  • Arguing that "[p]robation is a privilege and not a right," Los Angeles prosecutors filed this motion to revoke Paris Hilton's probation stemming from her September 27, 2006 DUI charges. Hilton pleaded no contest in January 2007 to reckless driving charges stemming from the incident. A judge sentenced her to 3 years of probation, ordered her mandatory attendance at an alcohol education program, and that she pay fines of $1,500.

    But according to prosecutors, Hilton violated at least three terms of her probation. First, she failed to enroll in an alcohol education course within 21 days of her sentencing.

    Second, she had several traffic violations after receiving probation. On February 27, 2007, she was stopped by L.A. Sheriff Deputies for driving “a new Bentley” at 70 m.p.h. in a 35 m.p.h. zone “in darkness without her headlights on,” and without a valid driver’s license. Hilton’s license had been suspended by California&rsquos; Department of Motor Vehicles in November 2006 for having an "Excessive Blood Alcohol Level.”

    Finally, prosecutors argued, Hilton failed to "obey all laws and orders of the Court," another condition of her probation.

    On May 4, 2007, a judge sentenced Hilton to 45 days in jail for violating the terms of her probation.
