What they really mean is that everyone in the prison was sick of her.
Paris Hilton has been released from chokey after just three days of her 23-day sentence for violating probation on a drink-drive rap, TMZ.com reports. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore told a press conference the early uncaging was due to medical reasons, but declined to elaborate on the "health- …
And the other girl on the same charge in the "not a celebrity" section? she released too?
Oh how easy it is to buy a verdict when you're parents are rich, and avoid really paying your debt. considering her house size 400 metres around it covers most of beverly hills anyway
insult to non parole violators everywhere
Who would have guessed the socialite would be out of chokey with only a handful of lipgloss inscribed digits on her cell wall.
"Hilton will be confined to within roughly 3,000-4,000 feet of her West Hollywood home for 40 days"
Party at hers for the next 40 days then? Who is going to bring the porridge?
Wow. A 40 day sentence reduced to 23 days for "good behaviour" i.e. turning up to the hearing and now reduced to 3 days for "unspecified medical reasons". If she's ill shouldn't she be in a hospital? Ah no my mistake the "unspecified medical reasons" are that she's rich, famous, white and it's entirely unfair to expect anyone rich, famous and white to serve out their sentence. That's for poor, ordinary black people.
It wouldn't be American Justice if it wasn't blatantly biased and corrupt.
%&$ damned (^%ing *&^
What a waste of time.
I didnt realise pulling a sicky worked in prison.
Im going to the pub to drink 18 pints and drive into a crowded bus stop now... Then have the flu when I get to jail - that means they give me a nice ankle watch looking thing and i have to play lots of xbox ... PAH!
As someone who today was run over on their bike by a careless driver, I find the very idea that a traffic offender - who persistently reoffends - can be let out of prison after just a few days to be a vile miscarriage of justice.
Quite often, innocent people are held on remand for months on end whilst their case comes to trial. What comfort will they get from this news?
Can the local police at least make sure that she does not accrue any more parking tickets whilst under house arrest? Somehow I doubt it.
What a sham.
I am glad to see that our justice system has cleared the way for her to treat her medical condition. Let me put on my Dr. Welby hat and try to make some possible long-distance diagnosis. Here goes:
3rd Degree Burns caused by non-satin sheets used in prison bedding
Irritated Colon due to repeated Anal probes looking for contraband caviar smuggled in.
Yeast infection due to improper wiping as her personal assistant was not allowed access to her cell.
Brain Damage inflicted by having to spend time alone with her thoughts or lack thereof.
The truth may never be known - but I wish her well on her recovery from whatever life-threatening medical condition may exist.
Once again I get to laugh at America's expense. For a country that considers itself to be the land of the free - the only *really* free people are those with stacks of money.
Corruption is not uncommon in the USA and I would imagine it extends far beyond the news that you and I get to read. Yhy should the justice department be an exception?
Can you really not see what is going on here? Miss Hilton isn't using her wealth and priviledges to flout the law, she's drawing attention to the injustices that are done by these tools of the rich and famous!
It's obvious when you look at how she made sure she'd get jail time by breaking the law in a mild but comprehensive fashion. She left herself without a defence. Brave girl!
She knew with the eyes of the world on her she could put a spotlight on how unfair and biased the system is and how easily exploited.
She really is the people's porn star.
Who really cares that much anyway? In <100 years, she'll be utterly forgotten, as she should be, and as most of us will be as well. I'm a little ashamed that I spent a few minutes caring enough to even write this... The very rich are not like you or I. (To the person who thought that her being white had something to do with it: *cough* O.J. Simpson) To quote a guy I used to work with: "It's easy to end up in jail when you're poor" (he was and had been)
I'm not saying there isn't corruption involved in some way but I don't actually see any evidence that there is. Is it possible that the very rich get life threatening illnesses too? I don't think there is enough information here to draw a conclusion from, if it does turn out that her medical condtion was minor then there should be an outcry but shouldn't we wait until we actually know something before making our minds up about it?
