Paris likely to get a simple life in lockup

first_imgParis Hilton will have a very unglamorous new address if prosecutors get their way: the Los Angeles County jail. City attorney’s officials filed documents in Superior Court recommending the hotel heiress and TV star be jailed for 45 days for violating terms of her probation for an alcohol-related reckless-driving conviction. Prosecutors also want Hilton to stay away from alcohol for 90 days and wear a monitoring device that will chart whether she complies. And they are seeking to have her license suspended for an additional four months. The recommendation will be reviewed by a judge when Hilton appears for a probation-violation hearing today. The judge can accept it or impose a different penalty. The maximum penalty is 90 days in jail. City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said Hilton is being treated the same as anyone else. “Anyone who would have conducted themselves in a way that resulted in this set of facts, we would have made the same recommendation of 45 days in county jail, regardless of whether they were a celebrity or not,” he said Thursday. Delgadillo said he is requesting Hilton serve her time in the county jail, but where she is incarcerated is up to the judge. He said Hilton could ask to be housed in a jail of her choice, and if the judge grants that she would be required to pay the costs of her incarceration. Hilton, 26, pleaded no contest in January to reckless driving stemming from a Sept. 7 arrest in Hollywood. Police said she appeared intoxicated and failed a field sobriety test. She had a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent, the level at which an adult driver is in violation of the law. Hilton said she had only a single margarita at a charity event that evening but may have been “speeding a little bit” while on her way to get a hamburger. A no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt but is equivalent to a guilty plea for purposes of sentencing. She was sentenced to probation for 36 months, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines. Two other traffic stops are what landed Hilton back in court.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Lawsuit City

first_imgGranada Hills Who’s in charge? Re “Deal in LAFD-hazing suit” (Sept. 22): What has the city of Los Angeles come to? We now have our firefighters – whom we once held akin to sports figures – making a mockery of the citizens of this city. When will the L.A. City Council stand up to these lawsuits in court? Stop telling us this is the best deal for our city; it’s not. Who is being held responsible in the LAFD for these actions of supposed harassment and discrimination? What is being done to stop this type of activity within the LAFD? Corporate America changed years ago on these types of issues, but seemingly the city of Los Angeles and LAFD continue to wander through life without feeling a need for change or accountability. One has to wonder who is steering the boat. Re “Deal in LAFD-hazing suit” (Sept. 22): Thanks to Eric Garcetti for intervening and now that Tennie Pierce has succeeded in walking away with $1.43 million, $60,000 back pay plus his pension – without going to court – it leaves the door wide open for more racial and frivolous lawsuits. Come one, come all! Just this year $13 million has been paid out in lawsuits by the LAFD alone. It is no wonder we don’t have enough money to fight the gangs; it is all going to frivolous lawsuits and the high salaries of incompetent city officials. The City Council makes it so simple. Let’s all just vote yes and they will go away. At least Mayor Villaraigosa stepped in on the Pierce case, and Dennis Zine is the only council member to oppose the initial $2.7 million settlement last year. – Marianne Castro Lawson – Fred Peters Burbank Bad settlement Re “Deal in LAFD-hazing suit” (Sept. 22): The payment of $1.43 million to an L.A. fireman because he was subjected to a demeaning stunt of having to eat dog food is the most absurd political decision I have ever heard. There was no physical harm to Tennie Pierce and, according to Councilman Dennis Zine, Pierce had a reputation of being a prankster. This should have gone to court where maybe the judge would have had clearer vision and thrown the case out of court. Even if an award had been given, wouldn’t a person in his position have been delighted with $10,000? – Karen Carrington Reseda Jenna case Re “Damage done” (Our Opinions, Sept 24): In view of the news media’s constant reporting of racial conflicts throughout our nation, perhaps we should pause and reflect on two old sayings of yesteryear. “Do unto others as you wish others to do unto you” and “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names won’t hurt me.” Adherence of some degree to such statements is imperative and long overdue for solving some of our social problems; common sense should prevail. – Everett P. Harrington Glendale New homes conserve Re “H2O halt” (Our Opinions, Sept. 19): Southern California is facing a water crisis, but don’t blame home builders. They are simply responding to the demand for new housing caused by our state’s population growth. In fact, home builders are working to solve California’s water problems by working with local governments and communities to conserve