Richie gets four days in jail

Nicole Richie appeared in court in Glendale, California, this morning to face charges of DUI stemming from her December 2006 arrest. The diminutive star, wearing a loose-fitting black dress, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four days in jail. She also agreed to serve three years probation, must enroll in an alcohol education program and was fined $2.048. "Someone could've gotten killed," the court commissioner scolded during the hearing. "You need to understand that driving under the influence is extremely dangerous." The Simple Life star has been given the option of serving her sentence in a paid city jail, which is seen as less rigid than a county facility. Her jail time must be completed before September 28.
