Elliot Mintz Confirms He’s No Longer Representing Paris Hilton
May 7, 2007 – Elliot Mintz has issued a statement confirming that he is no longer representing Paris after the heiress was sentenced to 45 days in prison for violating her probation on a DUI charge. “The day after the hearing, I sent an e-mail expressing my sadness over the ruling of the judge and the irrational sentence he imposed,” Mintz said. “In that e-mail I also offered my sincerest apology for any misunderstanding she received from me regarding the terms of her probation. To the extent that I have miscommunicated information I received from her attorneys… I am deeply and profoundly sorry. I told her that I assume personal responsibility for my part in this matter. I believe when stated in court that she believed it was o.k. for her to drive under certain circumstances she was being absolutely truthful. Due to this misunderstanding, I am no longer representing Paris. For the record, I have nothing but love and respect for Paris and her family. Paris is a wonderful person and does not deserve the punishment that was handed down by the court. I only wish her my best.”
