Pari$ Hilton Costs L.A. County a Bundle

6/11/2007 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ParisIt costs more than 10 times the normal amount to jail Paris Hilton.

TMZ contacted the Sheriff's Department to determine just how much money the County is spending on Hilton -- and it's way more than it costs to stay at a Hilton!

Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ the average cost per day for a female inmate is $99.64. Paris, well, ain't no bargain. It costs $1,109.78 to keep her locked up. The costs include medical treatment and staff associated with her needs.

By the way, if Hilton were under house arrest, it would cost taxpayers zilch. The inmate shells out the cost of doing time at home.

Send Paris the bill for the medical charges. We all know the whole "medical condition" was a complete BS excuse for the sheriff to release her early in the first place.

Miss Meyers of #59 is RIGHT ON TARGET!!

HILTONS, KEEP YOUR HEADS DOWN AS YOU PASS BY THE REGULAR FOLKS WAITING 2-4 HOURS TO SEE THEIR LOVED ONES JUST SO YOU COULD GET PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT IN SEEING HILTON UGLY SLUT #3, medically sound, sitting in the medical ward playing ping-pong & calling journalists on the phone.

HILTON BRAND = SKANKY, DISEASE-RIDDEN BRAND
NO AMOUNT OF BABS WALTERS OR TMZ/TIME-WARNER INTERVIEWS, CRY-BABY PHOTO OPS WILL TAKE AWAY THE SMELL FROM THE HILTON BRAND.

8. Gee what a surprise! But if she was under house arrest would she learn anything from her experience??? But then again...doubt she's really learning anything now, either.

Why is Paris such a mess, sick, when it is reported that on the day she was released to go home, a salon came to her house and gave her a spray tan and reported that she was in high spirits and happy to be home? She needed a spray tan to get rid of the jail house paleness acquired from 3 whole days in jail.

We are not this stupid.

And, Mr. Levin, get a grip. We are your bread and butter, not Paris Hilton. Or are you into insulting the public like Paris is?

I'm sorry that it costs so much to jail paris. I think in her case, she should reimburse the county for her expenses. She is directly responsible for the expenses. Let her pay everything above the regular cost. I gather she is not really sick anymore, just will be kept on the medical ward because she behaves better there.

Sheriff Baca is who cost the tax payers money. Had she just went in and done her time she would have been out by now.
I will gladly pay the tax but I will also work to have Baca removed.
Good try TMZ but your question makes no sense.
Paris was sentenced and you can't change that fact.
Why nor then send all the the low offenders in the LA county jail system home with monitors if your wishing to save money however someone still needs to pay the probation Dept to monitor them.

All of this outrage is misguided! All of the outrage should be aimed at the fact LA County has an overcrowding issue and Sheriff Baca has to have a program in place to control the population. Our aim should be to make sure EVERYONE in LA County that is
sentenced to county jail serves their entire sentence! The entire country needs to deal
with the facts of how things are in LA County as told by Sheriff Baca. He stated the typical in Paris's situation. And it isn't what she is getting. All in the name of publicity. SHE
SHOULD BE LET FREE NOW AND NOT A SECOND FURTHER!!!!FREE PARIS! TREAT HER LIKE ANYONE AND EVERYONE IN LA COUNTY!!!!

FREE PARIS!! FREE PARIS!! FREE PARIS!! FREE PARIS!! FREE PARIS!!

As I recall, the judge ordered that no press interviews were to be done with her while she was in jail. She had one with Barbara Walters!

She's still violating the whole intent here - this is obscene - will the judge have the nerve to step in again and stop this game?

Her family & friends get special treatment... yikes!!! Stop this and make her do the punishment as intended - without special treatment!

This town is a joke. Jurys let O.J. and Robert Blake out of jail for murder but keeps Paris in for a suspended license. Give me a break!
