Y’all read this excerpt from a story in Yahoo! News:
"Shortly before noon, Hilton issued a statement through her attorney.
“I want to thank the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and staff of the Century Regional Detention Center for treating me fairly and professionally,” she said. “I am going to serve the remaining 40 days of my sentence. I have learned a great deal from this ordeal and hope that others have learned from my mistakes.”
Hilton’s path to jail began Sept. 7, when she failed a sobriety test after police saw her weaving down a street in her Mercedes-Benz on what she said was a late-night run to a hamburger stand.
She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to 36 months’ probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines.
In the months that followed she was stopped twice by officers who discovered her driving on a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Sauer’s courtroom, where he sentenced her to jail."
In other words, all she had to do was violate probation once, go to jail a few days, and then sit at home watching TV for 40 more. I think that if she’s not going to go back to jail like they’re talking about doing, then after her house arrest is complete, she should be sentenced to the remainder of her probation time in community service and still take the alcohol classes. (I assume she has already paid the fine; God knows she has the money for that!) I think the best community service in this situation would be for S.A.D.D. or M.A.D.D. (Students / Mothers Against Drunk Driving.) If she really wants to put her money where her mouth is, then this is what I think she should do. (She said she wanted others to learn from her mistakes; here’s a way to do it.)
I just had to get that out, y’all!
