Survey: 'Hilton Serving More Time Than Average'

Socialite PARIS HILTON will end up spending longer in jail than most inmates locked up for similar offences, according to a survey carried out by the Los Angeles Times. Critics have claimed the 26-year-old is receiving preferential treatment inside - but the results of the survey reveal Hilton will serve more time than 80 per cent of people jailed for similar drink-driving crimes. When the hotel heiress was sent back to jail last Friday (08Jun07), after a judge reversed a decision allowing her to complete her sentence under house arrest, Hilton's lawyer confirmed she would serve the full 23 days behind bars. The Los Angeles Times analysed two million jail releases and found 1,500 cases since July 2002 that involved circumstances similar to Hilton violating her probation on a drink-driving conviction. Of these, researchers found the average sentence was 14 days - nine less than Hilton's - and inmates were released after serving an average four days in jail.
