U.S. hotel heiress and Hollywood socialite Paris Hilton abandoned her appeal of a 45-day jail sentence for violating the terms of her probation, according to court documents submitted here on Thursday.
Hilton filed the papers in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday, indicating she will not appeal the sentence. She earlier said the sentence was unfair and vowed to appeal.
The “Simple Life” reality show star was sentenced earlier this month by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to confinement, with the judge ruling that Hilton violated her probation by driving on a suspended license.
The 26-year-old celebrity was placed on 36 months of probation in January, when she pleaded no contest to an alcohol-related reckless driving charge in Hollywood.
Although she was sentenced to 45 days in county jail, Hilton is expected to only spend about half that long behind bars and serve her time separate from the general inmate population because of her fame, a police spokesman said.
Hilton will spend at least 23 days behind bars, and jail officials have decided to keep her off limits from the rest of the inmates at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, a Los Angeles suburb, said Steven Whitmore of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
