Paris Hilton accepts her sentence
Paris Hilton is taken to court in LA
Hilton was distraught when she was sent back to jail
Paris Hilton says she will not appeal against her 45-day jail sentence for violating probation on a driving ban.

The celebrity heiress said she was "learning and growing" from her ordeal.

She is being held at a detention centre in Los Angeles, where she was believed to have undergone medical and psychiatric tests.

On Friday a judge ordered her back to jail, ending a brief stint under house arrest at her Hollywood Hills home. She was taken screaming from the court.

In a statement released by her lawyer on Saturday, the 26-year-old said: "Being in jail is by far the hardest thing I have ever done.

"During the past several days, I have had a lot of time to think and I believe that I am learning and growing from this experience."

Her lawyers had sought to keep her out of jail on grounds that she was suffering an unspecified medical condition.
