TMZ is on top of this developing story.


    Paris Hilton has been fitted for ankle bracelet and reassigned to house arrest, after authorities decided to release Hilton from jail due to medical reasons, this according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept. spokesperson, Steve Whitmore.

    Reporters hammered away about Paris' medical condition during a press conference in front of the jail, where she was released early this morning, but Whitmore said he could not discuss even the slightest health-related details due to confidentiality laws.

    Paris will be under house confinement in her West Hollywood home for 40 days, where she has a 3000-4000 ft. radius of freedom. Her jail cell was 96 square feet. After the 40 days are up, Whitmore says she will have "fulfilled her debt to society."

On the bright side, maybe we're trading 20-some days of schadenfreude.. for Paris becoming something of a public pariah - which if it works out that way, is good enough for me. Time for the heiress to deliver on her promise to "retire from public life", which I think her self-suggested deadline of 2 years(?) has come and gone.

But it's probably not gonna play well with the inner-city.

Maybe when Nicole Richie goes before the court for her DUI charges, they'll throw her straight into hardcore lesbo raping prison.

Shit like this pisses me off cause stupid people with money get away with EVERYTHING (OJ, Robert Blake, et al...) while the little people have to pay for the shit they do wrong. It sucks!

Apparently, Paris's release is news to the L.A. City Attorney and the judge. Therefore, a hearing is set for tomorrow that could potentially put Paris back in jail.

Judge to Paris: Get back here!


    TMZ has learned that a judge has ordered Paris Hilton back to his Los Angeles courtroom, telling her she must attend tomorrow morning's hearing. She could be sent BACK to the slammer!!


Well, this has gone from a very irritating story to a pretty interesting one. Stay tuned.

    "Paris was apparently suffering from severe panic attacks and depression, where she even became suicidal. Towards the end of her stay, Paris began, what others call, a nervous breakdown. Her psychiatrist was so concerned for her well being they did everything possible to get her to a place in which was comfortable for her and her health."

    What do we have, voluntary [expletive] prisons in LA now? No [expletive] she didn't like it and freaked out, that's the point.

I have nothing to say that WWTDD hasn't already said.

So if she was having mental health issues shouldn't she be placed into a hospital, instead of sent home? I hope they send her back today.

TMZ keeps bringing the updates, with the latest one being that Paris will attend her hearing via telephone.


    TMZ has confirmed that Paris will appear at her hearing today via telephone.


Of course, this comes the morning after the judge said she MUST be in court. At least she didn't have her publicist attend the hearing for her. This comes much to the chagrin of the City Attorney.

Seriously, I hope the judge holds her in contempt and keeps her in jail even longer. I know the term "circus" is thrown around a lot in these types of cases, but is there really any other appropriate word for this? This is a mockery.

CNN says she has to go.


    Friday morning, Parachini said Hilton would be allowed to take part in the hearing by telephone, but Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer stuck to his original order.

From what I've heard, it's a big conflict between the sheriff's office and the judge. The judge originally said that that she couldn't have house arrest, work release, or anything other than jail time. The sheriff's office then put her on house arrest anyway. Then someone (maybe the sheriff's office again?) said that she would be allowed to to participate by telephone, but the judge said no. Then the sheriff's office refused to go to her house and pick her up, claiming that the judge doesn't have the authority to override her house arrest. But that must have gotten worked out, because law enforcement officers did eventually show up at her house, handcuff her and drive her to the courthouse.

According to People.com it's "back to jail".

They also have a nice picture of her crying in the back of the squad car.

How about "WEALTHY; HIT IN PRISON"? Or "IN LA PRISON, WHY TITHE"? Or "WRAITH SHONE NIL PITY"? There are apparently 55,553 more of varying intelligibility.

I don't mean to sound bitter or rude or anything, but when the rich and famous break the law, they should be just as subject to getting beaten, raped, and murdered by hardened career criminals as the little guy.

They screwed up, they shouldn't be exempt from being Fresh Meat.

The ultimate punishment is simple. Collectively ignore her. Whenever a Paris story comes on, I just turn to a different station or turn it off.

I just don't care what she does. It seems stupid to me to waste all this time and effort on an absolutely morally bankrupt and shallow human being.

And would they give 45 days in jail for an average joe or was it done because she was famous?

Glad you asked, this has been grinding my gears a bit

As the sheriff said, the L.A. county standard procedure is to lock up non-felons for about 10% of their sentence, then release. Maybe a short period of home confinement. So in that limited, specific sense, Paris is getting treated worse than the average common L.A. criminal.

But when this issue gets thrashed around on the news channels, I'm begging for just one talking head to ask: Does this mean anyone believes that rich and famous people get treated harsher by the criminal justice system?

It's so obviously "no", that I'm presuming that no one on camera is allowed to make the point, for fear of ending the argument.

Of course the judge could still rule differently, but it seems a jury of people with common sense have made the right decision. Now, if only these rediculous lawsuits could just go away or be banned altogether(Dems threaten a filibuster on that one too.
