Paris Hilton "Crying" Behind Bars

A teary-eyed Paris Hilton received two visitors in jail yesterday, her lawyer and a shrink, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

Defense lawyer Richard Hutton and Dr. Charles Sophy were visitors at the facility for two hours, the paper said, as the hotel heiress seems to be struggling with incarceration.

A lawyer who is representing two murder suspects staying in the same ward as Hilton told the newspaper, "They can hear her crying a bit."

"She came out of her cell to make a phone call. She's not used to making collect calls and she needed help. A sergeant had to help her," the lawyer said, adding that inmate 9818783 had been "friendly" with other inmates.

The Web site TMZ reported Tuesday that the heiress has been crying on the phone and is not sleeping or eating.

Sources told the Post that Hilton was spared from a body cavity search upon her arrival at Lynwood.

"Paris didn't have to go through the cavity search. When bent over, she didn't have to cough," said Saul Reyes, who does maintenance at the women's jail as part of a work-release program. "She didn't have to spread 'em."

Sources said that the inmate enrollment process that usually takes 24 hours, took Hilton an hour.

"All the inmates waiting to be processed were taken into a temporary holding cell, and Paris was brought in and booked quickly. The inmates taunted Paris for getting special treatment," a bail bondsman told the newspaper.

And, luckily for Hilton, a soda machine was installed in her ward the day she arrived.

Apparently, someone from the outside tried to cheer Hilton up yesterday. The Post reported that deputies turned back two deliverymen carrying a dozen red roses and a fruit basket with apples, oranges and a pineapple for Hilton.

The care package included a card that said: "I hope you're OK. Call me when you can. Don't feel bad, remember you're Paris Hilton." It is not known who sent the package to Hilton.

But on the unlucky side of things, "Inside Edition" reports that the Lynwood jail is rife with staph infection, with over 402 inmate diagnosed last year alone.

For every 1,000 inmates that enter Lynwood, 13 will contract some version of this infection, the news show reported.
