Paris Hilton Faces Jail Time!
The hotel heiress will appear in Los Angeles Superior Court today (04.05.07) where prosecutors are set to argue she be jailed for 45 days for driving with a suspended license.
In documents filed on Monday (31.04.07), lawyer Rockard J Delgadillo also insists he wants the 25-year-old socialite to abstain from alcohol for 90 days and wear a secure continuous remote alcohol monitoring (SCRAM) device.
The device would alert the police as soon as an alcoholic beverage passes Paris' lips.
Delgadillo claims Paris refused to follow a court order for her to attend an alcohol education programme, and is demanding her £120,000 Bentley be impounded for good measure.
The hotel heiress pleaded no contest to reckless driving in January and was placed on 36 months probation and ordered to pay fines.
But in March she was stopped by police for driving in West Hollywood without her headlights on and was found to be driving with a suspended driver's licence
Prosecutors insisted: "These violations demonstrate Hilton's disregard for the vehicle laws of this state."