water by building new homes that use far less water than older homes. But conservation alone has its limits. To ensure that California has enough water to meet the needs of current and future residents, our long-neglected water supply system must be expanded and better managed. California’s home builders are dedicated to creating homeownership opportunities while protecting the environment – a balance that cannot be compromised. The current water crisis facing the state is a difficult challenge that needs comprehensive solutions. – Robert Rivinius President and CEO California Building Industry Association A design flaw? Re “Mattel backpedals on blame” (Business, Sept. 22): Something sure smells fishy about this. I can understand design flaws in cars, TVs, and even toasters and coffee makers but what exactly is a “design flaw” in a Barbie doll? Did Mattel’s “design flaw” consist of omitting the head, or a leg, or maybe designing in three eyes. This is a simple product that has been manufactured for decades. The design has been around for a long time. We are given no details about what exactly was this “design flaw” that Mattel perpetrated. I suspect that we never will be told the details. – Leonard McGinnis Granada Hills160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

4 LANTERNS ULSTER SENIOR LEAGUE: RESULTS, REPORTS AND TABLE

ReportsAll Square in DrumkeenDrumkeen Utd. 3Swilly Rovers 3Swilly Rovers were the visitors to St Patricks Park for this Thursday evening game. Before the match started a minutes silence was observed in memory of the late Willie Mc Laughlin who sadly passed away last week. The game got off to a lively start with four goals in the first half hour, Drumkeen went ahead after five minutes when Eunan Kelly headed home a Darren Cassidy corner. This was Drumkeen’s second corner and, by that stage Swilly had also won a free kick and corner which were both taken by Laurence Toland and both easy for Paul McAuley to deal with, The home team then had a couple of more chances with Conor Carlin and Ronan Coyle both shooting wide. Swilly were level after twelve minutes. Laurence Toland went down under a challenge from Ryan Gildea and referee Paul Duddy awarded a penalty. Calvin Mooney took the spot kick which hit the cross bar and bounced down into the net. Shortly after that at the other end, Carlin had an effort saved by John Roulstone. Swilly then took the lead after Twenty minutes, Paul McAuley took a free kick which had been awarded for offside and unfortunately for him his free went straight to Calvin Mooney who fired it home for his second goal of the game. Mooney grabbed his third goal on the half hour after he was played in by the impressive Laurence Toland. The play was switching from end to end and Gary Patton headed over at the other end, Drumkeen finished the half strongly forcing Swilly to concede several corners.They started the second half in the same fashion and had efforts from Carlin and Cassidy which both went over the bar and Darren McCready forced a save from Roulstone. All their pressure paid off in the 52nd minute when Gary Patton pulled a goal back when he scored from 12 yards after the ball had been laid back to him. Swilly who had been very lively in the first half seemed to run out of steam in the second half and Drumkeen had the best of the last half hour although Laurence Toland did have an effort that went wide on 75 minutes. With 15 minutes left Mickey Rogers had used up all his 3 allowed substitutes. One of those who came on was Gavin Reilly and he was involved in the equaliser with less than 10 minutes remaining he surged forward and passed it to Gary Patton on the right wing, Patton’s cross found Conor Carlin who slotted it home for the equaliser. That set it up nicely for the last few minutes but neither side could find a fourth goal to claim the three points. Paul Duddy blew the final whistle and both teams had to settle for a point. This wasn’t really a three all thriller but it was a good enough game to watch. Both managers will probably be disappointed with the result as a point was not much use to either team in their quest to close the gap on Cockhill, The games don’t get any easier for Drumkeen as their next one is away to Cockhill. DRUMKEEN- Paul McCauley, Mickey Carrol, Benny Bonner, Ryan Gildea, Eunan Kelly, Philip Whyte, Darren Cassidy, Darren McCready, Conor Carlin, Ronan Coyle, Gary Patton. SUBS -David Shovlin on for Whyte 63mins, Brian Mc Grory on for Bonner 63mins,Gavin Reilly on for Gildea 70 mins, Peter Mc Namee, Justin Deasley,SWILLY- John Roulstone, Darren Dunworth, Gareth Colhoun, Marty Boyce, Dylan Hegarty, Ryan Shields, Jordan Toland, Marty Mc Daid, Michael Mc Hugh, Laurence Toland, Calvin Mooney, SUBS- Ryan Mc Daid on for Ryan Shields, Cathal Diver on for Mc Hugh 80 mins, David Aina, Mark Wilson.Champions Collect another 3 PointsFanad Utd. 1 Cockhill Celtic 4League leaders Cockhill Celtic overcame 10 man Fanad United in an entertaining game at Traigh-a-Loch. The visitors started the stronger and took the lead in the 10th minute. Garbhan Friel latched on to a long ball before cutting inside Declan Sweeney and powering his shot into the far corner of the net. The goal seemed to spark Fanad into life and they started to apply pressure themselves. This pressure paid off in the 20th