    Paris Hilton Sent Back To Jail

    Hilton sent back to jail in hysterics
    By LINDA DEUTSCH, AP Special Correspondent Today at 1:41 pm

    Paris Hilton was sent screaming and crying back to jail Friday after a judge ruled that she must serve out her sentence behind bars rather than in the comfort of her Hollywood Hills home.

    "It's not right!" shouted Hilton, who violated her probation in a reckless driving case. "Mom!" she cried out to her mother.

    Hours earlier, the 26-year-old hotel heiress was taken handcuffed from her home in a black-and-white police car, paparazzi sprinting in pursuit and helicopters broadcasting live from above. She entered the courtroom disheveled and weeping, hair askew, without makeup, wearing a fuzzy gray sweat shirt over slacks.

    She cried throughout the hearing, dabbing her eyes, and her body shook constantly. Several times she turned to her parents, seated behind her in the courtroom, and mouthed, "I love you."

    Despite being ordered to serve the remainder of her original 45-day sentence, Hilton could still be released early. Inmates are given a day off their terms for every four days of good behavior, and her days in home detention counted as time served.

    Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer was calm but apparently irked by Sheriff Lee Baca's decision to release Hilton three days into her sentence due to an unspecified "medical condition."

    "I at no time condoned the actions of the sheriff and at no time told him I approved the actions," Sauer said. "At no time did I approve the defendant being released from custody to her home."

    The hearing was requested by the city attorney's office, which had prosecuted Hilton and wanted Baca held in contempt for releasing Hilton despite Sauer's express order that she must serve her time in jail. The judge took no action on the contempt request.

    A member of the county counsel's staff said Baca was willing to come to court with medical personnel. The judge did not take him up on the offer.

    Assistant City Attorney Dan F. Jeffries argued that Hilton's incarceration was purely up to the judge. "Her release after only three days erodes confidence in the judicial system," he said.

    Hilton's attorney, Richard Hutton, implored the judge to order a hearing in his chambers to hear testimony about Hilton's medical condition before making a decision. The judge did not respond to that suggestion.

    Another of her attorneys, Steve Levine, said, "The sheriff has determined that because of her medical situation, (jail) is a dangerous place for her."

    "The court's role here is to let the Sheriff's Department run the jail," he said.

    The judge interrupted several times to say that he had received a call last Wednesday from an undersheriff informing him that Hilton had a medical condition and that he would submit papers to the judge to consider. He said the papers never arrived.

    Every few minutes, the judge would interrupt proceedings, state the time on the clock, and note that the papers still had not arrived.

    He also noted that he had heard that a private psychiatrist visited Hilton in jail, and he wondered if that person played a role in deciding her medical needs.

    The last attorney to speak was another deputy city attorney, David Bozanich, who declared, "This is a simple case. There was a court. The Sheriff's Department chose to violate that order. There is no ambiguity."

    Hilton's twisted jailhouse saga 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 hamburger run.

    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 while driving on a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Sauer's courtroom.

    Back before Sauer on Friday, Hilton's entire body trembled as the final pitch was made for her further incarceration. She clutched a ball of tissue and tears ran down her face.

    Seconds later, the judge announced his decision: "The defendant is remanded to county jail to serve the remainder of her 45-day sentence. This order is forthwith."

    Hilton screamed.

    Eight deputies immediately ordered all spectators out of the courtroom. Hilton's mother, Kathy, threw her arms around her husband, Rick, and sobbed uncontrollably.

    Deputies escorted Hilton out of the room, holding each of her arms as she looked back.

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

    to teach her mother how to deal with her??? Kathy Hilton is 100% responsible for who and what Paris Hilton is today. Kathy Hilton is worse than Dina Lohan.. as she is not only an enabler, but an educator of all things rich, priveleged, and bitchy.

    Re: Paris Hilton Sent Back To Jail

    So who did approve her release? I think the judge (or whoever did) is backpedaling due to public outcry. She should have never been released in the first place. People are in jail with clinical depression, people die in jail from various illnesses, what makes her special that she can serve her time at home?

