Prosecutors Ask for Jail Time for Paris Hilton

Looks like Paris may be spending some time soon as a guest of the state:

Paris Hilton should be jailed for 45 days for violating terms of her probation for an alcohol-related reckless driving conviction, city prosecutors say. In documents filed April 30th in Superior Court, prosecutors said they also want Hilton to be required to stay away from alcohol for 90 days and wear a monitoring device that will chart whether she complies.

The recommendation will be reviewed by a judge when Hilton appears for a probation violation hearing on Friday.

Hilton pleaded no contest in January to reckless driving stemming from a Sept. 7 arrest in Hollywood. She was sentenced to 36 months probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines.

She was pulled over by California Highway Patrol on Jan. 15. Officers informed Hilton she was driving on a suspended license and she signed a document acknowledging she was not to drive, according to court papers. She was pulled over by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies on Feb. 27 for speeding and driving without her headlights, at which time she was charged with violating her probation.

Hilton’s spokesman, Elliot Mintz, said at the time that she wasn’t aware her license was suspended.

Prosecutors say by signing the document Hilton knew she was not allowed to drive. They also note that as of April 17 she had yet to enroll in the alcohol education program.

“These violations demonstrate Hilton’s disregard for the vehicle laws of this state as well as for the conditions of her probation,” the court filing said. “This court should … include imprisonment as a condition of reinstating her probation.”
