Paris Hilton at Gibson Amphitheatre - Sunday 3rd June 2007

HILTON BEGINS JAIL TERM Socialite PARIS HILTON has begun her 23-day jail term early after turning herself in to Los Angeles Sheriff authorities last night (03Jun07). The star, who was expected to start her time in jail tomorrow (05Jun07), was driven to the city's Men's Central Jail to surrender to the L.A. County Sheriff - miles away from the Century Regional Detention Center where she will serve her sentence - in a bid to avoid the paparazzi. Earlier in the evening, Hilton attended the MTV Movie Awards where she admitted she was "scared but being strong" as she faced her jail term for violating her probation following a 2006 drink-driving arrest. The star rushed to her parents home after the ceremony, before being driven to downtown L.A. by her lawyer Richard Hutton to turn herself in to the authorities - accompanied by mum Kathy and sister Nicky. The hotel heiress will spend 23 days in the Lynwood jail, where she will spend 23 hours out of 24 in solitary confinement. Hilton will be allowed to shower, watch TV and use a phone during the one hour break from her cell. In a statement released by Hutton, Hilton says, "I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation. During the past few weeks, I have had a lot of time to think and have come to realise I made some mistakes. "This is an important point in my life and I need to take responsibility for my actions. In the future, I plan on taking more of an active role in the decisions I make. I want to thank my family, friends and fans for their continued support. Although I am scared, I am ready to begin my jail sentence." (JC/WNWCMZ/LJ) Paris Hilton MTV Movie Awards 2007 at the Gibson Ampitheater - Arrivals Los Angeles, California - 03.06.07 (2 images)
