Nicole Richie at Ed Sullivan Theatre - Wednesday 6th June 2007

RICHIE SENTENCED TO FOUR DAYS JAIL Troubled socialite Nicole Richie has been sentenced to four days in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence. The 25-year-old was sentenced on Friday morning (27Jul07) in Los Angeles Superior Court, where she was supported by her boyfriend, Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden. Richie was arrested on 11 December (06) when she found driving her Mercedez Benz the wrong way down California State Route 134 highway in Burbank, California. After failing an on-field sobriety test, Richie admitted to having smoked marijuana and taken a vicodin painkiller. In court on Friday, Richie was fined $2,048 (£1,024) and ordered to complete a 21-day alcohol education course. She has also been placed on three years probation. Richie must serve her time in either the City or County Jail before 28 September (07). The Superior Court Commissioner warned Richie she had put lives at risk during the incident and if she drove under the influence again and killed someone, she could be charged with murder - not manslaughter. Richie was previously convicted of driving under the influence in 2003. In recent weeks, Richie has been rumoured to be pregnant with Madden's baby, although neither have confirmed or denied the report.
