LYNWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Paris Hilton may be out of jail, but she's still on probation for driving on a suspended license.
The hotel heiress can complete her probation in March 2009 if she keeps her driver's license current and doesn't break any laws. Officials say she can reduce that time by 12 months if she does community service that could include a public-service announcement.
The hotel heiress walked out of the jail in Lynwood, California, to a big horde of cameras and reporters shortly after midnight Los Angeles time. She had a big smile on her face as she walked to the S-U-V where her parents were waiting.
During her three-week stay at the all-women's facility, Hilton was mostly confined to a solitary cell in the special needs unit away from the other 22-hundred inmates.
Hilton was initially sentenced to 45 days in jail, but was released early for reasons that included good behavior.
