LOS ANGELES — Paris Hilton will serve a significant portion of her jail sentence.
“Access Hollywood” has learned that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department decided Wednesday that after evaluating the court’s order, Paris must serve her full time.
The least amount of time the heiress will spend in the jail is 23 days if she practices “good time / work time” at the start of her sentence. She can earn a reduction on her sentence by 22 days for good behavior.
Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed the LASD reviewed the judge’s order that Hilton serve 45 days for violating her DUI probation twice, for driving on a suspended license. Based on “the nature of the offense,” “the criminal history — or lack thereof” and a number of other factors, Whitmore said the LASD determined Hilton will do the time and not be released mere hours after she is booked into the jail, as reports have suggested.
“She will do fine if she follows the rules,” he added.