I hate Paris Hilton with a passion but not because she's rich and adds nothing to the human race, I hate her because she is a truly horrible person with no care for anyone but herself (I know plenty of poor people who are the same, there's probably a common cause but it definitely isn't money). Anyway, what I'm trying to say is: hate the person not the lifestyle, lots of rich white people serve quite serious prison time, seriously look it up, you'll see
Rant over, sorry that wasn't very cohesive but I felt like I needed to vent
Really, people. If this "medical condition" was serious enough to warrant removing her from the Graybar Motel, she (as a repeat offender with an obvious contempt for the rule of law) should be in hospital with an armed guard or two on the door, not lounging it up in her palatial bloody mansion!
In the UK, we'd *never* let someone rich out of prison early for dubious medical reasons, with or without the assistance of a well-paid doctor
Now, I'll just go and toast British justice with a nice glass of Guinness, if I can only remember where I put it.
Here is the problem with that theory.
If she had a valid medical complaint, then why is the world just told "medical reasons"?
Its not like she hasn't flaunted her entire body worldwide.
They knew the world would react this way. Also, usually these problems just don't suddenly appear unless self inflicted. If she had a severe medical issue prior to this, it would have probably been brought up in the courts before she was actually jailed.
If it is self inflicted, then we should probably ship her off in a nice white jacket for 40 days, rather than a cozy mansion where she could have all kinds of fun items stashed.
Nope... she conducted herself horribly getting into this mess, was even more childish and ultimately lame during the court proceedings and now she's slinked out of jail due to hazy medical issues.
She's not going to the hospital, not to the shrink.. she's going home.
Sometimes, you just have to call the black kettle black.
if you don't know who she is... you are blessed.
if you do know who she is... you're obviously in hell [ eternal suffering results].
if you care about what happened...how can you not be disgusted by the all-inclusive shite regarding everything she is/has done?
no clue who said it,mind, but it's apropos... "the boat sank, get over it"
it may be a ref to the titanic, but it works.
too bad the media is so lazy they can't find any real news, and need trulls to headline their industry.
OJ Simpson couldn't be tried fairly because the police corrupted the evidence of his trial. It is an excellent example of how racism in the justice system can obstruct the truth and let people get away with just about anything.
Soooooo, your example is completely bogus. Find a better one, like Michael Jackson.. if you dare.
Race can still apply. America used to be very pro- white. I do have to say tho, being white isn't so helpful today if you're not super rich and charismatic. Just turn on any episode of Cops after 2004. It's racist against poor whites now.

I'm only surprised that she actually spent even one night in the Ironbar Hotel...
Now, as to her house arrest... Let's get real here... Why should she serve it in her own mansion... er, home ... LA County should put her in a typical single family home, visitors limited to immediate family and her attorney, and a county medical officer if necessary ... no parties and no alcohol or drugs in the house... and she can't be more than 200 feet from the house. If she feels she needs police guards to protect her from the neighbors and paparazzi, fine... but they stay outside the house, and she has to pay overtime rates for them. Oh, and she pays market rates to rent the house...
Please remember, it was Sheriff Lee Baca who release Hilton, not Paris herself.
Baca is the typical right wing minority hassling crap most places have for sheriff (yes, I have heard of personal encounters). The LA County Sheriff department does the same things as the LAPD, but hasn't been caught in a big one yet.
I'm no celebrity pimp or fan. I see them a lot, and they're too skinny, but I think those people that constantly dump on them should get a life of their own. Really, the rest of us are tired of hearing and reading you work out the dissatisfaction you have with your own lives in practically violent hatred of people just because they might get on the covers of a few tabloids.
BTW, While you're shopping for a life, look for a brain, too. You are being led around by the nose by the less than honest tabloid and gossip industry.
I bet you don't know that every national tabloid in the US is put out by the exact same company. There is no competition.
Most gossip sites just repeat what the tabloids put out.
It's all one small group of people playing games with your minds.
And, unfortunately, they've shown that it's easy to do.
