Paris Hilton Sentence May Get Reduced to Three Weeks
Some respite for troubled model Paris Hilton as she may have to serve less than 45 days in county jail. Hilton, who was sentenced last week to serve 45 days imprisonment, could spend three weeks or less behind bars provided she displays good behaviour in jail.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said:
Hilton, sentenced last week to do the time, could spend three weeks or less behind bars because of a state requirement that grants inmates time off for good behavior and because of overcrowding in the system.
Some women inmates, who showed good behaviour during their sentence, have been released after serving only 10 per cent of their total sentence. The other reason for such early release is the overcrowded jails. In a similar case last year actress Michelle Rodriguez, who was sentenced to 60 days in jail for drunken driving in Hawaii, was also releases as the jail was overcrowded.
26-year-old Hilton was awarded 45 days of imprisonment for drunken and reckless driving. Her term of imprisonment would begin on June 5. Though Hilton intends to appeal against her sentence and even her fans are also asking Californias governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to grant her pardon.
