Breaking News: Paris Hilton Drops Appeal
Paris Hilton cancels appeals after she was informed that the Sheriff has agreed to reduce the amount of time she’ll have to serve to 23 days.
UPDATE: Paris’ lawyer has now officially filed a document with the court, abandoning her appeal of the sentence. Documents to follow shortly.
Courthouse sources tell TMZ that Paris Hilton has officially decided to drop her probation violation appeal.
We’re told Hilton’s lawyer had planned to file an appeal at 1:30 PM today in Judge Michael Sauer’s courtroom. Sauer is the one who sentenced Hilton to 45 days in jail.
But we’re told this morning, celeb attorney Richard Hutton had one of his peeps phone the court and say nevermind.
What’s behind all this? Yesterday, Hutton met with Paris and informed her that the Sheriff has agreed to reduce the amount of time she’ll have to serve to 23 days. The Sheriff has also agreed to put her in a celebrity cell, away from the general population.
Apparently, Paris feels her lawyer has gotten her the best break she can possibly get. So the intended appeal will not materialize and Paris will do the time.
