Paris Hilton MUST Go Back To Court

    BREAKING NEWS

    Hours after Paris Hilton was sent home under house arrest Thursday, the judge who put her in jail ordered her into court to determine whether she should be put back behind bars. Hilton must report to court at 9 a.m. Friday, Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini told The Associated Press.

    Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer issued his order after the city attorney filed a petition late Thursday afternoon questioning if Sheriff Lee Baca should be held in contempt of court for releasing Hilton Thursday morning.

    She was ordered to finish her 45-day sentence under house arrest, meaning she could not leave her four-bedroom, three-bath home in the Hollywood Hills until next month.

    The monster can’t blame Paris for what happened. She didn’t make this decision.

    Why can’t they just lock-up this monster instead for abusing his power as a judge?

    Release Of “Paris Album – Remixes And Unreleased Songs” May Be Delayed

    I’m about to send a newsletter to the subscribers and inform them next week’s list of “Extra Paris” files and that the release of “Paris Album – Remixes And Unreleased Songs” and the petition may be delayed for undetermined amount of time due to today’s news.

    Normally, this shouldn’t be happening, but if the media still concertrates on Paris’ sentence issues, it might be delayed. At this point, I’m not sure if the whole package for June 7, 2007 will be delayed.

    Since the judge has requested a hearing tomorrow, we may expect to see more of today’s chaos.

    This decision is entirely because of what is happening right now.

    City Attorney Screams: Paris Hilton, Go Back To Jail!

    The Los Angeles City Attorney has filed a motion, asking the judge who sentenced Paris Hilton to have her returned to jail to serve out her full sentence.

    In the documents obtained by TMZ, City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo is also asking Judge Michael Sauer to hold a hearing, demanding that the Sheriff’s Department show why it should not be held in contempt of court for “violating Judge Sauer’s May 4, 2007 order, which expressly stated “no electronic monitoring.”

    Late this afternoon, the judge granted the request for a hearing, which is now scheduled for 9:00 AM PDT tomorrow.

    The World Is Confused And “Angry” That A Rich, Pretty And Famous Woman Couldn’t Complete Her Jail Term

    Hatemongers Are Mad As Hell

    Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca has allowed Paris Hilton to leave prison after less than four days because of a “medical condition.” She will serve her remaining sentence under house arrest.

    Unconfirmed reports from the gossip website TMZ.com allege the condition was psychological, not physical.

    Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo released a statement to TMZ.com, saying he was “extremely troubled to learn that the Sheriff’s Department has decided to release Ms. Hilton from custody.”

    He added he was “concerned that the judicial process may have been improperly circumvented in this case. Ms. Hilton was incarcerated as a condition of her probation. As a result, the judge retained jurisdiction over her case and only the judge has the power to modify these conditions of probation.”

    Allan Parachini, the public information officer for the Los Angeles County Courts, said Judge Michael T. Sauer — responsibly for sentencing Hilton — did not want her released early.

    L.A. County Sheriff’s office spokesperson Steve Whitmore called the release a “re-assignment.”

    “After extensive consultation with medical personnel…. it was determined that Paris Hilton would be reassigned to a community-based alternative custody electronic monitoring program,” he said Thursday.

    “And what that means is this… she will be confined to her home for the next 40 days.”

    Whitmore said he could not disclose what the medical condition was because of privacy issues.

    “I can’t specifically talk about the medical situation other than to say that, yes, it played a part in this,” he said, although added it was not a staph infection.

    Star watchers believe Hilton’s dramatic decline in health was a convenient excuse to get an early release.

    “She met with a psychiatrist yesterday in jail so people are speculating she was just too depressed to stay in jail any longer. She certainly appears to be physically healthy, we saw her on the red carpet for the MTV Movie Awards Sunday evening; hours before going to jail,” Jill Dobson, news and style editor for Star magazine, told CTV Newsnet from New York.

    “Everything slides off Paris and this is one more example of that,” Dobson said.

    Hilton, originally sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case, was expected to serve a reduced sentence of 23 days in prison.

    Hilton will be confined to her home and equipped with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet.

    “She was transported out of here by us and then there was a transference to her attorney and then she was taken home,” said Whitmore.

    The bracelet will limit Hilton to a distance of 3,000 to 4,000 feet, which will confine her movements even within her family’s luxurious mansion.

    “Her house is much bigger than that, so she will actually have a problem. She is going to have to tape off certain areas of her home where she won’t be able to go without going out of range,” Dobson said.

    The 26-year-old celebutante turned herself in at the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles just after 10:30 p.m. on Sunday night.

    Then she was escorted to the all-women’s Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood just after 11:30 p.m., where she was booked, fingerprinted and issued a jail uniform, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said.

    The “Simple Life” star was being housed in the “special needs” unit of the 13-year-old jail, separate from most of its 2,200 inmates.

    The unit consists of 12 two-person cells reserved for police officers, public officials, celebrities and other high-profile inmates.

    Entertainment insiders believe the value of Hilton’s post-jail interview will plummet, as will the value of the diary she was supposed to write while incarcerated.

    “The value of that diary certainly took a nose dive because of this,” Dobson said.

    “Now she can’t write about the never-ending weeks of prison time and she won’t be able to talk about her interaction with other inmates because really she was by herself for about three full days.”

    Hilton was reportedly not sharing her cell with another inmate.

