'The Simple Life' star Paris Hilton's pending jail stint a challenge

UPI News Service, 06/01/2007 

Paris Hilton's incarceration at a California jail is neither a photo-op nor other media event, but a sentence she must serve, law enforcement officials said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said Friday he has ordered his deputies and other workers at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood to make sure no cameras are smuggled into the jail while Hilton is serving a 23-day sentence for violating parole by driving without a license, The Los Angeles Times reported.

"Paying a debt to society should not be an element of her celebrity," Baca said. "Her occupation is publicity, but no one should profit from jail."

The 26-year-old heiress is scheduled to show up Tuesday. Baca said Hilton will not "be seen in handcuffs ... or in the back of a police car, forlorn and in handcuffs."

She will go through the normal intake process, undergoing an interview by jail staff and evaluations for any medical and other needs.

Hilton also won't be giving any TV interviews, Baca said.

The sheriff said Hilton's hyper-media attention puts her "in a class by herself" and she will be kept away from the general jail population.
