Paris Hilton - Bling Ring Member Sentenced To Probation

A member of Hollywood's notorious 'Bling Ring' gang has been sentenced to three years of probation after allegedly receiving a jacket stolen from Paris Hilton's home.

Courtney Leigh Ames was one of six people charged with snatching more than $3 million (Gbp1.9 million) worth of goods from properties belonging to stars including Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom in 2008 and 2009.

In December (12), she pleaded no contest to one count of accepting stolen property from the socialite in exchange for prosecutors dropping three other charges, including felony residential burglary, and on Friday (01Feb13) she was formally ordered to stay out of trouble until 2016 and complete 60 days of community service.

Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler told Ames, "You caught a break and you know it. This is your chance to straighten out your life."

Hilton declined to seek restitution, reports the Associated Press.

The case has captured the attention of the media, and director Sofia Coppola has even turned the thieving scandal into a new film. The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson and Leslie Mann, is due out later this year (13).
