    Well the sheriff already did by releasing paris even though the judge ordered no electronic bracelet. It was just report on msnbc, that paris is planning a party tonight. While reporters were waiting for her escort back to court, party vans were arriving to bring chairs and stemware. Is that something normally you can do when release on house arrest?

    Actually, all kidding aside, I think yeah, she can do whatever she pleases when on house arrest.

Also, I don't think this is her first offense. If it was the court would go lightly on her, the fact that she did not bother to show up in court and sent her lawyers and started playing games with the justice system is what angers the public and the court system. As far as the public, fame is a very fleeting thing and in this country the minute you hit the big time the public is trying to tear you down. It is also the timing of seeing Britney, Lindsey and Paris all blowing off the consequences of their actions that has made the public tired of the 'little girls' and basically wants to throw them under the bus.
    Technically I believe her incarceration is for a parole violation, not DUI. She pretty much got a slap on the wrist for THAT.

    I love it!! The judge sent Miss Higher Than Thou back to jail!!! Sounds like she could have to serve her full sentence!

    I think Supernanny, Jo Frost, should have been called in to teach her mother how to deal with her.

    I'm glad he's sending her back to jail. It's the right thing to do, without a doubt.

    BUT, I don't blame her for being released..I blame the system. Of course she's going to do/say anything she can to get out of jail..we all would, it's an awful place to be.

    Yes ! He sent her back and said she must serve (in jail) the remainder of her sentence, which we know is 45 days. Note, the Sheriff will not be cited for contempt and I believe she was remanded back to Sheriff's custody. Time served/earned is an issue in question, but at the discretion of Sheriff.

    She was dragged out screaming "It isn't right" and calling for her Mother.

    Exactly. Furthermore, whether she's Paris Hilton or Paris Smith, I would consider suing for emotional distress. I mean they were just using her in a game of tug-of-war. The judge and the sheriff should have communicated better to avoid this whole mess. It's think it's a "I'm bigger than you" showdown between the two of them.

    Someone was mentionning yesterday on tv that it's a long standing fight between these two departments. The sheriff says we won't keep anyone in jail that has a bail below $10 000, so the judge raises it to $12 000, then the sheriff says ok, anyone below $12 000 doesn't go to jail, etc.

    Understood, but if precedents etc. were only able to be established by "worthy" cases, well, then, we'd be in a predicament all around. The fact is that the judge is the one with the authority to hand down a sentence. He gave Paris her sentence. So what right does the sheriff have to overturn what the judge has decreed. Why even have a judge, then? Why not go straight to the sheriff? The issue of jurisdiction is one they are going to have to straighten out.
    I do feel that a degree of schadenfreude surrounds the whole case. That said, I don't think the original sentence handed down to her (and reinforced today) was that out of line. Despite being charged with DUI and having her licence suspended she continued to drive. She was pulled over in January and charged with driving while suspended and made to sign a document saying she understood she was not allowed to drive. And yet she was pulled over again in February. How many chances does she get?
    And in terms of her being let out (on home arrest) due to her fragile emotional condition...well, I'm sure at least half of the people in prison are in emotional straits, particularly at the beginning. That shouldn't be a reason to let someone out of jail. I'm sure the jail had a medical ward she could have been sent to, if necessary.

    Screaming, Crying Paris Hilton Ordered Back to Jail
    Friday , June 08, 2007


    A screaming, crying Paris Hilton was ordered back to jail Friday to serve out the remainder of her 45-day sentence for a parole violation in a reckless driving case.

    "It's not right!" shouted the weeping Hilton. "Mom!" she called out to her mother in the audience.

    A witness said Hilton was "physically escorted" out of the courtroom by a female deputy.

    The heiress will get credit for the five days she already served.

    Hilton, 26, arrived in court Friday afternoon, sneaking past the media for the hearing that determined she was to be sent back to be jail. The sheriff's department that released her from prison picked her up at her home under judge's orders.

    Hilton hugged her parents and her sister goodbye and appeared to be in handcuffs as she entered a black-and-white patrol car, in which she was photographed crying.

