As if it’s not enough that the woman has inflicted “House of Wax” on the populace with nary a legal repercussion made against her for that heinous offense, Paris Hilton recently pleaded no contest to a lesser offense than the DUI for which she was originally charged after she was driving drunk. CNN reports:
Paris Hilton was placed on 36 months probation and ordered to pay fines after pleading no contest Monday to alcohol-related reckless driving, a reduction of an original charge of driving under the influence. Hilton, 25, did not appear in court. The plea was entered by her attorneys Howard Weitzman and Shawn Chapman Holley, the city attorney’s office said. Judge Michael Sauer also ordered her to attend an alcohol rehabilitation program and imposed other conditions. He gave her the option of reducing her probation to 24 months if she completed 40 hours of community service. No immediate decision was made on that option. The fines, plus penalty assessments, totaled about $1,500.
I still can’t get over how wonderfully implausible that whole “I was on my way to eat something” excuse is. I would have been more inclined to believe that she was told by Dennis Hopper that if her car went under 80 mph, her old nose would grow back.
