Paris Hilton Turns Herself in Early, Begins Jail Sentence

Break out your party hats. It's official.

Paris Hilton turned herself in to authorities Sunday night and is behind bars.

The HO-tel heiress' surrender did not take place at the jail where she's doing time.

Paris' attorney, Richard Hutton, picked her up at her parents' house at 10:30 last night.

Paris Hilton, Hutton, her mom Kathy Hilton and her sister Nicky Hilton drove to the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles (below, left).

The men's facility, commonly referred to as the Twin Towers, is where Paris turned herself in to begin her 23-day jail sentence.

The Sheriff devised the plan of Paris turning herself in miles away from the actual site where she'll be doing time because the crush of paparazzi at the jail created a safety hazard.

Paris was then driven to the Lynwood Correctional Facility in Lynwood, Calif. (below, right) where inmates waited to ridicule her she is now serving her sentence.

Earlier last night, Hilton left home for the MTV Music Awards. After appearing on the red carpet, Hilton went to her folks' house for a brief time, then left to face the music.

TMZ reports that the prison's plans for Paris have changed. She'll be held in solitary confinement almost exclusively, meaning all hopes of a prison-style remake of the Paris Hilton sex tape are pretty much dashed.

Although there has been a pre-screened woman designated as her cell mate, for the time being, Hilton will be in solitary 23 hours a day. The hour that she's out, she's not really out.

Paris Hilton will be allowed to shower, use a phone and watch TV in a small pod adjacent to her cell. No Paris Hilton pussy will be on display. Sorry people.

Hutton released a statement to TMZ from Paris Hilton:

"I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation. During the past few weeks, I have had a lot of time to think and have come to realize I made some mistakes."

"This is an important point in my life and I need to take responsibility for my actions. In the future, I plan on taking more of an active role in the decisions I make. I want to thank my family, friends and fans for their continued support. Although I am scared, I am ready to begin my jail sentence."

Well spoken, Paris. Hopefully, Lindsay Lohan and/or Nicole Richie will join you behind bars any day now. At least then you'd both have some company!

Paris Hilton Quotes

We want to stay together forever. I wouldn't do a Vegas [wedding]. I don't know where or when but I do want it to be romantic.

Paris Hilton [on Benji Madden]

He's my best friend. He's just different from any guy that I've ever been with. I just trust him completely, and I know that he'd be there for me, no matter what.
