LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – The city’s top prosecutor’s office got Paris Hilton jailed for violating probation by driving with a suspended license and then condemned her early release, FOX News reports.
On Monday, City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo was the one apologizing for keeping quiet about a 2004 accident in which his wife crashed his city-issued vehicle — while driving on a suspended license.
“I realized that I should have spoken up earlier. That was a mistake,” Delgadillo said at a news conference. “I mishandled the situation and I apologize.”
Delgadillo insisted his wife did not receive any special treatment.
He also said his wife’s violation is not comparable to the Paris Hilton case.
“Paris Hilton was driving drunk, was on a probation … she violated that probation more than once,” he said. “My wife had a suspended license and then she received a ticket. She was never driving drunk.”
