Paris Hilton released early from jail based on "medical considerations"

As detailed in this CNN article, "Paris Hilton was let out of jail Thursday morning, days after she began serving what was to have been a 45-day sentence for violating probation, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said."  Here are more specifics:

Hilton must wear a monitoring bracelet and remain at her home for another 40 days, said sheriff's department spokesman Steve Whitmore.  Medical considerations "played a part" in the decision to offer Hilton home confinement for the remainder of her sentence, Whitmore said.

He said privacy rules prohibited him from giving details about the medical issues, but celebrity Web site TMZ.com earlier quoted sources saying Hilton was refusing to eat much of the jail food served her.

Whitmore said that after "extensive consultation with medical personnel" it was decided to offer Hilton "reassignment" to home confinement, which she and her attorneys accepted.

The questions this news prompts are nearly endless:

Um, "Stac," it was the LA County Sheriff's Department that "put her back on the streets," as you put it. The DA had nothing to do with it.

voluntary prison...?

I'm sure there's a case note somewhere in the Harvard Law Review arguing for that.

I bet the "pain in the neck" factor had a lot to do with her release. Problem solved.

Apparently, she may have been "suicidal."

Late Thursday, the prosecutor filed a motion to have the Sheriff's Department held in contempt, and for Hilton to be returned to jail to serve the balance of the hearing. A hearing on the motion is now set for tomorrow morning.

I was found guilty (No contest) of a 3rd DUI in 1996. I received the mandatory mininum 120 day sentence for no insurance and no licence and .08 dui. I spent 3 days in jail just like Paris + 120 days work release. After a one year avoidance of jail time for having a attorney who continued extensions of the case. I was sentenced. I served 120 days in a work release program in South Central LA. I lived in a converted convelesant home that had cable TV, internet access and some really nice white collar residents. I went to my job everyday and came home to the center. I wacthed HBO and played ping pong most evenings. The cafeteria was great and so was the guards. I actually enjoyed my stay. I was in jail, but I could walk out anytime. It was better than the dorms at my college. I made some great friends and my probation officer let me out for the weekends to take care of my home and see my girlfriend. Although it was a bad time of my life, it was bareble. Paris Hilton deserves the same treatment.

Paris gets out after 3 days and Padilla has been in 5 years and the court finds that he is perfectly sane. Unbelievable.

Jail hurt her health for sure. Maybe jail mans make this because they hate Paris.

She always have had this kind of troubles, but even though, she is my idol, because she is natural no matter where she is.

Where's S.cotus when you need him (or her)? Does my proposal to seize members of the family's property "work corruption of Blood"
