Paris Hilton

Free Woman

6/7/2007 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-paris-ex-01-2TMZ has learned that Paris Hilton has not only had her sentence cut short, she is already out of jail!

Unimpeachable sources tell TMZ the deal was sealed yesterday, and that Hilton made her exit early early this morning.

She was originally sentenced to 45 days in jail, but that was reduced to 23. She served a total of five days -- the normal stay for a violation of this kind. Her five days began Sunday night and concluded early Thursday morning.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department will hold a news conference in an hour to discuss what went down.

UPDATE 10:16
:
LA County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says that Paris Hilton has been fitted for an ankle bracelet and put under house arrest for the next 40 days, after authorities decided to release Paris from jail due to medical reasons. She got out of jail just after 2:00 AM.

Whitmore says he cannot release details about Paris' "medical issue" due to confidentiality, but said that medical officials "constantly examined" her while she was in jail.

Paris will be under house confinement in her West Hollywood home for 40 days. After the 40 days are up, Whitmore says she will have "fulfilled her debt to society."

Whitmore made it clear that Paris was not released early -- she was reassigned. She is technically still in custody.

She was suicidal. Too crazy for LA lock-up.
If she killed herself, LA would have gone bankrupt just protecting itself from Hilton family lawsuits.

There is justice for the rich and then there is justice for everyone else.

I'm so happy for her and her family. I first thought she deserved her punishment, but I think she has come to realize what she has done. She seems like a nice caring person, and I hope she learns from not only her mistakes, but her friends also.

Whoa, and she thought people didn't like her BEFORE. She's nothing but a walking target, now.

The Judicial system in California is a joke when it comes to the rich & famous . If Arnold had anything to do with it he should be impeached !!!

I am glad Paris was allowed to go home. She never deserved to be there anyway. You people who are posting and ranting hate filled comments are nut jobs. You never even met this woman. Why would you wish horrible things on a total stranger? I fear for your family and friends if they ever did anything wrong. Apparently most of the people posting on this, have never made any mistake, nor have their children. Now that she is out of jail, you pathetic miserable people have nothing to do with your time. Try employment, it works!!!

The lawers in this country a going crazy!! When a judge sentenses someone that should be it. This case only goes to prove that our justice dept has fallen apart and I don't think there is any way to fix it because most of our legislators are all lawers and will not ruin their own golden goose.
