Khloe Kardashian heads to jail to serve 30-day sentence    2008-07-15 17:41:23    

Washington, July 15 : American television personality Khloe Kardashian is headed to jail this week to serve a 30-day sentence.
American television personality Khloe Kardashian is headed to jail this week to serve a 30-day sentence.

Kim Kardashian's 24-year-old sister was sentenced for violating her probation back in March 2007, which had stemmed from a DUI charge.

"Khloe is ready and willing to serve out her sentence, no matter how long and where, and have this resolved," E!online quoted her rep, Jeff Raymond, as saying in a statement July 14.

The fashion entrepreneur had been sentenced on August 27 to 36 months' probation and community service with the California Department of Transportation.

She was further ordered to complete an alcohol-education program, after pleading no contest to driving under the influence on March 4, 2007, revealed Los Angeles City Attorney's Office spokesman Frank Mateljan.

Her attorney admitted on July 3 in L.A. Superior Court in Van Nuys that she had not completed the alcohol class or the community service.

The younger Kardashian sister was ordered to reenrol in the programme, but the Caltrans part of her sentence was scrapped and she was ordered to spend 30 days behind bars, for violating the terms of her probation.

But with the jail in L.A. County being so overcrowded, the sentence could very well end up being for just three days.

Her offer to "surrender directly" to Lynwood County Jail was denied, as per court records obtained by E! News.

Instead, she's scheduled to turn herself in July 18, after which she must start attending the alcohol class within 21 days of her release.

"Drinking and driving should be taken very seriously and unfortunately, Khloe had to learn the hard way," mom Kris Jenner said in a statement.

"I hope Khloe will learn from her mistakes and I hope all of her brothers and sisters will learn from her actions and consequences. As always, we love and support our children," her mom added.

And in the spirit of both sisterhood and information sharing, Kim Kardashian wrote on her personal blog July 15, regarding the situation.

"I have been getting asked all day if Khloe is going to jail. I know my fans rely on coming to my blog for the truth...," Kim wrote.

"Khloe wants you to know she was sentenced to go to jail in regards to her one DUI case last year. Khloe is ready and willing to serve out her sentence, no matter how long and where, and have this resolved. I urge people to learn from the mistakes of others. Please drink responsibly and it's never acceptable to drink and drive!" she added. (ANI)
