Hilton Faces Hearing Today

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A Los Angeles County supervisor says he's gotten hundreds of e-mails from people angry that Paris Hilton got of jail early.

Don Knabe says it "gives the impression of celebrity justice being handed out."

But Hilton may be back behind bars soon. She's been ordered to court today for a hearing sought by prosecutors. They want sheriff's officials held in contempt for releasing the hotel heiress early. She had served just three days of a 45-day sentence for a probation violation.

Hilton was fitted with a monitoring bracelet and ordered to serve the rest of the time under house arrest at her posh Hollywood Hills home.

Sheriff Lee Baca says she was released because of an undisclosed medical condition. Baca has a message to those who don't like celebrities: "punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice."

    "Punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice" Well neither is letting them get away with more than the average American! Celebrities get away with underage drinking, underage drug use, underage driving, they literally get away with murder!

    With Anna Nicole being dead, we need someone's misadventures to follow so that we don't pay any attention to real news.

    It is unfair that she can get off and if it was us they would throw the book at us.They only reason why she was crying is because she got caught not because she is sorry for what she did.When you do something wrong it shouldn't matter who you are or how rich you are,you still broke the law.

    There is way too much coverage......what has she done for society that makes her worthy of this coverage?

    Who ever was the Judge that let Paris out early should have to pay the bill

    Put her back in jail and make her start her sentence over again without any credit for time spent.

    Who is the sheriff to decide what is justice ? It is out of his/her rights and duties. The court decided justice. The US constitution is not interpreted by the sheriff dept. It is a contempt not only of the court but the constitution as well.
