Prosecutors say the man who accosted Paris Hilton's boyfriend outside a Los Angeles courthouse has pleaded no contest to misdemeanour battery and has been sentenced to 227 days in jail.

City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan says James Rainford entered the plea during a court appearance in Van Nuys and was immediately sentenced.

Rainford was seen trying to grab or hit Cy Waits as he and Paris walked into a Van Nuys courthouse to testify against a man arrested outside the celebrity socialite's home last year. Rainford was tackled by Paris' security and turned over to police.

Mateljan says Rainford was sentenced to three years of informal probation and ordered to stay away from Waits when he is released.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
