Paris Hilton, Boyfriend Attacker Jailed.
James Rainford, the man who attacked Paris Hilton and her boyfriend Cy Waits on Wednesday, has been sent to jail.
TMZ is reporting that Rainford got sentenced to 227 days in prison after he pleaded ‘no contest’ to misdemeanor battery.
Rainford was already on probation and the judge threw the book at him for violating the terms of his probation. He was arrested last October after trespassing on the socialite’s property and getting into an altercation with her security.
In addition to the jail sentence, Rainford was sentenced to three years informal probation and ordered to stay away from Waits once he’s released.
Hilton and Waits were walking into a Superior Court building in Van Nuys when Rainford attempted to grab Waits in the back of the neck. He was immediately subdued by a bodyguard and handed over to police.
After his arrest, Rainford explained to police that he was in love with Hilton and had her father’s permission to marry her.
Hilton and Waits were at the Van Nuys courthouse to testify in a case against Nathan Parada who broke into their home last year wielding a knife.
