LOS ANGELES California
June 26, 2007
Hotel heiress Paris Hilton left jail on Tuesday in red-carpet Hollywood style, waving and smiling to scores of paparazzi, after 22 days for violating probation in a California DUI / reckless driving case.
Several pounds thinner than when she went in, Hilton ran to a waiting sport utility vehicle to hug her mother, Kathy, en route to BelAir.
Hilton, who has vowed to change her party-going ways and give new meaning to her life, was set to give her first after jail interview on Wednesday on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
The incarceration of the 26-year-old multimillionaire, who was placed briefly under house arrest after just three days in jail, sparking an uproar over what many saw as preferential treatment.
Her sentence far exceeded those served by most inmates for similar California DUI / wet reckless probation violations.
