PARIS IS COSTING 10 TIMES THE RATE; Sheriff blasts heiress bills.

Byline: By John Ferguson

PARIS HILTON is costing 10 times more than a typical con to keep in jail, it was claimed yesterday.

Los Angeles County sheriff Lee Baca said the bill for holding her was pounds 563.20 a day.

A normal female inmate costs just pounds 50.57.

It would cost less to put Hilton up at one of her dad's luxury hotels for the rest of her 23-day sentence for driving while banned. Suites at the Beverly Hilton start at pounds 260 a night.

Baca released the figures days after a judge overturned his decision to let Hilton finish her sentence under house arrest at her mansion for "medical reasons".

However, a US prison industry source poured scorn on the sky-high figure.

He said: "There has been no real breakdown of this sum provided and it seems difficult to imagine why it is so high, unless Hilton is being given special treatment.

"A lot of people are saying this is just an attempt to address the public outrage that letting her out in the first place caused."

It has been reported that the 26-year-old suffers from claustrophobia and extreme Attention Deficit Disorder. She is taking the drug Adderall for her ADD.

It is claimed Hilton was not getting all her medication at Lynwood jail and, as a result, she was having severe panic attacks.

A source said: "There were times she was so debilitated, she could not push the panic button in her cell."

Now that she has been incarcerated in Los Angeles' notorious Twin Towers jail, she is said to be depressed "but not really crying".

She has a pencil and a pad of paper and is spending her time writing down her thoughts.
