LawFuel.com – Reuters report that Paris Hilton has described her 45-day jail term for a driving related offense as cruel and unwarranted.
In her first public comments since a prison sentence, celebrity heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton was visibly shocked and tearful, Hilton was sentenced on Friday to 45 days in jail after a judge ruled she knowingly violated her probation on a previous traffic offense by driving without a valid license.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer rejected the 26-year-old socialite’s defense that she didn’t realize her license was suspended and ordered her to report to a county detention facility on June 5.
“I told the truth,” Hilton told photographers waiting outside her Los Angeles home on Saturday night.
“I feel that I was treated unfairly and that the sentence is both cruel and unwarranted. I don’t deserve this.”List your legal jobs on the LawFuel Network
