Paris Hilton jailed for 45 days

Paris Hilton jailed for 45 days

The endless party that is Paris Hilton's lifestyle was gate-crashed by the long arm of the law on Friday as the socialite was sentenced to 45-days in prison for a parole violation.

The millionaire heiress to the Hilton hotel empire looked close to tears as she wailed "I'm sorry, I'm sorry" just moments before receiving her sentence at downtown Los Angeles' Metropolitan Court.

Hilton must start her sentence at the Century Regional Detention Facility on 5 June or else serve a 90-day jail term.

Parole violation
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer said he was in no doubt that Hilton knew she had broken her parole by twice driving on a suspended licence following her drink-drive conviction.

"In my opinion, there's no doubt she knew her driver's licence was suspended," Sauer said.

Hilton, who testified that she had been told by her manager that she was allowed to drive, apologised to the judge before sentencing.
