Nicole Richie Faces JAIL TIME

Nicole Richie will go to jail if she is convicted of driving under the influence.

'The Simple Life' star - who was charged for the offence on Monday (11.12.06) - has a previous DUI charge and California law states that a repeat offence carries the mandatory sentence of five consecutive days in county jail.

If convicted, Nicole would also have her driving license suspended for one year and be ordered to attend an alcohol education programme for a year-and-a-half, even if the second conviction is not alcohol-related.

Nicole, the adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie, was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning for driving the wrong way along a California freeway.

She admitted to police she had taken the strong painkiller Vicodin and had smoked marijuana.

Nicole was first arrested for DUI in 2002. She told police she had eaten French fries and drunk a shot of vodka.
