    Judge orders celebrity inmate to serve her 45-day sentence in jail

    Associated Press


    LOS ANGELES — She was taken handcuffed and crying from her home. She was escorted into court disheveled, without makeup, hair askew and face red with tears.

    Crying out for her mother when she was ordered back to jail, Paris Hilton's cool, glamorous image evaporated Friday as she gave the impression of a little girl lost in a merciless legal system.

    "It's not right!" shouted the weeping Hilton. "Mom!" she called out to Kathy Hilton, who also was in tears.

    The 26-year-old hotel heiress tried to move toward her parents but was firmly steered away by two sheriff's deputies, who held her by each arm and hustled her from the courtroom.

    Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer was apparently unmoved by the pleas of Hilton's three lawyers to send her back to home confinement due to an unspecified medical condition. He ordered Hilton returned to a Los Angeles County jail to serve out the remainder of her 45-day sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

    The judge gave no explanation for his ruling. But his comments throughout the hearing showed he was affronted by county Sheriff Lee Baca's decision to set aside his instructions and release Hilton after three days in jail to finish her time in the luxury of her Hollywood Hills home.

    Her lawyers said the reason for her release was an unspecified medical condition. The judge suggested that could be taken care of at jail medical facilities.

    The sheriff later hinted at a news conference that Hilton had psychological problems, and said she would be watched in jail "so that there isn't anything that is harmfully done to herself by herself."

    Following the hearing, Hilton was taken to a correctional treatment center at the downtown Twin Towers jail for medical and psychiatric examination to determine which facility she will be held in, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

    "She'll be there for at least a couple of days," he said.

    The sheriff later defended his decision, citing jail crowding (although Hilton was in special unit and did not have a cellmate) and what he termed "severe medical problems."

    He said he had learned from one of her doctors that she was not taking a certain medication while previously in custody, and that her "inexplicable deterioration" puzzled county psychiatrists.

    Baca also charged that Hilton received a more severe sentence than the usual penalty for such a crime, but said he would not try to overrule Sauer's decision again.

    "The criminal justice system should not create a football out of Ms. Hilton's status," the sheriff said grimly at a press conference.

    After being taken to court in a black-and-white police car, paparazzi sprinting in pursuit and helicopters broadcasting live from above, Hilton entered the courtroom weeping and continued to cry throughout the hearing, which lasted more than an hour.

    Her blond hair was pulled back in a disheveled knot, in contrast to the glamorous side-swept style in her booking photo from earlier in the week. She was wrapped in a long gray fuzzy sweatshirt over slacks.

    The parents

    Her body shook constantly as she dabbed at her eyes. Several times she turned to her parents, seated behind her in the courtroom, and mouthed, "I love you." At one point, she made the sign of the cross and appeared to be praying.

    Despite being reincarcerated, she 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 custody days. It appeared that Friday would count as her sixth day.

    Friday's hearing was delayed by a misunderstanding. Hilton apparently thought she was going to be able to participate from home by telephone. But the judge, who had not authorized that, angrily denounced a media outlet for spreading that rumor, although a court spokesman also gave that information to news media. He ordered sheriff's deputies to go to Hilton's home and bring her to court. The process took nearly two hours.

    Once the hearing began, Sauer was blunt in his criticism of the sheriff for disobeying his orders, which specifically banned home confinement with electronic monitoring.

    "I at no time condoned the actions of the sheriff and at no time told him I approved the actions," he 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.

    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.

    What made this whole thing so pitiful is that they showed the police car taking her back to jail on Fox News. And played it as breaking news. Someone explain to me how that's breaking news.

    Paris Hilton Fans Devastated by Ruling
    Jun 8, 4:47 PM EST

    The Associated Press
    LOS ANGELES -- "No! No! No!"
    The scream erupted from Paris Hilton fan Jake Byrd as news spread outside the courthouse that the celebutante had been ordered back to jail.
    Byrd was among dozens of Hilton supporters who converged on the downtown courthouse before the hearing. He held a sign reading "Let her live" on one side and "Liberate Paris" on the other. Overhead, an airplane towed a banner reading "We Love Paris."
    "She is America's Princess Di," Byrd said.

