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.

DAMN!

Guys, seriously... how does the fact that Paris Hilton got out of jail, affect ANY of us??

--If any of you were in jail, you would do what you had to or could do to try and get out... damn!

Good for her - she got out... she has a DRIVING violation, which has been admitted by some people in the L.A. legal system as "not really warranting jailtime".

Leave her alone... what she does, or does not do, does not change anything we are doing.

I am happy she got out - I for one, don't think she needed to be there in the first place for that driving crap.

Happy she is out.

R95 :

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that Paris' house arrest does not come with any provisions regarding visitors or restrictions on alcohol use.

EVERYBODY IS SPEWING HATE ON POOR PARIS for no good reason. She didn't deserve that much jail time to begin with, and she wouldn't have gotten it if the judge had not been trying to make an example of her. House arrest is COMPLETELY FAIR under the circumstances. She has gotten so much severe abuse from the media that she is under severe stress. I don't think our numerous celebrity murderers (one of whom was actually being cheered on by many of our MENTALLY SICK Angelenos as he tried to escape in his Ford bronco) got as much abuse as Paris. I am beginning to think Americans have a secret sadistic impulse. Paris probably was and is a spoiled brat, but that is a very small social price to pay for her beauty and charm. How many young women have what Paris has? GET RID OF YOUR JEALOUSY, PEOPLE, and get a life.

Paris has make-up artists (supposedly).
Can't they do something to lessen the gimpy-ness of that left eye?
I have cosmetic tricks to hide a couple of less-than-perfect things!

If you really want to get "back at her", and get her TV show(s) off the air... don't call the TV networks, call their advertisers! Remember, you're not TV station's customer, the advertisers are!

I think that once this little up start comes out of the House arrest what a joke.
All members of the LA community should make sure she has at least 80 days of grief everywhere she goes. She should be sent packing at all occasions this is an outrage that a spoilt socialite can get away with this type of a stunt. Its time that the people of AMERICA took control. Where is your pride.
This wimp has just flushed that down the drain.
Speak up and let her know that she is not welcome to behave like this any more,
There should be a ban on all venues she appears at.

The judge should hold the sheriff in contempt and put him behind bars! Let him finish out the remainder of her sentence? And the judge should resind the sheriffs (overstepping his authority) and have her hauled back to jail! But if a sheriff really does have more authority over judicial judgements, then why do we have judges in the first place? You know what they say; if your a pretty girl, you'll never go hungry a day in yur life. Ok she did the bread and water thing for a grand total of 3-days? Did she even do 72-hours? I guess that's a miracle in (an of) itself? Thank you...

Umm Sheriff? She ain't suppose to like jail-that's the whole point of being there. Too let her out to serve time in her comfy digs is wrong.

They called and asked for him to change the sentence, yet they did it anyways. I seem to remember something about seperation of powers in government classes in HS.. Apparently, the LASD can make their own judgements... Who needs the court systems when the law enforcement can make their own decisions...

Insane.

TMZ - how much money does your organization stand to make with the response's on this issue...how much goes to the Hilton Clan? How much goes to the education / programs dealing with youth and responsible decisions, irregardless of you social status? I think I would have a great deal of respect if TMZ and the Hiltons if they put the revenues gained in this drill to good use...perhaps your audience can make some suggestions...protecting our youth? Honoring our troops - protecting our nation - believers or not. It is crazy how much media attention is given to such a trivia cause. If I truly believe Ms. Hilton has learned something & understood she is not better than the rest of humanity then hey I am wrong….Actions speaks louder than words. Show the world that you are worthier of the star they have made you for some unknown reason. These times of uncertainty require people of means, regardless of their status to make a difference for our youth to believe. Life to too short to believe you are above the law and taking the easy way out is not the solution, regardless of age, race, nationality. Take responsibility for your actions…Problem with our youth today. Parents are to blame, 50% - 50% the individual.

Oh me...the DA is pissed, the judge clearly said no to modification of the order, the sheriff's dept. have done what they want and circumvented the appropriate channels.

Methinks the *hit is about to hit Paris Hilton's fan.
