Paris Hilton Released From Jail After 3 Days

From FOXNews:

Citing ‘Medical’ Reasons, Sheriff Sends Paris Hilton Home to Finish Sentence

Thursday, June 07, 2007

After serving only three full days behind bars, Paris Hilton was released from jail early Thursday, partly due to “medical” reasons — but she has been fitted with an ankle bracelet and must remain confined to her home for 40 days.

“She’s confined to her home for 40 days,” sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said at a press conference Thursday morning, adding that her electronic monitoring device has a range of 3,000 to 4,000 feet.

Hilton was originally sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case, but had been expected to serve 23 days because of state rules allowing shorter sentences for good behavior.

Whitmore said under the new agreement, Hilton would be confined to her home for 40 days.

“Because she has agreed to this through her attorney, her sentence is now back up to the 45 days. She has served already five days so that’s 40 days,” he explained, including the time she served on Sunday night and Thursday as “days.”

On the heels of reports that Hilton had been crying in jail and receiving visits from her psychiatrist, reporters at the press conference seemed to think that the heiress had manipulated her jailers.

Whitmore didn’t fully deny this accusation. When one reporter asked him, “What’s your comment to people who say she played you like a puppet on a string — she came in here, didn’t like it, it was hard and she got out?” he replied, “Once again, I just think that’s a different way of saying it, only the language is a little more — liquid. I would simply say that I understand that.”

The sheriff’s spokesman would not elaborate on Hilton’s medical issues, nor would he say if they were physical or psychological. He added that the decision to send Hilton home was based on dozens of consultations and discussions over a period of three or four days…

But “Scooter” Libby will serve his full sentence of two and a half years.

This is justice in America in the year 2007.
