Nicole Richie Will Spend 4 Days in Slammer

This just in, hot off the TMZ presses: A pregnant Nicole Richie, accompanied by her boyfriend/baby daddy Joel Madden, was just sentenced by a L.A. County Superior Courtroom commissioner to serve four days in jail for her wrong-way DUI bust in December. This is her second DUI conviction in four years.

Nicole has the choice (?!) to serve four days in the City or County Jail, and she got credit for a fifth day, for the six hours she initially served after being busted. She was also fined $2,048, was ordered back to school for 21 days to an alcohol education course and will be on probation for three years. Plus, she must report to serve her time by September 28.

Though this seems like a light sentence (especially when compared to Paris Hilton), the commissioner did sternly warn her that if she ever drove drunk again and actually killed someone, she'd be charged with murder -- not manslaughter. Well, that makes us feel a lot better.

Nicole is expected to give birth sometime in January. Crazy!
