Paris Hilton checks into jail: Video, photos

Hour after attending the MTV Awards, Paris Hilton checked into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California. The heiress said she could have gone to a “pay jail” but instead chose to do her time in a public facility because she does not want to be treated differently from anyone else.

She will wear a county-issue jumpsuit for the next 23 days.

Her home will be the “special needs” unit of the women's jail, where she will be separate from most of the other 2,200 inmates.

The unit contains 12 two-person cells reserved for police officers, public officials, celebrities and other high-profile inmates.

Hilton's cell has two bunks, a table, a sink, a toilet and a small window. She does not have a cellmate.

Officials at the jail say Hilton will lead a quiet life for the next several weeks. A facility representative told reporters that the young socialite “will do fine” as long as she follows the rules.

The 28-year-old star of the TV reality show, “The Simple Life” will not be allowed to give any interviews in jail, authorities have said.
