Truth sets Paris Hilton free
Paris Hilton pleaded guilty in court on Monday to cocaine possession and obstructing an officer. She received one year of probation, a $2,000 fine and 200 hours of community service. “I was in possession as well as tell an officer that the bag wasn’t my purse,” she told the judge.
The judge explained that a violation of the probation would result to a jail sentence of one year. “Any new arrests terminate your criminal probation and you will serve a one year sentence. The purpose of this is to change your conduct. I’m going to warn you, Ms. Hilton. You’ve now been sentenced to one-year in the Clark County Detention Center. The Clark County Detention Center is not the Waldorf Astoria. Take this seriously, Ms. Hilton,” he said. Paris promised to stay trouble free.
The prosecutor was also satisfied: “Under the circumstances of the case, this is a fair resolution. Our main concern is that Ms. Hilton stay out of trouble over the next year.”
Why did she lie in the first place? According to People Magazine, “at the moment it all came down, she was scared. But since then, she’s had time to think about her actions, and she’s taking this really seriously.”
TMZ also reported that she’s “taking this whole ordeal as a wake up call” to “finally grow up and become a responsible adult.” She reportedly said that she’s “over being a party girl.”
If all goes well, as it should, she won’t have to attend her next scheduled court appearance set for September 20, 2011.
