This is really absurd. I mean, who knew that you could get time off for "good behavior" just for showing up to court? Unbelievable.
LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Paris Hilton will serve about half of her 45-day jail sentence and will be separated from the general inmate population, authorities said.
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.
Granted, she still has to do 23 hours a day in lockdown, but for someone who has broken the law repeatedly and who still doesn't accept responsibility for any of her actions, getting time off without even serving a day yet amounts to nothing but utter lunacy. And my guess is that even the leniency shown here still won't be enough for the skank and her team of high-priced lawyers. Next step? The entire sentence gets tossed for community service.