    She was permitted to take her meals in her cell and was allowed to venture outside the 12-foot-by-8-foot space every day for at least an hour to shower, watch TV in the day room, participate in outdoor recreation or talk on the telephone.

    Hilton has also had to do without her beauty accessories since the prison does not allow such things as curling irons, rollers, hair brushes, hair sprays, hair dye, tweezers, razors, hair removal wax and mirrors.

    Officers arrested Hilton in Hollywood on Sept. 7. In January, she pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of the alcohol-related reckless-driving charge. She was sentenced to 36 months’ probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines.

    But the heiress was pulled over again by California Highway Patrol on Jan. 15.

    Officers informed Hilton she was driving on a suspended license and she signed a document acknowledging she was not to drive.

    Then again on Feb. 27, she was pulled over by sheriff’s deputies, at which time she was charged with violating her probation.

    A traffic court judge ruled on May 4 that Hilton violated her probation and sentenced her to 45 days in jail.

    Kathy And Rick Hilton Arrive To Paris Hilton’s House

    Paris Hilton’s parents, Kathy and Rick, showed up at their daughter’s West Hollywood home this afternoon and were greeted by a swarm of paparazzi. The beleaguered parents could barely make their way to her front door through the pack of paps!

    Meanwhile, famed author Dominick Dunne mulled around outside. He told reporters that he was in town for the Phil Spector trial, but just had to check out the scene at Chateau Hilton. Dunne actually expressed a twinge of regret about Paris leaving jail early, saying, “I think she should have served out the whole thing. I think she could have come out a heroine. Man, I don’t know, this sounds like rich kid stuff.”

    First Don King says Paris is “what America is all about,” now Dunne calls her a would-be “heroine.” What a day.

    Attorney Leonard Levine: Early Releases Are Not Uncommon

    This article doesn’t talk about the medical reasons

    The judge said she’d get no breaks. The sheriff said she’d do her time. Even Paris Hilton said she was ready to face her sentence. Three days after making a late-night entrance at a county jail, Hilton left in the middle of the night, raising questions about whether she had finally cashed in on her celebrity status and gotten special treatment.

    Although the jury of public opinion may be outraged at Hilton’s early release, attorneys who have handled similar cases for less famous folks said her treatment was neither special nor unusual.

    “She would have gotten out early if she was plain Jane,” said attorney Leonard Levine, who has handled numerous probation violation cases. “She did as much time as a normal person would have done.”

    Levine and other experts noted that the Los Angeles County jail system is so overcrowded that thousands of prisoners have been receiving early release in nonviolent cases, many of them serving only 10 percent of their sentences. In December, a federal judge renewed a temporary restraining order on the jails that sheriff’s officials argue have forced early releases.

    “The real problem with these cases is to get them treated like anyone else,” said attorney Harland Braun, who often represents celebrities. “She was being treated differently. I can’t imagine anyone else going in for 45 days for a probation violation. I always thought she was being treated more harshly than anyone else.”

    Loyola University law professor Laurie Levenson said she suspects the deal for Hilton’s release was in the works even before she entered the jail system.

    “I don’t think her lawyer sent her in expecting her to do 23 days,” she said, and added that jail officials probably were anxious to get her out of their custody.

    “She was going to be a major drain on the institution,” Levenson said. “The time and resources needed to take care of a Paris Hilton are huge. They have to make sure she is safe and her medical needs are attended to. Everything they did was going to be looked at under a microscope.”

    Levine said that with rewards being offered for pictures of Hilton in custody, jail officials would have to monitor the cell phone cameras of every employee to make sure they did not try to photograph her.

    City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo denounced the sheriff’s decision to release Hilton, saying his office was not properly advised and would have opposed it on legal grounds. Delgadillo asserted that only the judge retained jurisdiction over her case.

    Steve Cron, another defense attorney who has represented celebrities, said Hilton’s treatment was unusual. He said more recent releases due to overcrowding have come after prisoners serve 25 percent of their sentences.

    “I think the sheriff was just tired of the paparazzi and the increased security problems,” said Cron. “But I don’t buy the reasons they gave.”

    Cron and others said that inmates with health or psychological problems can be treated in the jail infirmary. Levine agreed, saying a claim that she was released because of psychological problems doesn’t ring true.

    “If psychological problems were good reason to have people released, half the population of the prisons would be out,” said Levine.

    Cron said that whether or not Hilton was treated fairly, the outcome of this high-profile criminal case doesn’t reflect well on the criminal justice system.

    “I’m proud of the system and this makes the system look cheap,” Cron said. “It makes it look like she’s a celebrity and she got a sweetheart deal. It will further the perception that celebrities are treated differently and that’s unfortunate.”

    Discriminating Michael T. Sauer Was Not Advised Before The Decision Of Releasing Paris Hilton Was Made

    [Edited]

    Sheriff Lee Baca released Hilton early Thursday to serve 40 days at her Hollywood Hills home. The hotel heiress, 26, served three days of what was expected to be a three week stay for violating probation in a reckless driving case.

    Baca’s spokesman said the judge who sentenced her had been consulted, but he didn’t mention that Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer objected to her release. When Sauer sentenced her last month he specifically said she could not do her time at home.

    Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini says the judge “did not agree to the terms of release that the sheriff proposed.”
