Psychiatrist Visits Paris Hilton in Jail
The therapist has said the heiress was "distraught and traumatized" about jail
Paris Hilton got her second visitor in jail: her psychiatrist.
Dr. Charles Sophy, the Beverly Hills therapist who has been treating her for the past eight months, entered the jail with Hilton’s lawyer Tuesday and stayed for about two hours.
Both left without commenting.
Last month, Sophy had told a judge that Hilton was so upset by her jail sentence that she was “not capable of any meaningful participation” in a $10 million slander and libel lawsuit against her.
“She is emotionally distraught and traumatized as a consequence of the findings at the May 4 hearing, the jail sentence imposed upon her by the judge, and her fear of incarceration,” Sophy wrote in papers filed by Hilton’s lawyers.
Sophy was the second person to see Hilton, 26, since she surrendered late Sunday night to serve at least 23 days for a probation violation in an alcohol-related driving case.
On Monday, her lawyer Richard A. Hutton saw her for several hours and said she was coping as well as possible to 23 hours a day in solitary confinement.
