Paris Hilton’s Home Intruder Gets Two-Years In Jail
A man who tried to break in to the home of hotel chain heiress Paris Hilton has been sentenced to two years in prison but could be freed as early as next year, according to judicial sources.
Nathan Lee Parada, 32, tried to break into Hilton’s Los Angeles mansion last August, but she woke up and called the police, who detained him on the spot. He was sentenced on Wednesday.
Hilton, a 30-year-old celebrity socialite, wrote about the incident on Twitter shortly after it happened.
“So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him,” she wrote.
The judge recommended Parada seek counseling during his detention, but as he has already spent 10 months in jail he could be released in little more than a year.
Hilton has had several of her own brushes with the law, and in September pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges for possessing cocaine and lying about it, but avoided jail in a legal deal with authorities.
Last summer she was arrested in South Africa after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup game on suspicion of marijuana possession, but the case was dropped.
In 2007 Hilton spent 23 days of a 45-day sentence in a Los Angeles county jail for a DUI (driving under the influence) charge.
