Prosecutors said Wednesday they will not file charges against Paris Hilton stemming from a scrape at a newsstand in which she allegedly pocketed a copy of her homemade sex video without paying.
The county district attorney's office dropped the case for lack of evidence after investigating the hotel heiress for suspicion of petty theft.
"The evidence presented is not of such convincing force that a reasonable and objective jury would unanimously agree that the suspect is guilty," said Irene Wakabayashi of the district attorney's office. The investigation stemmed from a Dec. 15 run-in between Hilton and a West Hollywood newsstand dealer, who was selling copies of her infamous video, "One Night in Paris", says ABC News.
The sex tape surfaced in 2003 just before the start of Hilton’s reality TV series The Simple Life. She has said she was embarrassed and humiliated that the tape ever became public.
