Business ethics

I was wondering what you all think about the sentencing of Paris Hilton for driving on a suspended license. Apparently, the maximum sentence is 90 days, the judge sentenced her to 45 days and she got out in 23 days for good behavior. She was in a special cell away from the general population. Everyone was in an uproar about the leniency of her punishment. Do you think that she received special treatment? Do the rich deserve better than the poor?
