Paris goes back to jail

Gee… it seems in the original sentencing, the judge specifically stated no house arrest for Ms. Hilton. And now, the judge is saying he never signed off on this release, and there is no documentation that this mysterious “medical condition” even exists.

She has been sent back to the jail, sobbing and screaming… literally, and will serve out the remainder of her sentence.

Several people, on this blog, in my LiveJournal, and in person have asked me why I am so outraged over this. Is it because of who she is? Partially. The other part is she very clearly violated her probation. The above linked article lays it out quite clearly:

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.

There is no ambiguity here. She was on probation, her license was suspended, she was pulled over twice while driving on said suspended license. Her sentence is in line with the crime, she simply doesn’t feel she should serve it. Yes, this whole thing is beyond silly, but nothing changes the matter that she broke the law. Period. She now has to do her time like anyone else.

I really want an investigation launched into this Sheriff’s role in this whole thing. Something is very, very fishy about why he felt he could release her to home custody without the say-so of the court.
