Judge to Sheriff -- I Was Sandbagged

6/8/2007 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's what's going down in court right now:
Judge Michael Sauer, Sheriff Lee Baca, Paris Hilton
Judge Michael Sauer said that before Paris was released, he was contacted by the Sheriff and told they would file a motion to place Paris under house arrest. The judge said the motion was never filed, and added, "There's no way I would have approved it even if I got the motion."

The prosecutor, Dan Jeffries, who is also pissed at the Sheriff, accused the Sheriff of "assuming all three roles of the criminal justice system," claiming "Sheriff Lee Baca is interpreting the law all by himself."

I love you Paris and I wish you the best support day and night, screw all these haters. Don't let anyone ever tell you you can't do something, believe in yourself. Always look to the horizon°.

The sheriff should probably update his resume, because I've got a sneaking suspicion he's going to be looking for a new job soon.

Democrats are evil    

I personally hope this will fester in the minds of the Los Angeles voters the next time Lee Baca comes up for re-election. He has been a joke for the last eight years and the voters have rubber stamped his election solely on name recognition. He makes almost 300K per year, spends over 1 million dollars per year on a private jet aircraft availability for himself, release's prisoners early on a continual basis and this is typical of how he runs the sheriffs Dept. Remember his "Gonads" comments? Los Angeles could be better served by a more competent leader. He is a political power hungry egomaniac.

Who else is this Sheriff letting out of jail?

Murderers, sex offenders?

It sounds like he's running his own justice system

Pretty clear the Sherriff dept has too much power and not enough supervision!
