Meanwhile, Sheriff Lee Baca is fighting back, telling the LA Times:
"The problem here is that there is a medical issue and it isn't wise to keep a person in jail with her problem over an extended period of time and let the problem get worse. In my opinion, justice is being served by the decision to have her serve her time at home. She would still be in the county jail if it were not for the medical advice. My message to those who don't like celebrities is that punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice."
Please. You may not like her sentence (I sure do!), but it isn't your choice to make. The judge sentenced her to 23 days in prison, she serves 23 days in prison. You don't like the way justice is being dispensed, go to law school and become a judge yourself. NOT. YOUR. CALL. TO. MAKE. Simple as that.

UPDATE: Paris screamed and cried in court as the judge told her to get her butt right back in jail:
Paris Hilton was taken from a courtroom screaming and crying Friday seconds after a judge ordered her returned to jail to serve out her entire 45-day sentence for a parole violation in a reckless driving case.
"It's not right!" shouted the weeping Hilton. "Mom!" she called out to her mother in the audience.
Hilton, who was brought to court in handcuffs in a sheriff's car, came into the courtroom disheveled and weeping. Her hair was askew and she wore a gray fuzzy sweatshirt over slacks. She wore no makeup and she cried throughout the hearing.
Her body also shook constantly as she dabbed at her eyes. Several times she turned to her parents, seated behind her in the courtroom, and mouthed, "I love you."
Puh-lease. She deserves to serve every single day of her sentence. What could have happened here? She drove drunk and could have killed someone and showed NO remorse whatsoever. She didn't even do the fake rehab thing to make her look better. And on top of showing no remorse, she thumbed her nose at the system by not even trying to hide the fact that she violated her probation. And look at her response -- to call for her mommy. Obviously all those fake "I'm prepared to serve my time because I'm SOOO sorry" statements she made were just that -- a load of crap. She thinks she's better than everyone else and therefore shouldn't have to serve any time at all. And what kind of punishment is house arrest, anyways? SHE can't go anywhere. But her friends can come over. She can drink, do drugs, watch TV... I mean, come on. That's not a punishment!
Paris -- suck it up. If you don't want to go to jail, then next time, here's a tip: DON'T BREAK THE LAW!
