Wow. Now if Bush would listen to the people...
Can't the Judge just put her into a different jail where said sheriff can not make up his own rules?
He who knows does not speak.
He who speaks does not know.
Hopefully, the judge will do the right thing and send her back to jail, but I won't get my hopes up. But the thing that gets me is that I read that originally the judge that sentenced her to jail said that Paris couldn't serve her sentence at home, so why would the sheriff take it upon himself to defy that order? If there's any justice the sheriff that let her out will be looking for a new job.
I saw this from the NY Port - who's Page Six is in Hilton's pocket so I was a bit surprised about this report...
POOR LI'L RICH PARIS IS FREE
DITZ AN OUTRAGE: MEDICAL EXCUSE LETS HER LEAVE JAIL FOR HOUSE ARREST AFTER JUST 3 DAYS

June 8, 2007 -
LYNWOOD, Calif. - Despondent jailbird Paris Hilton, teetering on the brink of a nervous breakdown, was plucked from her cell yesterday after serving just three days behind bars, and returned to her personal lap of luxury, outraging prosecutors who vowed to lock her up again.
The judge who ordered Hilton jailed has ordered an emergency court session this morning to hear prosecutors' demand that the hotel heiress check back into prison.
As it stands now, Hilton has the blessing of Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca to serve out her 45-day jail sentence under house arrest - wearing an electronic ankle bracelet inside her gated, Spanish-style mansion in the hills above the Sunset Strip.
When Judge Michael Sauer sentenced Hilton last month, he specifically - in a handwritten addition to his printed order - ruled out work-furlough programs, electronic monitoring and other non-jail options.
In an extraordinary motion filed yesterday, prosecutors asked Sauer to hold the L.A. County Sheriff's Department in contempt and send Hilton back to jail immediately.
Hilton has been ordered to appear in court, where she might be hauled away again.
"Time is of the essence to ensure compliance with this court's order and to restore public confidence," according to a request penned by prosecutors Dan Jeffries and David Bozanich. Their boss, L.A. City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, ripped Sheriff Baca and accused him of practicing "two-tiered" justice.
"We cannot tolerate a two-tiered jail system where the rich and powerful receive special treatment," Delgadillo said.
The Sheriff's Department, which runs jails, cited unspecified medical reasons for allowing Hilton to check out early.
"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 L.A. Times, adding, "Punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice."
Law-enforcement officials are legally barred from disclosing the heirhead's condition.
Hilton's lawyer and publicist could not immediately be reached for comment yesterday, leaving her medical condition still unclear.
But a member of the jail's medical team told The Post that Hilton was let go because she was on the verge on a nervous breakdown.
"She was crying a lot," the medical provider said. "She's in lockdown 23 hours. She was depressed."
Hilton's well-connected hot-shot shrink, Dr. Charles Sophy, made extended house calls to the pretty jailbird on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Baca's spokesman, Steve Whitmore, insisted Hilton didn't receive preferential treatment and wasn't technically released from custody. He spun the discharge as a "reassignment."
Authorities also say Hilton was credited with five days in prison - including Sunday night and yesterday morning - even though her actual time amounted to little more than three days.
Hilton's clandestine, middle-of-the-night flight from jail sparked outrage from coast to coast:
* The L.A. union representing county jailers blasted their boss, Baca.
"On any give day, a thousand female inmates are in custody. Why is one case, out of the blue, treated any different than them?" asked Steve Remige, president of the Association of Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs.
* L.A. County Supervisor Mike Antonovich hammered both Hilton and the sheriff, calling her early release "a mockery of due process."
"You're dealing with a spoiled brat acting out to get her way instead of serving her time as was adjudicated by the courts," he said.
* The Rev. Al Sharpton said a poor or minority inmate wouldn't have received the same favorable treatment.
"I think that it's both another glaring display of how race and money seem to get different treatments. There seems to be a different criminal-justice system for some than others," Sharpton said.
* Celebrity-dedicated Web sites exploded in Paris postings, with an overwhelming majority of posters ripping the early release.
House arrest in L.A. typically confines inmates to their homes, with only preapproved trips to doctors, job interviews and probation officers.
However, home-jailed inmates usually have no curfew, can drink alcohol and have any visitor they want.
A friend of the "Simple Life" star told OK! magazine that Paris, against the advice of counsel, was planning a huge bash at her home.
"Paris had an awful five days in prison," her pal said. "She wants to see her friends and have fun. She's been punished enough already."
As of late last night, only a few people had dropped by, including her parents; her aunt Kyle Richards; her sister, Nicky, and family pal and movie producer David Katzenberg.
Asked how the former jailbird is doing, Richards said, "Not well, not great," adding, "I'm worried about her."
Paris has arranged for a personal dresser and makeup artist to visit her house this afternoon to ensure she looks good.
"It's so cruel what has happened to her," the friend told OK! "She wasn't allowed to wax or use a moisturizer. Her skin is so dry right now!"
Another Hilton aunt, Francesca Hilton, told Us magazine that parents Rick and Kathy had planned to visit their daughter in jail this weekend, "but now, we will have to have a party."
While Hilton spent just three nights in Century Regional Detention Center, she was apparently a handful during her short stint in cell No. 23.
"I saw her yesterday. She was speaking with the sergeant and she looked torn up [emotionally] . . . but she still looks gorgeous," said inmate Elana Lamb, who was released from the same jail yesterday, also with an ankle bracelet.
Hilton repeatedly pressed a medical-alert button, making herself a major nuisance, inmates said.
"She was just whining," said Lamb, 38. "She was complaining she was cold and hungry - and she didn't even get regular food. She got officers' dining food."
The early release ticked off inmates, who believe Hilton abused her influence.
"I've seen girls in there with seizures," said released inmate Cynthia Chavez, 53, who scoffed at Hilton's medical excuse. "They have a little hospital room up there where [prisoners] get treatment."
Hilton was serving time for violating the probation of a drunken-driving conviction.
Her early departure wasn't completely out of line with L.A. jail policy. Due to overcrowding, inmates often serve less than 20 percent of their sentences - although Hilton didn't even do 10 percent.

If she DOES go back to jail, she's in for a world of hurt. She should have just sucked it up and did her time with a smidgeon of humility (I know its HER, and this just proves that she is just a raging self-centered idiot).
She pissed off, and thumbed her nose at too many of the wrong people all in one doing.
Wow. I did not know that the Sheriff can overide a judge's ruling on punishment. Apparently, a lot of states have this. This is totally fucked up. Why even have judges then?

TMZ has confirmed that Paris will appear at her hearing today via telephone.
We've also learned that LAPD is turning people away from Hilton's West Hollywood home who don't have the proper press credentials. Luckily, we do.
It says sluce gets off easy and is a good time. Cash ONLY. Sluce ... and a cast of many
Bitch couldn't even be bothered to show up in court? I hope she goes down a long time for this shit, and take tht dumbass sheriff with her.

Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
It is so sad that all the country is talking about right now is Paris Hilton.
people have been FLOODING the lapd dept with complaints
What happened to all her fans?
*I thinks she's hideous, but apparently some find her pretty.
It is pretty sad that all the media outlets have non-stop Paris Hilton coverage. But, maybe just this once, there is actually a news story here. There is a huge difference in punishment between The Haves and The Have-Nots in this country and it's quite evident here in LA.
Picara, we think alike
