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."
