A year ago yesterday, heiress Paris Hilton was sentenced in her cocaine bust. She was sentenced to one year of probation, along with a $2,000 fine and 200 hours of community service. In addition to that, Paris also had to attend an intensive substance abuse program.
Because she’s “so against” cocaine, the socialite has completed all of the terms of her deal in the case. Even better, she completed more hours than necessary of the community service, prompting good remarks from the judge.
She pleaded guilty at the time to two misdemeanor charges of drug possession and obstructing an officer, after lying and trying to claim that the purse that had the coke in it wasn’t hers.
Instead of doing her 200 hours as ordered by the court, Paris did 228 hours.
Well, at least she has taken responsibility for her stupid actions, unlike someone else who has made headlines for the same reason. I guess that makes Paris a good criminal? She’s against coke, remember?
So much for that purse not being hers. At least she can walk away from this knowing that she did the crime and paid her price to society. Should Paris have gotten jail time for possession? If that were you or I, we would still be sitting in jail, rotting.
See, I almost got through an entire article not bashing Paris too much. Baby steps, people…baby steps.
