Press Release: Paris Hilton Goes to Jail
“It's refreshing to see
“This isn't exactly 'Angels with Dirty Faces,' the 1938 crime film in which Jimmy Cagney pretends to be a coward on the way to the electric chair in order to dissuade youngsters from a life of crime, but it's a sign of maturity on Miss Hilton's part that she is actually considering the effect that her behavior is having on others.”
Published reports say Miss Hilton was cooperative, focused and helpful when she turned herself into authorities late in the evening June 3. She is serving three weeks in jail after being convicted of violating her probation when she was arrested for driving on a suspended license.
“Celebrities are not above the law,” said
“Paris Hilton has made more headlines due to her antics than her talent. The media seem to be obsessed with celebrity screw-ups. Now that someone has taken responsibility for her actions, it will be interesting to see how they handle it,” Fyfe said.
