but more than other celebrities have served for similar misdeeds.

    L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said jailers have decided that because of her fame, Hilton will be kept off limits from the rest of the inmates at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood. Rather, she will live in the “special needs housing unit” reserved for police officers, public officials, celebrity and other high-profile inmates. The unit contains 12 two-person cells.

    The department also warned paparazzi and tabloid outlets against trying to infiltrate the facility for what is expected to be much-wanted photos of Hilton behind bars.

    “This is not an e-ticket ride at Disneyland. This is a serious matter,” Whitmore said. “Anyone who takes advantage of this situation will face appropriate consequences.”

    Whitmore insisted that the department is treating Hilton like any other inmate, saying she is owed time off for good behavior.

    “She will do fine if she follows the rules,” he said.

    Hilton pleaded no contest to driving under the influence after she was pulled over in Hollywood on Sept. 7 by Los Angeles Police Department officers for speeding and making an illegal left turn. After she failed a field sobriety test, Hilton had her license suspended but continued to drive, violating the terms of her probation. She was pulled over three times during the period of her suspension.

    Hilton has said she will appeal the sentence, which she said was too harsh.

    Paris Hilton Is Officially Single Again

    Josh Henderson is much more easygoing. “I love games like this one, where you can play against friends or online,” he says of Halo 3, which debuts to audiences worldwide today via Xbox Live. “I’m very competitive.” That trait must have been what helped him win over Paris Hilton for the short time they were an item.

    “We’re friends,” he says of the heiress. “Her world is so crazy right now. I’m just trying to give her my thoughts and wish her the best. It’s a tough time for her. And for me, I’m just trying to focus on my work and finish my music.” That’s right, Josh, you’re young, and you should  think of yourself and complete that album you’ve been working on for three years now.

    Moments later, guess who walks in? That’s right, Miss Hilton. She sneaks through the side entrance with sister Nicky to avoid the reporters out front. At first, she and Josh ignore each other. Paris flaunts around man land in a summery spaghetti-strap dress that probably won’t see the light of day come June 5.

    Then, just after she dodges the 16th camera man at the party, it happens: She scouts out Josh. The two talk for a while in front of a gawking crowd, but there’s none of the so-sweet-it-makes-you-sick PDA they displayed last month.

    Looks like for the first time ever, Paris has more serious things to worry about than boys.

    Tommy Chong: “Free Paris Hilton”

    TMZ has obtained video of stoner icon Tommy Chong giving his view on the Paris Hilton situation, and what she might expect once behind bars in County Jail. Mr. “Those pipes are for tobacco” would know!

    Chong offers some pithy advice for the wayward Miss H.

    A socialite needs her mentors.

    Why do they always interview clueless people like this guy…

    Paris Hilton Wants An Ice Cream

    It wasn’t Stavros or James Blunt on Paris’ brain yesterday — apparently it was ice cream! During her leisurely cycle down the Venice Beach bike path, Paris stopped at an ice cream stand but her trainer seems to have talked out of getting anything. But later on, after a quick stop at the art supply store (DIY, Paris!), she couldn’t resist some Pinkberry!

    Kathy Hilton To Fans: Learn From Paris

    Kathy Hilton has contacted veteran journalist Barbara Walters with a statement about her daughter Paris’ recent prison sentence.

    “We can only hope that something positive can come from all of this,” Kathy told Barbara. “Hopefully young people who look up to people like Paris can learn from this.”

    Walters revealed the statement on this morning’s “The View.” She said she spoke with Paris’ mother last night during a private phone call. Walters added that parents are not responsible for what their children do and said Kathy Hilton is a great mother.

    Last week a judge sentenced Paris to 45 days in jail for violating her DUI probation by driving on a suspended license, twice.

    Funny lady Kathy Griffin was also on “The View” Wednesday as a guest panelist, and suggested that Kathy Hilton’s statement should have said, “Don’t look up to my daughter.”

    Conservative panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck also weighed in on the topic, saying Kathy Hilton should have disciplined her children before the system had to.

    NBC

    Forget what others told Barbara. I’ve already noticed the only person in this “View” group who understands the Hiltons is Barbar. The rest of them don’t even know what they talk about. They always reply negatively, always. And I’m serious about this.

    Paris Hilton Continues To Live The Simple Life!

    So I did this interview for a German entertainment news show the other day and they asked me if I thought Paris was cleaning up her act after receiving a 45-day jail sentence — well, if ditching the push-up bra, going to church, and riding a bike is any indication, yes! When have you ever seen Paris exercise before all this went down — hardly ever! And really, folks, a purse on her shoulder as she cycles her way down Venice Beach?! — This is obviously not second nature for her.

    Anyway, if there’s one thing Paris is familiar with, it’s giving our snappers a damn good photo op so just check out more pix after the jump …
