Sheriff: Paris Hilton Is A “Cooperative” Inmate

The disruptions caused by Paris Hilton’s medical problems won’t be held against her and she’s still eligible for early release from jail, a sheriff’s spokesman said Friday.

“Ms. Hilton has been cooperative since her incarceration,” says spokesman Steve Whitmore. “Her good time/work time credit is accruing.”

The 26-year-old heiress is serving a 45-day sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related driving case. With those good behavior credits, the sentence drops to 23 days, putting her on a schedule to be released June 25.

Hilton has been bounced from facility to facility due to an undisclosed medical problem. Most recently, she was transferred to the medical clinic of the women’s jail in Lynwood, Calif., from a downtown Los Angeles jail hospital.

“Her assessment is ongoing,” says Whitmore. “Her condition is still stable.”

The Lynwood jail clinic has six to eight beds – two of them contained in 12-by-15-foot cells. “They’re both currently occupied, one of which by Ms. Hilton,” says Whitmore. “She’s housed alone in the cell.”

“From here,” he adds, “it will be determined by medical staff whether an inmate can be moved back into the original module (cell block) where they were before. I don’t know when that day will be, it’s a day-by-day situation.”

In the meantime, Hilton is allowed outside her cell at least one hour a day, depending on her medical condition. The rest of the time she remains in solitary confinement.

Hilton received one visitor Friday – her lawyer.
