Paris Hilton Pleads No Contest to Reduced DUI Charges
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Paris Hilton was placed on 36 months probation and ordered to pay fines after pleading no contest Monday to alcohol-related reckless driving, a reduction of an original charge of driving under the influence.
Hilton, 25, did not appear in court. The plea was entered by her attorneys Howard Weitzman and Shawn Chapman Holley, the city attorney's office said.
Judge Michael Sauer also ordered her to attend an alcohol rehabilitation program and imposed other conditions.
He gave her the option of reducing her probation to 24 months if she completed 40 hours of community service. No immediate decision was made on that option.