    I think i've been missing the boat with this whole Dallas Cowboys thing. I think i'll drop sports, join old Jake and become a Paris Hilton fan. :banghead: Who needs Americas Team when you have "America's Princess Di,"?!?!?!:shoot6:

    My Take

    Miss Hilton will serve her time, it will suck really bad for the caliber person she is.

    There are tons of people who have done the what Paris has done and served 10 times the amount of time in jail or Prison for the same crime and they will never have a voice.

    I am neutral about PH, I'm not laughing at her, I'm not crying for her.


    I will say what every one else is thinking...

    The legal system in the USA is "Chuck Up!"

    I am angry right now for two reasons...

    The Media is brain dead and the legal system is a house of cards in the wake of Katrina.

    The media is far more guilty than PH will ever be, but we don't have a system to put them on trial for their crimes of disinformation and disception.

    She is famous for being a celeb... she has no talent unless you consider being rich a talent...

    She screwed the pooch with her over-reaction. The judge is giving her the full boat now... as he should...

    The sheriff is being considered for contempt. I assume the Hilton family dug up skeletons on him.

    Her psychiatrist says she is suicidal... ummm... so what...

    Obviously she can't deal with anything approaching the real world. What use is she... really...

    I can't stand the fact that this girl is famous and rich while I work my *** off and struggle...she had a sex tape and is rich...nice. Hell, give me a camera and I will make a few girls "famous".

    I cannot help but laugh as she is put back into prison where she needs to be...she had her chances and she ignored them thinking she was above the law and now she cannot deal with the consequences.

    What she has to go through, I would consider a vacation...she gets to relax and read all day while not getting put in general damn stressful...

    as for the sheriff. I think they dropped some money in his bank account.

    If I were Paris Hilton, I would rejoice at the thought of my own private prison cell. Its a shame that Sister Fister wont be allowed to make her normal rounds.

    You'd think she got 20 years with her dramatic overreaction. Not to mention the picture of her mother, who needed help to walk back to (I'll assume) their waiting limo.

    Boo-hoo. Medical condition my butt....not unless being a worthless bimbo has suddenly been designated as a medical condition.

    If I were in her situation my family would not be boo-hooing for me to get early release - they'd say I deserve to serve my time (and learn a lesson) and stop doing stupid things like that.

    This is a good opportunity for her to learn a real life lesson. But I doubt if that happens.

    Can everyone just please stop talking about her.

    I will never get the fascination over her. I cannot stand that this is big news to so many people, but the stories elsewhere like Iraq and starvation in Africa are put to side.

    I'm not just talking about her, but also all the celebrities.

    Get rid of all the paparazzi. Like your job is taking pictures of a movie star or musician? Are you serious?

    It's ridiculous, but it's what the average American idiot wants. The media wouldn't be doing what they are doing if there was no money in it.

    Some random thoughts on these latest developments:

    1) Poor Paris thinks "this isn't right"?? What, does she think she ought to be allowed to ignore the law, and continue driving after she got her license suspended for drunk driving??

    Listen up, fool, just because your daddy's rich, it doesn't logically follow that you get to ignore the laws of the land... if that daddy failed to teach you that your actions have consequences, that's HIS failing, not the law's... it may be that this judge is the best friend you ever had...

    2) This airhead stops taking her medications, and the sheriff thinks that's reason enough to let her walk away from jail?? Even after the judge specifically ordered that she not be allowed to serve the sentence on home detention?? He SHOULD be charged with contempt, and he should be punished for it...

    3) That same joke of a sheriff says that 45 days for 2 convictions on driving on a suspended license is unfairly harsh?? It seemed like little more than a slap on the wrist to me...

    Without having any basis for so speculating, I find myself cynically wondering if some Hilton money didn't find its way into that sheriff's wallet...

    4) Sure am glad that judge did the right thing, I was semi-annoyed when they let Little Miss Vapid Princess out in the first place...

    But Paris got this way in the first place because her parents have clearly never taught her about her responsibilities to be a good citizen...

