Paris Hilton has issued a further statement, via TMZ.com website, correction alleged “misinterpretations” about what she has previously said, felt or been represented as having said, about her impending prison sentence.
The so-called “heir head” says she is not above the law, but is only seeking fair treatment after being hit with a 45-day prison term for driving on a suspended licence.
Hilton was given a jail sentence on Friday after being found to have violated her probation for drink-driving by twice taking to the wheel while banned.
“After reading the media’s coverage of my court hearing, I feel the need to correct what I believe are misperceptions about me,” Hilton said, adding she recognised the seriousness of her initial drink-driving charge.
“I absolutely realise how serious driving under the influence is. I could not live with myself if anyone was injured or killed while I was driving while impaired.
Clearly, no one should – no matter how slightly.”
Hilton added that she was ready to be punished for violating probation but only sought equal treatment.
”No one is above the law. I surely am not,” she said.
“I do not expect to be treated better than anyone else who violated probation. However, my hope is that I will not be treated worse.”
