For many people, a 45-day jail sentence would be a wakeup call to act more responsibly. (For alot of us, the first warning would have been enough.) For Paris Hilton it seems it's just another chance to shift the blame.
In her first public comments since she was handed a 45-day jail sentence for a driving related offense, celebrity heiress Paris Hilton has described her punishment as cruel and unwarranted.
She also fired her spokesman, veteran publicist Elliot Mintz, whom she blamed for getting her into the mess.
Whether or not he perjured himself by testifying that he gave her misinformation is between him and his conscience...I would have included Paris and her conscience too but I'm not sure she has one. She is the one who drove after drinking, she is the one who drove at night without headlights, she is the one who was driving without license plates on her car, and she is the one who failed to attend the court-ordered alcohol education program. She received a warning, signed it, and stuck it in her glove compartment. If she truly believed that her publicist was right (again, assuming their testimonies were truthful) that she was allowed limited driving and the police department was wrong, shouldn't the first thing she should have done was to call her lawyers and have them clear up the problem?Posted by marybeth at May 7, 2007 05:05 PM Box of Rocks