    You're absolutely right, they should be taking a hard line with her, not continuing to indulge her... no wonder she things that justice "isn't right"... no wonder she fell apart when it finally dawned on her that she really couldn't do anything she wants, any time she wants...

    I'd like to think that she'd learn something from all of this, but I'm pretty sure she'll still be convinced she's an innocent victim of a corrupt justice system when she leaves jail... which means this may not be her last visit there...

    Excuse me for enjoying it when some rich bimbo who thinks she's above the law gets her comeuppance...

    Not that I don't take your point about her 15 minutes of fame being long ago used up... it would suit me just fine if we never heard from her again after she finishes serving this sentence, but of course that ain't gonna happen...

    Seems to me the stories like that are still getting plenty of media coverage...

    You have a point about tabloid journalism today, but you're tilting at windmills, Don Quixote... it ain't about to change...

    Thank God for the multi generational wealth of the Hilton family that has made a HUGH contribution to our global economy.

    Every black white brown yellow and purple with pink poka dot poor boy dreams about making such an great mark on the earth like the Hilton family.

    One child by birth to a mega empire makes a mistake and the media and legal system strikes out at the Hilton legacy!?

    Look at your own family media scums.

    Before you pass judgement on the Hiltons and their children...

    Look at your own family CBZ readers.

    What have you done?


    I look forward to great things happening in the future with the transference of wealth from one generation to the next.

    From one culture to another.

    From one faith to the next.

    From the foolish man to the wise.

    The sands are shifting....the sea rises and falls.

    There are alot of things that are pathetic about this.

    1.) Paris Hilton herself. I honestly feel helf-bad for the girl. You can tell by seeing her, and particularly in those pics from her being hauled away, that the girl isn't developed emotionally or mentally much past that ofa child. Heck, she might be hiding retardation, we don't know. In any case, I'd certainly wager that her upbringing has been horrible, and is a large reason for her current state.

    2.) This isn't "news". This is why I don't watch "news", or ESPN, or any other network outlet. There's no reason to pay attention to this, yet there it is, every day. But hey, we're the ones who made her "royalty", we don't really deserve to complain.

    3.) The reaction of most people. Elated to see this girl go to jail. And why? Simply because they are dissatisfied with their lives, and envy her, because she doesn't have to work for a living? Her parents took care of that for her, and I'm sure if any of us can manage it, we'd love to do the same for our children. People should really work more on being content with their own lives, and working on improving them if need be, than mongering for the heads of athletes and millionaires just because they envy them. These people aren't any happier with their millions than you are.

    While I agree with your opinion of her possible level of emotional development, I strongly disagree with you about her possible retardation. Heck, I'll write off the possibility of mild retardation.

    Forget her family's vast fortune. She's simply a spoiled brat. There are many like her, male and female, around the world, who don't necessarily have as many zero's attached to their bank account as hers. It's not her fault that she's a spoiled brat. Lay that at her parents' feet.

    From what little I have followed of her life, it wouldn't surprise me at all that she ends up in legal trouble again at some point. Her reactions radiate an air of, "I'm going to do what I want to do, so there!" The young woman has done "reality tv" :rolleyes:, plays extremely to the cameras whenever possible (examples: caught dancing on tables, attempting to ride motorcycles without an previous training in a crowd of people, wearing the shortest skirts possible knowing full well that she doesn't have any panties on, etc.) and has knowingly created and distributed a sex tape.

    The young woman knows what's she's doing. She ain't stupid. Let her reap what she sows.

    It's the almighty buck driven media and her legion (but minority) of fans who have proclaimed her as royalty for their separate reasons. She's no Princess Di, who actually accomplished worthwhile goals which she believed in before the media (and her drunk limo driver) killed her. Maybe this spoiled brat will finally 'get it' and evolve into another Princess Diana, but she's a LONG way from being one right now.

    In my case, it's satisfaction, pure and simple. The legal system is 'supposed' to be equal for everyone. She committed a crime. She willingly violated the terms of her punishment several times. She was incarcerated for it, found a way to circumvent it, but ultimately failed. The system lived up to its own standards. This time. yay.