    The car sped away from her home with lights flashing as news helicopters followed. Hilton arrived at the courthouse about 1:50 p.m. ET.

    The reality star's parents were also at the courthouse, with her mother Kathy Hilton telling reporters: "It's in God's hands."

    Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer's decision to have Hilton brought to court was announced by court spokesman Allan Parachini shortly before the hearing had been scheduled to start at noon ET.

    "Judge Sauer has instructed the Sheriff's Department to go to Ms. Hilton's residence, pick her up and bring her here. That is happening now," Parachini told reporters outside the courthouse.

    Earlier, the court announced that Hilton would not physically appear in a Los Angeles courthouse as she was ordered to do, but would attend the hearing via telephone. This decision was reversed under the judge's orders.

    Outside the courthouse, people on other business stopped to gawk at news cameras. One of them was Moses Baltazar, who was attempting to clear up his own traffic ticket. He said he was no fan of Hilton, noting she once tipped him only a dollar when he worked as a valet, even though he helped keep paparazzi away from her.

    He also said there was no excuse for her flouting the law. "Driving like that, you have to behave. If you're rich, you have money, you have to respect yourself," he said, adding he thinks she should be returned to jail.

    The frenzy began early Thursday when sheriff's officials released Hilton because of an undisclosed medical condition and sent her home under house arrest. She had been in jail since late Sunday.

    Hilton was fitted with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet and was expected to finish her 45-day sentence for a reckless driving probation violation at her four-bedroom, three-bath home.

    The decision by Sheriff Lee Baca to move Hilton chafed prosecutors and Sauer, who spelled out during sentencing that Hilton was not allowed to serve house detention.

    Late Thursday, Sauer issued the order for Hilton to return to court after the city attorney filed a petition demanding that Hilton be returned to jail and to show cause why Baca shouldn't be held in contempt of court.

    The move also was met with outrage from the sheriff's deputies union, members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, civil rights leaders, defense attorneys and others.

    "What transpired here is outrageous," county Supervisor Don Knabe told The Associated Press, adding he received more than 400 angry e-mails and hundreds more phone calls from around the country.

    Hilton's return home "gives the impression of ... celebrity justice being handed out," he said.

    Baca dismissed the criticism, saying the decision was made based on medical advice.

    "It isn't wise to keep a person in jail with her problem over an extended period of time and let the problem get worse," Baca told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.

    "My message to those who don't like celebrities is that punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice," Baca said.

    California Attorney General Jerry Brown criticized the Sheriff's Department for letting Hilton out of jail, saying he believed she should serve out her sentence.

    "It does hold up the system to ridicule when the powerful and the famous get special treatment," Brown told The Associated Press in an interview before testifying at a congressional hearing in Washington.

    "I'm sure there's a lot of people who've seen their family members go to jail and have various ailments, physical and psychological, that didn't get them released," he said. "I'd say it's time for a course correction."

    The Los Angeles County jail system is so overcrowded that attorneys and jail officials have said it is not unusual for nonviolent offenders such as Hilton to be released after serving as little as 10 percent of their sentences.

    In the hours after Hilton's release, it was a madcap scene outside her house in the hills above the Sunset Strip. As word spread that the poster child for bad celebrity behavior was back home, radio helicopter pilots who normally report on traffic conditions were dispatched to hover over her house and describe it to morning commuters. Paparazzi photographers on the ground quickly assembled outside its gates.

    Shortly before noon, Hilton issued a statement through her attorney.

    "I want to thank the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and staff of the Century Regional Detention Center for treating me fairly and professionally," she said. "I am going to serve the remaining 40 days of my sentence. I have learned a great deal from this ordeal and hope that others have learned from my mistakes."

    Hilton's path to jail began Sept. 7, when she failed a sobriety test after police saw her weaving down a street in her Mercedes-Benz on what she said was a late-night run to a hamburger stand.

    She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to 36 months' probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines.

    In the months that followed she was stopped twice by officers who discovered her driving on a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Sauer's courtroom, where he sentenced her to jail.
