It is the job of Paris Hilton’s lawyer, David Chernoff, to rigorously defend the socialite from any and all charges while under her employ. Translation: SPIN THIS CHIT any way you can.
His comment on her latest arrest just before midnight on Friday, August 27, 2010 in Las Vegas on possession of cocaine is:
"Paris Hilton was released this morning on her own recognizance. This matter will be dealt with in the courts not in the media and I encourage people not to rush to judgment until all of the facts have been dealt with in a court of law."
Shame on all of us for automatically assuming Paris is either guilty as sin or that someone is going to be the fall guy/girl or that somehow this charge will be reduced because, say what you will, money talks. If this was Joe Average being charged with cocaine possession I doubt he/she would have been released on his own recognizance like Ms. Hilton.
If Mr. Chernoff wonders why everyone rushes to judgment, we only have the facts to go by.
Back in June of 2007, after her release from prison, Paris sat down with Larry King and discussed how her party days are over and how she is going to serve mankind and those less advantaged. Uh-huh. I haven’t seen any pictures of her doing volunteer work, and although some might say she wants to keep it on the down low, this is Paris Hilton we are talking about. Everything is for public consumption.
In July of 2010 she was detained in South Africa for possession of pot that turned out to be "her friend’s" pot. Uh-huh.
And a few weeks after that, she was stopped in France when they found less than an ounce of pot on her person, to which she Tweeted: "The stories saying I have been arrested are completely false!"
