The deal is done and Paris Hilton will NOT be going to jail.
This morning, Paris arrived at a courthouse in Las Vegas to agree to a rather lenient plea bargain after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor charges - drug possession and obstructing a public officer.
For these crimes, she struck a deal that would avoid her going to jail, but would make her pay a $2,000 fine, complete 200 hours of community service and complete an outpatient substance abuse program. The judge was quick to remind her that if she should be arrested for anything else or screws up in any way, it would be mean she would spend a year behind bars without question. The judge also warned Paris that "The Clark County Detention Center is not the Waldorf Astoria."
Ha! These judges are getting all witty now!
Anyway, with her slap on the wrist, she was free to go and sources close to Paris say that this might be the last time we hear of any kind of shenanigans from Paris. She's reportedly telling friends that she is fed up with her "party girl" ways and is giving them up. She's apparently referring to this latest arrest as a "wake up call" and now, wants to "finally grow up and become a responsible adult." She allegedly wants to spend more time volunteering at animal shelters and focusing on her business empire.
Sounds like a good idea to us. Maybe you can share some of this enlightenment with certain other starlet who is facing more jail time!
