Probation Dept's Statement on Paris' Release

6/7/2007 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris HiltonThe following is a statement released by the Probation Department in Los Angeles:

"Paris Hilton was granted a conditional sentence in Los Angeles Metro Superior Court on January 22, 2007. A conditional sentence or "summary probation" is monitored by the court for compliance unless the court orders formal probation. Although not on formal probation, Ms. Hilton is supervised by the Los Angeles County probation department in regards to electronic monitoring.

Electronic Monitoring is an integral part of community-based alternatives to custody. The Electronic Monitoring (EM) program is available to Los Angeles County Courts as an alternative to custody in accordance with penal code. The probation department contracts with a private vendor to provide electronic monitoring services. Eligible post-sentence inmates are screened for eligibility or it may be court-ordered either prior to conviction as a pretrial release or after conviction as a sentence option.

Paris Hilton applied for the community based alternative to custody program and qualified as low-risk but the department did not recommend Electronic Monitoring because the court order specified ''no Electronic Monitoring.' The Sheriff Department exercised the authority to reassign Ms. Hilton to an Electronic Monitoring sentence."

If I was the Judge in the case I would be outraged. Since when can the Sheriif overturn a judges order? This is such a outrage.

Our only hope is that the judge comes back in and overrides the Sherrif, essentially because they've gone against his order, and geez, most everyone gets mentally stressed out due to/during incarceration!! It's supposed to provide opportunity for rehabilitation and to prevent recidivism! Fat chance of that under house arrest!

They all need to be fired-so unfair to others in the same predicament. And as for Paris...the woman is an embarrassment to herself, crying her baby ass out of jail, couldn't act like a big girl and do the time. I would hide in shame.

I have just spent the entire morning contacting, emailing, and calling all the people who could be held responsible for this disgusting compromise of the socialite, now turned parisite, Paris Hilton. Only one emailed me back, and this was their response:

"The Los Angeles County Sheriff is an elected official in his own right. As a result, The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has no control over sentencing, release dates or medical assessments of prisoners. That said, Supervisor Knabe is adamant that if Paris Hilton has been reassigned to house arrest and placed on electronic monitoring, it is imperative that the Sheriff makes every minute of that sentence stick. Paris Hilton needs to serve all 40 days of her full sentence on electronic monitoring."

I am starting a petition to put Paris Back in Jail. All who are interested, please email me at CaliforniDreamin@aol.com. I will be emailing you the petition to sign. We will then send it to all that matter. All of you who are pissed, please write.

Will this now be a precedent for other offenders? Will others be released and re assigned in the future. Could there be a lawsuit for others if not granted the same courtesy? I don't understand this. Are there laws in the book that we are unaware of? I we looked would we find loopholes to allow this?
