What Paris can expect behind bars

Paris Hilton better like chicken

The hotel heiress was sentenced Friday to 45 days at the Century Regional Detention Center, Los Angeles County’s jailhouse for women just south of downtown in Lynwood.

Inmates get three low-sodium meals a day, with dinner the only hot meal. Beef and pork aren’t permitted _ “it’s all poultry-based,” said Capt. Alice Scott, who oversees the 2,200-inmate facility she describes as “a very nice place.”

Like other high-profile Los Angeles County inmates _ O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, Robert Mitchum, Sirhan Sirhan and Charles Manson _ Hilton will be segregated from the general population for her own safety, living in a one- or two-person cell.

Her cell will be Spartan: 12-by-8 feet with a toilet, sink and a window 6 inches wide. She’ll comb her blonde locks in a mirror made of polished metal.

Breakfast is served between 6 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., hours when Hilton sometimes gets in after a night of partying.

Inmates in segregation are allowed outside their cells for at least an hour each day to shower, watch television in the day room, participate in outdoor recreation or talk on the telephone, Scott said. There are a bank of phones that use prepaid phone cards _ cellular telephones and Blackberries aren’t allowed.

There have been other celebrities at the women’s jail. Actress Daryl Hannah, arrested last year for failing to leave a 14-acre inner-city garden where farmers were being evicted, spent a few hours there.

A year ago, former “Lost” actress Michelle Rodriguez showed up to serve a 60-day jail sentence for violating probation terms after her drunken driving arrest in Hawaii. She was released in hours because of overcrowding.

Sometimes stars are allowed to do their time in a jail of their choosing. In such cases celebrities pay a daily room-and-board fee to the smaller jails, which afford them more privacy and comfort.

Sean Penn found a jail in Bridgeport, a remote town on the eastern flank of the Sierra, to serve a 60-day sentence in 1987 for fighting with a photographer in violation of his probation for a barroom brawl.

Cop-slapping actress Zsa Zsa Gabor served three days behind bars in 1990 at the El Segundo jail near the Los Angeles International Airport. She paid $85 a day.

But the judge in Hilton’s case wouldn’t allow such an arrangement, so she’ll head to Lynwood on June 5.

MySpace refuses to give out the names of sex predators to Attorney Generals unless they are subpoenaed, citing the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986. “The ECPA prohibits us from disclosing the information they’re seeking without a subpoena

-Tiny Sex Images on Google Get Okay From Court

-Hilton’s Jail Term Cut to About 23 Days

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paris 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. (*well how about that, I thought good behavior was awarded once one was in jail not before but then we all are Hiltons are we?)

-People Can Learn From Paris, Mom Says

NEW YORK (AP) — Kathy Hilton hopes young people will learn from her 26-year-old socialite daughter, Paris, who is facing 45 days in jail for violating her probation.

”We can only hope that something positive will come from all of this. Hopefully, young people who look up to people like Paris will learn from this,” Hilton said in a statement read Wednesday on ABC’s ”The View” by co-host Barbara Walters.

Kathy Hilton called her Tuesday night and offered the statement, Walters said.

”She didn’t say `my child didn’t do it’ or `this is terrible,”’ said Walters, who has an adult daughter. ”She’s saying, `You have to take responsibility.’ I thought it was a very strong and very good statement.”

Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is pregnant with her second child, disagreed.

”You want to discipline your children before the criminal system does,” she said.

Ok now i’ve really got to laugh. Kathy Hilton is wanting people to look up to Paris, cough, cough. I’m sure every mother out there is hoping and wishing their daughter will be just like Paris, a spoiled brat, or shall I say a spoiled rich bitchy brat and her mother is not much better. If I remember right, the day in court when Paris was sentenced her mother cried it was unfair justice and now she is recanting and trying to look like the good mother who is saying everyone should look up to her daughter. Give me a break or am I the only one who thinks this.

Paris Hilton ‘Distraught’ Over Jail Time

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paris Hilton is ”emotionally distraught and traumatized” over her 45-day jail sentence and isn’t capable of testifying in a civil lawsuit against her, the socialite-reality TV star’s psychiatrist said.

Dr. Charles Sophy has been seeing Hilton, 26, for the past eight months and has talked with her several times since her May 4 hearing for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case, according to court papers.

Sophy said Hilton needs time to recover from the shock of receiving jail time before testifying in a civil case brought against her by actress and diamond heiress Zeta Graff.

Messages left with Hilton’s spokesman and lawyer weren’t immediately returned early Tuesday.

In court papers filed Monday, Sophy said Hilton is ”distraught and traumatized as a consequence of the findings at the May 4 hearing … and her fear of incarceration.”

”At this point in time,” he continued, ”Ms. Hilton cannot effectively respond to examination as a witness or provide any significant input into her defense.”

Graff filed a $10 million lawsuit against Hilton in 2005, claiming the reality TV star spread ”vicious lies” about her. Hilton has denied that she was behind a report alleging Graff once tried to grab a necklace worth $4 million from her throat.

Superior Court Judge Linda K. Lefkowitz postponed the trial to August. It had been scheduled to begin this month.

Hilton and her pal Nicole Richie star on ”The Simple Life,” which throws them into everyday situations. After famously feuding and filming their parts separately last season, the celebutantes have reunited as camp counselors for the show’s upcoming installment on the Comcast Corp.-operated E! network.

Paris cont’d……

America’s toughest sheriff” has been turned down

Due to the over crowding of the California jail, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa county Texas offered to avail his jail facility to Paris but strangely enough his offer was turned down.

For those who are not familiar with this sheriff and his facility in Maricopa County Texas he is known for his infamous “tent city” otherwise known as the outdoor jail where the wrongdoers spend their time. They are all also required to wear pink underwear and sock, use pink towels and sheets and a good old bologna sandwich in on the lunch menu every day. Arpaio felt that even though Paris likes pink that since the temp in the daytime can reach in the triple digits he said “that might leave Paris feeling just a bit punky”.

His offer was made due to the overcrowding of the jails and felt that if she were at his facility she would be able to server out the full 45 days rather than only having to spend 2 weeks or less.