minute when Oisin Hasset broke through the defence only to be taken down by Gavin Cullen. Cullen was certainly lucky to only receive a yellow card for the incident as Hasset was through on goal. Brian McVeigh subsequently gave Cullen no chance with his penalty. Fanad had young keeper Shane Graham to thank for keeping the scores level at the break when he made 2 excellent saves in the 32nd and 35th minute. First from a Malachy McDermott shot and then from a Mark Moran shot.The second half started in a similar fashion with Cockhill having most of the possession while not creating any clear cut chances. The game changed in the 60th minute when James McCahill was adjudged to have fouled Mark Moran in the box. McCahill was then shown a straight red card for arguing about the decision. Garbhan Friel made no mistake with the penalty sending Graham the wrong way. 5 minutes later Friel should have completed his hat-trick only to see his shot blocked on the line by Declan Sweeney. A minute later Glenn McNulty blocked Gerry Gill’s shot on the line. Cockhill increased their lead in the 79th minute when James Bradley finished to the net after Graham had saved Friel’s shot. Garbhan Friel wasn’t to be denied his hat-trick though and in the 85th minute he finished into the bottom corner after Graham had made another good save. In the end Cockhill’s vast experience told but Fanad will point to the fact that Cullen could have been sent off earlier in the game and that might have affected the outcome. Best for Fanad were Shane Graham, Glenn McNulty and Declan Sweeney. Best for Cockhill were Mark Moran, Gerry Gill and Garbhan Friel.Fanad United: Shane Graham, Conor McGonigle (Keelin McElwaine 72), Daire McDaid, Kevin Murray, Declan Sweeney (Shay Durning 85), Glenn McNulty, James McCahill, Jordan McBride, Adam Serrinha, Oisin Hasset ( Conor Matthewson 77), Brian McVeighCockhill Celtic: Gavin Cullen, Kieran McLaughlin, Peter Doherty, Johnny Halvin, William O’Connor, Derek Doherty (Aidan O’Donnell 77), James Bradley, Malachy McDermott (Michael Noone 50), Mark Moran, Garbhan Friel (Gerard McLaughlin 85), Gerry GillRef: P CollLetterkenny Beat Harps to go 3rdLetterkenny Rovers 3Finn Harps Res. 1Letterkenny Rovers title ambitions remain on track following a hard earned 3-1 victory against a strong Finn Harps eleven at Leckview Park on Sunday afternoon.It was the home side who made a cracking start to the game netting twice in the opening 7 minutes. The game was barely 2 mins old when Chris Flanagan was robbed of possession by Oisin McMenamin down the left hand side. McMenamin powered into the box before crossing to the far post to the in rushing Kenny Doran and he got the final touch from 3 yards out despite the close attention of a Harps defender.In an exciting start Harps could have equalised just a minute later when Jason Quinn had to be at his best to deny Dean McConnell whose header was superbly tipped over by the young net minder. Rovers had Harps reeling yet again after only 7 minutes. The lively Kenny Doran did well to nip in and win the ball before being fouled by Aaron Scanlon. Doran got injured in the impact and had to be substituted 4 minutes later. Former Harps player Johnathan Minnock stepped up and scored the free from 18 yards catching Conor Winn out at the near post.The visitors did boss the rest of the first half with Matty Henry and Graham Fisher dominating midfield and would have caught the eye of the watching Harps management duo of Ollie Horgan and James Gallagher. After good efforts by Micheal Doherty and Darragh Black it was Henry who brought Harps back into the game. After some neat play involving Fisher, Black and Henry it was Henry with a sweet shot from outside the box which left keeper Quinn stranded in the Rovers goal. Packie Mailey was very commanding at centre half and Rovers created nothing more of note until the 43rd minute when Darren McElwaine had a header from substitute Matty Harkins cross just graze the topside of the crossbar with goalkeeper Conor Winn in no man’s land.The second half was a more even affair and with some dangerous set pieces Graham Fisher and Henry both went close with headers from superb deliveries by Micheal Doherty. Letterkenny came close on two occasions when Matty Harkins low shot was superbly tipped around the post by Winn on 64 minutes and a minute later Stevie Okakpo’s rasper of a shot was destined for the top corner only for Winn to show great athleticism to deny him. Lettterkenny brought on ex-Harps player Stephen O’Donnell on 70 minutes and it took no time at all for him to make an impact. His super cross from the right hand side following a quick throw in found the head of Matty Harkin who made no mistake from 5 yards out on 76 minutes. The game fizzled out after that and with Harps having no substitutes Letterkenny began to control proceedings although Micheal Doherty did force a quality save from Quinn with only 4 minutes left which could have made the game interesting if he had scoredNext up for Harps is a meeting with Derry on Tuesday night while Letterkenny are back at Leckview for a meeting with Fanad Utd on Wednesday.Letterkenny Rovers; Jason Quinn, Barry O’Donnell, Neil Lloyd, John Doherty, Johnathan Minnock, Glen Gallagher, Aaron O’Hagan, Stevie Okakpo, Kenny Doran, Darren McElwaine, Oisin McMenamin.
