Paris Free. . .ish
She's served less than 75 hours of her sentence, but Paris Hilton is already out of jail and headed home.
"Paris Hilton has been fitted for an ankle bracelet and put under house arrest, after authorities determined to release Hilton from prison due to medical reasons," An L.A. County spokesperson said.
Apparently Paris had developed a rash on her body. There have been reports of high incidents of staph infection at that particular facility, but given that infection comes thorough contact, it would seem unlikely that a person in solitary could have caught it.
She released a statement thanking the L.A. County Sheriff's Department and the Detention Centre staff for treating her "fairly" and "professionally".
"I am going to serve the remaining 40 days of my sentence. I have learned a great deal from this ordeal and hope that others have learned from my mistakes."
Paris' release has caused outrage in many circles.
"This incident with Paris Hilton is just the most recent that highlights the problems our criminal justice system has with making sure sentences stick, whether it is in a County jail or under electronic monitoring," said L.A. County Supervisor, Don Knabe.
L.A. City Prosecutor, Rocky Delgadillo has lodged papers demanding a hearing to determine why the heiress has been allowed out of jail in spite of the judges explicit orders that she serve out her entire sentence.
"I have directed my criminal branch to immediately explore all possible legal options to ensure that the law is being applied equally and justly in this case,'' stated Delgadillo.
The hearing - which Paris must attend - has been scheduled to take place within the next day or so.
Paris may head back to the slammer yet.
