Paris Hilton’s Aunt Avoids Jail In Plea Deal Over Drunken Arrest
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills regular has been offered three years probation, 52 Alcoholics Anonymous classes, and 30 days community labor after refusing to leave the hotel following an altercation in April. Kim Richards, who is Paris Hilton’s aunt, was charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, and battery upon a peace officer, and initially faced a two-and-a-half year jail sentence.
Her lawyer entered a not guilty plea on her behalf in June. Richards, who has a history of substance abuse issues, checked herself into a rehab facility shortly after her arrest. She has also been banned from the Beverly Hills Hotel.
