Authorities say Paris Hilton may spend far less than 45 days in county jail for violating probation.
LA County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says Hilton could
spend three weeks or less behind bars because of a state requirement that grants inmates time off for good behavior and because of overcrowding in the system that has led to freeing some inmates before they complete their full terms
Whitmore says Hilton's time will be determined when she is booked into the county system. He says she will not receive any favors because she is a celebrity.
Hilton was sentenced to jail last week for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case. A judge ordered her to report to the women's jail in Lynwood by June fifth.