    Oh right. She's Paris Hilton.

    Hope they keep her in their the whole time.

    Sorry, I don't know, but driving drunk once is all it takes to kill someone or ruin their lives or your own. So I think unless there are some very strong mitigating circumstances, incarceration the first time is warranted.

    I've known several people who have gotten a pass on a DUI and gone on to negatively affect someone else's life. A close friend of mine was seriously injured by a multiple DUI driver and it hurt her life, her career, financially, everything. The driver killed himself in the accident and the court wouldn't hold his estate fully responsible because he had two minor children who needed support. People just don't realize the havoc drunk driving can cause, and I think they should at leeast have some time to think about it in jail.


    In Miss Hilton's case, I believe that even though it was a DUI, the charge was actually reduced to reckless driving.

    This woman got every chance here, and has the wherewithal to make other arrangements rather than breaking the law.

    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.

    I don't blame her for this, i blame the Sheriff. What the hell is he on?

    The sheriff approved her release. He, and he only. The Sheriff didn't follow any proper procedures, and that's why we have the zoo we have today.

    And she is scheduled to now serve her entire time, but she won't stay in there a full 40 days. And I'll be fine with that when it happens, as long as happens legally and equitably.

    Re: Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    For anyone interested in the timeline of what brought us to this zoo today:

    Paris' Trouble Timeline

    Here is a chronology of events since Paris Hilton's arrest last year.

    Sept. 7: Officers arrest Paris Hilton in Hollywood for investigation of driving under the influence after she was spotted "driving erratically."

    Sept. 26: Hilton is charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence.

    Jan. 9: Hilton's lawyers enter not guilty pleas on her behalf to one count each of driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or above.

    Jan. 15: Hilton is pulled over by California Highway Patrol and informed that her license is suspended. She signs a document acknowledging she is not to drive.

    Jan. 22: Hilton pleads no contest to a reduced charge of alcohol-related reckless driving. She is placed on three years probation, ordered to enroll in alcohol education and pay $1,500 in fines.

    Feb. 27: Hilton is ticketed for misdemeanor driving with a suspended license. A copy of the document signed Jan. 15 is found in her glove compartment.

    March 29: The city attorney's office says it will ask a judge to revoke Hilton's probation.

    May 3: Prosecutors recommend Hilton serve 45 days in jail for a probation violation.

    May 4: Judge Michael Sauer sentences Hilton to 45 days in jail.

    May 6: Publicist Elliot Mintz says he and Hilton have parted ways over an apparent “misunderstanding she received from me regarding the terms of her probation."

    May 8: Hilton rehires Mintz.

    May 9: Hilton hires a new attorney, Richard A. Hutton, who specializes in DUI cases.

    May 14: Psychiatrist Charles Sophy says in court documents that Hilton is "distraught and traumatized as a consequence of the findings at the May 4 hearing ... and her fear of incarceration."

    May 16: Sheriff's officials say Hilton will serve 23 days in a special unit away from the general population.

    May 17: Hilton drops an appeal of her jail sentence.

    June 3: Hilton reports to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood after attending the MTV Movie Awards and saying she's ready to serve her sentence.

    June 4: Hilton's attorney says his client is doing well under the circumstances.

    June 7: Hilton is released from jail because of an undisclosed medical problem and is ordered serve the rest of her sentence in home confinement.
    And for the record, she also never enrolled or attended any alcohol education program as she was ordered to do (see Jan. 22 above). Yet another violation of her terms of probation.

    On a related note... I wonder what the driver of the taxi that Paris peed in in Hawaii is thinking about all this?

    Thanks for that information, Nemesis.

    The sequence makes it crystal clear that she did get opportunities to do the right things, but maybe Mom assured her that wasn't necessary ?

    Again, I'm not mean ... but Paris and her mother need a huge reality check.

    Oh, I agree, echo. I was just wondering is this was her first DUI, not that it matters in any way, other than to satisfy my curiousity.

    And yes, that sequence certainly makes it clear she was basically disregarding everything about her "probation".
