Aspen, Colorado (AP) - Dewi Sukarno, the former Indonesian first lady, has begun serving a 60- day sentence in a county jail for slashing the face of a Filipina jet- setter, Victoria Osmena - and faces a deportation hearing after her release.

'There is a good possibility she will be deported after she completes her sentence,' Agent Larry Hines of the Immigration and Naturalization Service said after Sukarno began her sentence. 'The fact that she was convicted makes her deportable.' He said Sukarno's visa expired last October and this made her an illegal alien. She usually lives at the Ritz Tower in New York.
