Paris Hilton’s Number 1 Mistake

Raleigh DUI LawyerParis Hilton was arrested this weekend for allegedly possessing .8 grams of cocaine. That would be felony possession in North Carolina.

Paris could’ve saved herself some grief, however, by not saying anything. Had she kept quiet – and been polite to police – she would’ve prevented the police from collecting any additional evidence – i.e., her statements – that could be used to convict her.

Now Paris may be eligible for a first offenders program in Nevada, and she will be able to hire the best criminal defense lawyers in Las Vegas. But she could’ve saved herself at least some risk by not speaking with police.
