Paris Hilton to be in jail in week

Paris Hilton had one last weekend of freedom before going to jail.

The hotel heiress has been ordered to turn herself in by Tuesday to begin serving an approximately three-week sentence for violating her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

As of midday Sunday, the sheriff's inmate locator Web site did not show that Hilton had entered the jail system. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said a statement would be issued after the she was incarcerated.

Though a judge sentenced her to 45 days behind bars, Hilton is expected to serve only 23 days because of a state law that requires shorter sentences for good behavior.

Once she arrives, the "Simple Life" star will be housed in the jail's "special needs" unit.

Hilton's arrival was on the minds of some inmates at the 2,200-bed facility.

Susannah Johnson, who was released Saturday after a one-day stay, said many inmates were angry at Hilton, believing officials were making room for the starlet at the expense of others in crowded conditions.

"The only advice I could give her when she comes is to shut her mouth and do the time," said Johnson, 35.

A call to Hilton's attorney, Howard Weitzman, was not immediately returned Sunday. Her publicist, Elliot Mintz, was reached by e-mail and declined to comment.
