If You're Pissed Over Paris, Don't Blame the Judge!

6/7/2007 5:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The decision to move Paris Hilton to house arrest was made entirely by the L.A. Sheriff's Department.
Paris' sentencing doc
TMZ has confirmed that Judge Michael T. Sauer was informed of the Sheriff's decision before Hilton was reassigned to house arrest, but the Judge only responded by reaffirming the terms he imposed on May 4.

We spoke to Allan Parachini, Public Information Officer for the Los Angeles County Courts, who advises that "All decisions on incarceration are made by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department once a sentence is imposed."

So don't tell it to the judge.

UPDATE:
Allan Parachini addressed the media outside of a Los Angeles County Courthouse regarding Paris Hilton's early release today, and reiterated that the court did not sanction the early release of Miss Hilton. He added that the Sheriff's Department contacted Judge Sauer on June 6 and asked him to change his sentence to allow electronic monitoring for Hilton. He declined, sticking by his original sentence, which clearly nixed that type of punishment.

There is no justice in the State of California. Paris Hilton bought a physician to claim she needed early release from jail for "medical reasons." It's a shame the officials trusted to oversee the system were not able to see through this, and they allowed her to leave the facility. Of course, most anyone would be distressed if confined to a correctional facility. Believe it or not, she is no different than the rest of us. Thus, she should not be afforded special treatment.

Without question, this privilege of early release to serve time at home is not available to most of the citizens of California.

Does Paris Hilton own TMZ? Seems like the herpes laden internet porn star must have money invested in TMZ.

This is PATHETIC! An unspecified medical condition??? How many inmates that are 'poor' and don't have the financial resources this brat has have 'medical' conditions but have to tough it out anyway, because they don't have mommy and daddy bailing them out?! I feel sick to my stomach that this child has manipulated the situation again.....she did the crime she SHOULD do the time, just like anyone else. She will now continue to believe she is above the law and ITS JUST WRONG!

Then what was the whole point of even having a judge? If the LA Sheriff's Department can make up their own sentencing, then what in the heck do we need judges for?

What a waste of everyone's time and money.

Where the heck is Baca, vacationing or something?

Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network, and one of the country's foremost leaders for civil rights, is blasting the justice system for what appears to be favoritism in the early release of Paris Hilton.

"Though I have nothing but empathy for Ms. Hilton whom I have met and appeared with on Saturday Night Live the night I hosted in 2003, this early release gives all of the appearances of economic and racial favoritism that is constantly cited by poor people and people of color. There are any number of cases of people who handle being incarcerated badly and even have health conditions that are not released.

Welcome to the real Los Angeles! You people surely didn't believe that Paris Hilton would spend 42, or even 23 days, in jail? Los Angeles is infested with publicity whores. The worst kind are in the entertainment industry and politics. Sometimes the border between the two is blurred. In my opinion, Paris’s release is political.

Presently, Los Angeles has latino leaders advancing by leaps and bounds because the rest of you are too lazy to educate yourselves about where these "leaders" are taking your city, county, and state. You don't take an interest nor do you exercise your right to vote. Without question, you are lulled into false security that there are laws and that those laws are being enforced. Are you seriously surprised that Paris hired a cunning defense lawyer to broker this early release for Paris?

Latino leaders love a ca$h cow. Most of you just eat up the pablum dished out to you about how hard-working illegal immigrants from south of the border came to the USA - and now their hard working children are your role models because Antonio Villaraigosa is Los Angeles Mayor; Leroy "Lee" Baca is Los Angeles County Sheriff, Rocky Delgadillo is Los Angeles City Attorney, ...... blah, blah, blah. You've heard that Mexico's government is corrupt where the wealthy people can buy their way out of all sorts of crap? Well now, you can see that the same crap happens in Los Angeles.

Don't blame the Judge - he judiciously dispensed what Paris had coming for thumbing her nose at the system. The blame lies squarely on Rocky Delgadillo and Lee Baca. And, don't be fooled that the Mayor hasn't played a sneaky role in the Paris-release debacle. Los Angeles is a sanctuary city for latino illegal aliens. There is a Senate immigration Bill being kicked around right now. The proponents need a pretty, monied mascot to further their cause. Keep it in the front page headlines. Yes, yes, the latino leaders did such a magnificient favor to the world by releasing the blond bimbo from jail.. Baca is a hero!!!!! The truth is Baca has in the past, threatened the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors that he is releasing prisoners early (in order to extort more money from the taxpayers).

Villaraigosa and Delgadillo both aspire to oust Schwarzneggar as California's Governor. Talk about milking that ca$h cow - Paris Hilton - for publicity and more. Paris buys her freedom while making Villaraigosa, Baca and Delgadillo look like compassionate choir boys. Their chorus of course, is Mexico style justice: $$$$$$$$$$

It's your civic duty to write to these elected officials and let them know how you feel about Paris Hilton's preferential treatment. Here is who you contact:

Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the U.S. During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. to operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico. Today Mexican school children are taught that the U.S. stole California, Arizona, new Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their schoolchildren. Here's a suggestion: could we just send Paris, Lindsey, Nicole, and the rest of the Hollywood incorrigibles to Mexico to serve out their court ordered sentence?
