Paris Hilton has rehired publicist Elliot Mintz--days after she fired him for "misinformation" that led to her jail sentence.

Hilton, 26, will spend 45 days in a California correctional facility after she was found guilty of violating a probation order and driving with a suspended license in court on Friday.

At her hearing, Hilton told Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer that Mintz had repeatedly claimed her license had been suspended for only 30 days and that she could still drive for work-related matters.

Mintz accepts he was partially responsible for the strict sentence through misinformation, and left her employment last weekend.

However, Hilton has had second thoughts following a candid chat over dinner with Mintz last night.

He says, "I represent Paris and I'm proud to. We had a wonderful evening, we talked, and our media relationship resumes uninterrupted."

Hilton will begin her sentence on June 5.
