After multiple driving infractions and a charge of driving under the influence, Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail for driving with a suspended license. The hotel heiress had served just three days in jail when Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said she would be allowed to serve the remainder of her sentence under house arrest.
On June 7, 2007, Ms. Hilton returned home. Critics seized on the comforts and luxuries afforded there: three dozen cupcakes sent as a gift from a Beverly Hills bakery, chocolate-covered strawberries and melons, and visits from friends and family.
But her reprieve was short-lived. The next day, a judge ordered Hilton back to jail, saying her sentence had not made provisions for house arrest or electronic monitoring. A tearful Hilton shouted, "It’s not right!" but served out the rest of her sentence in state facilities.
