Nicole Richie spends only an hour in jail

Nicole Richie spend only 82 minutes in jail for her DUI offense, before being released.

Nicole Richie spends only an hour in jail Nicole Richie was sentenced to four days in jail, but due to over-crowding, she was released a little earlier than the 90 hours she was in for. Her sentence came as a result of driving under the influence on the wrong side of the highway in L.A. Richie was already awarded one day time-served for sitting 6 hours in jail. She avoided an year in jail after a plea bargain, as this was Richie's second DUI offense.

 According to the website of the L.A Sheriff’s Department, Nicole Richie entered Lynwood Correctional Facility at 3.15 p.m. PST on Thursday and was released at 4.37 p.m. due to over-crowding in the facility. This is the same jail where Paris Hilton also did time and was also released early for the same reasons, then brought back.

 A statement from the sheriffs' department noted that federal guidelines mandate arrestees sentenced to 30 days or less for a nonviolent offense could be released within 12 hours if the jail is overcrowded.

Earlier today, another celebrity-gone-criminal, Lindsay Lohan stuck a lucky plea bargain with the prosecution and was sentenced to only 1 day in jail, serve 10 days of community service and complete a drug treatment program.
