The Youngest Celebrities To Serve Jail Time

By on August 16, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

With the prevalence of social media and a 24-7 news cycle, seeing a celebrity in trouble with the law is an almost daily occurrence. Whether it be a DUI, assault, or anything in between, celebs seem to find themselves in trouble with the law pretty often. Rarely, though, do these incidents end with any actual jail time. But some of them actually do end up spending some time in the slammer. Here is a list of the youngest celebrities to do jail time.

Paris Hilton, 26 years old

Paris Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail back in 2007 for violating probation for a DUI she was charged with in 2006. She ended up serving only 22 days of the sentence, but we assume that the scenery in prison wasn't quite as posh as her family's hotels.

Amanda Bynes, 26 years old

Amana Bynes spent one night in jail back in 2012 when she was charged with a DUI for hitting a police car and trying to leave the scene of the crime. She later copped to a lesser charge and was placed on three years probation.

Chris Breezy spent 234 days in jail for violating his 2009 probation order following his assault of then-girlfriend, Rihanna.

He was released later in the year.

Snooki, 22 years old
