Paris Hilton has officially turned herself over to the police and is now serving her time in jail. Even though the spoiled heiress was able to get her jail time reduced from 45 to 23 days, she could end up serving less than planned.
Reports claim that Paris could be released within the week if she's smart enough to maintain good behavior. Paris will be biding her time at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, south of Los Angeles.
She'll be in her own private area away from general population receiving special treatment for the fact that she's a celebrity. What is she even famous for anyway? Does partying with your daddy's money and releasing a few scandalous tapes qualify you for the title?
She released the following personal statement through her lawyer, which was undoubtedly written by her PR team:
"I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation. During the past few weeks I have had a lot of time to think and have come to realize I made some mistakes. This is an important point in my life and I need to take responsibility for my actions. In the future, I plan on taking more of an active role in the decisions I make. I want to thank my family, friends and fans for their continued support. Although I am scared, I am ready to begin my jail sentence."
Good luck to Paris in jail and I'm sure we'll be seeing her back on the party circuit before the rest of the week is even out!
