Paris Hilton escapes jail term

She’s a smart cookie, that Paris Hilton (either that, or the lawyers she pays an extraordinary amount of money to do all the thinking for her are); she seems to get caught by police with drugs an awful lot of the time, and always yet avoids getting banged up in the slammer like the hoi polloi would. This time she’s kept herself out of the Lindsay Lohan Memorial Clink by admitting to possession of cocaine and lying to the police, which is a novel twist on things.

The socialite was given a one-year suspended sentence, a $2,000 fine, 200 hours community service and made to complete a substance abuse course, which given that this was the third time this year that she had been arrested for drugs possession, is fairly cushy. We can’t imagine the two grand being much of a problem, that’s for sure.
