We get to laugh if the appellate judge decides the current sentence is too lenient and doubles her jail time, right??

Two Paris Hilton headlines enter.

One will leave!

You know, I'm trying to avoid this whole thing but it's like a trainwreck. I just can't look away.

The sad part is that if she wasn't Paris Hilton, she wouldn't be going to jail at all for this minor infraction. The judge is as big a media whore as she is.

Release the Hounds,

From what I understand, she showed up late to court and lied to the judge in court.

Given the attitude I can only imagine that she had in court, I'm not surprised she got the full 45 days.

Most of the time, celebrities don't do dick for jail time so long as they show up on time and be respectful during their trial.

She showed up to her sentencing 20 minutes late. She doesn't think the world applies to her because daddy and his money have always come through for her.

A sentence of jailtime is not unusual in cases like this. However, the sentence is usually dropped down to something like 2 days in jail and the rest in probation. The same will happen here. Then, of course, everyone will whine that she's getting off light because she's a tabloid queen.

Bullshiat. Driving on a suspended while on probation? That s not a minor infraction. That could be 90 days to a year.
 
2007-05-08 10:17:22 AM
There's no way she's going to jail for 45 days for driving on a suspended license. Hilton will be quiet and respectful in court and the second judge will change the punishment to a suspended sentence.

"I feel that I was treated unfairly and that the sentence is both cruel and unwarranted and I don't deserve this," Hilton told photographers

She got one thing right, she hasn't deserved much.

The appeal system shall forever now go like this.. Double or nothing.

She's hot. Subbys woman, not so much.
 
2007-05-08 10:32:06 AM
Good headline.
I have to IMHO that if you think Paris is hot looking, you need to get laid more.
 
2007-05-08 10:33:18 AM
Maybe it's time for Fark to have a "Paris Hilton" tag. Let's just get that out of the way.

+1 on headline.

...for driving on a suspended license.

That was only 1 of her infractions. I think the big strike against her is violating her probation. A judge would have to be a pretty big idiot to simply give her (or anyone who violated probation) more probation. Doesn't mean it won't happen.
 
2007-05-08 10:38:33 AM
I think I can honestly say that none, absolutely NONE of my clients ever went to jail for violating their probation by driving on a suspended license that was suspended due to a misdemeanor DUI. I could usually work something out that got them more community service or had them pay alot more in fines or extended their probation...but, never jail.

Release the Hounds

What good is a celebrity if the masses can't drag them into the filth and piss all over them? I mean...that's the point of those people, right?

Sentencing must vary greatly from state to state then.
 
2007-05-08 10:50:36 AM
Did your clients accept responsibility for their actions, Release the Hounds?

// I can see how that would factor in
 
2007-05-08 10:57:08 AM
My understanding is that when you accept probation you surrender your right to any subsequent appeal, can anyone confirm that?
 
2007-05-08 10:59:39 AM
Sentence her to 45 days and 1000 hours community service. Imagine if she had to pick up dog shiate in the parks. She could also serve chow at the homeless shelters. Changing bedpans at some old folks homes could do her some good too.
 
2007-05-08 11:07:37 AM
My guess is that the judge saw the video of her hitting that parked car, going "Tee-hee" and then just driving off.

I know it's not supposed to have a bearing on the case at hand, but judges are human, and when they see someone who simply hasn't taken responsibility for anything ever or been serious about anything in their lives, they may just want to try and legally smack some sense into them.

A, um, friend of mine got nailed for drunk driving about 8 years ago and also got charged with eluding, obstructing an officer and disorderly conduct. (All while home on leave from the military about 3000 miles away). Anyway he got the eluding dropped to reckless driving and only got sentenced to 9 days in work release. (Of course since work was 3000 miles away he never was able to leave the jail for work. The best part was the military never found out because he was able to schedule a date at his convenience to report to do his time and was thus just able to take leave). All in all I hate Paris, but I think the sentence she received was a tad extreme.
 
2007-05-08 11:30:26 AM
Oh christ, people, you need to be thinking harder... She's a multi-billionaire, she should be offered the choice of 45 days, a flogging in public, or 1 million dollar fine to help the city... or maybe go towards helping people with alcohol problems.

I think her sentence is a tad too strict...but advocating that wealthy people can pay higher fines to avoid jail terms seems a little unfair to me. And by a little unfair I mean ridiculous.
 
2007-05-08 11:36:13 AM
IMHO they should send her to GITMO.
 
2007-05-08 11:37:57 AM
She'll get bail pending appeal, which means she wont have to go to jail until the appeal is finally decided.
 
2007-05-08 11:38:45 AM
If she showed up on time to the hearing, rather than 18 minutes late, she might have gotten off easier.

Isn't that how bonds work? Wealthy people get to pay to be free whereas the poorer people can't do shiat and sit in jail waiting for their trial?
 
2007-05-08 11:52:52 AM
the second judge will change the punishment to a suspended sentence

suspendetta sentence? suspendetta sentence?!
No, for justice, we must go to don Corleone!

Bond, yes. But that has nothing to do with your punishment. In fact when you are ultimately sentenced your punishment is reduced by the amount of time you already served if not out on bail while awaiting trial. So a rich person who pays their bail and is free for a year until sentenced serves the same time in the long run as someone who can't afford bail and sits in jail for a year awaiting the whole trial/sentencing to occur and then receives a year's credit for 'time served'. (If they received the same sentence of course).

i know for a fact that paris will not spend one day in jail
 
2007-05-08 12:02:44 PM
Well, she's rich, she's gonna get benefits from it, someone like her can't survive in a normal prison anyhow...
 
2007-05-08 12:11:44 PM
As much as I would love to see her serve some jail time, I know that it's not gonna happen. Who wants to take bets that she gets off, then gets pulled over and gets another DUI?
 
2007-05-08 12:37:28 PM
Wow, I've heard her wealth vastly overinflated before, but multi-billionaire? Her entire family's not that rich.
 
2007-05-08 12:43:09 PM
She belongs in jail.

Drunk Driving is not a joke.

Could someone please hi-jack these farkin' Paris threads!
 
2007-05-08 12:49:03 PM
"BURN THE WITCH" LOL

Send her away.... boo freaking hoo.... stop complaining just because a bj wouldn't get you out of this one
 
2007-05-08 01:09:36 PM
Perhaps she can film a new reality show while in the hole called something like "The Simple biatch-Slapped Life." It will star Paris and her four cellmates rolling their eyes and showering together while discovering that prison sex really isn't so bad once you get used to the smell coming from the cafeteria. She could make another busload of money and get some hot lesbian prison sex action as well. A hit, I tell you, it would be a major hit.
 
2007-05-08 01:48:48 PM
She won't show up for her prison time. I would bet dollars to doughnuts that she would pull an OJ with a white Bronco or a sports car. She still has the uninformed idea she can escape.

Innocence and immaturity are not the same thing.
 
2007-05-08 02:33:59 PM
What is the basis of the appeal?
 
2007-05-08 03:12:15 PM
+1 for the headline
