I've just heard the news today about Paris Hilton that she had been set from after spending ONLY 5 days out of 45 days in prison in the pretext of medical reasons.

Do you think this is fair or right? If this is teaching the public anything it's teaching them that celebs and $$$ are everything in life and if you have either or both of them you can get away with whatever you do.?

Do you think the court and her lawyer were honest in their assessment to Paris's case? She even killed someone while driving under the influence of alcohol? Is this fair???

I was hoping that prison life would learn her some lesson from this ordeal. But evidently, that did not teach her anything.

My take is: I am disappointed in all of this. The way how the court evaluated her case just because she is a daughter of a millionaire and celebrity. Paris could have learned a lesson that would enable her to realize that she is equal to any other individual when she makes mistakes or breaks the law and thus responsible for her conduct & own wrong actions. That the 45 days in prison would have taught her a lesson to be a more responsible, mindful, humble and law-abiding person.

All these concepts and theories vanished and I'm totally disappointed in her.

Ras...I hear you but I have to say, I am not surprised. Money can get you anything. Martha Stewart spent time in jail and came out richer than before. Unfortunately, Paris Hilton can buy her freedom in any situation. I don't think she killed anyone though. I want a rich daddy too:)

Yes she did kill someone while driving drunk. Fantas log on MSN and read carefully her news there.

I hope you were joking when you said: "I want a rich daddy." 🙂

Well, I don't agree that $$$ is everything. I'm pretty sure that many folks are upset right now just like me. The people who handled her case lacked any sense of INTEGRITY & Justice, unfortunately.

Paris Hilton did not kill anyone. She was sentenced to jail time for violating her probation on a drunk driving charge.

Not right that she only served 3 out of the 23 days of her sentence, but this is the United States. Fair or un-fair... money can buy ANYTHING.

Ras, yes I was joking:) Of course itsn't fair. I'd say her lawyers weren't going for justice, they wanted her out of jail and if possible her conviction over turned. Can you imagine what the DA must be feeling?

Ok guys...if you don't believe that she killed someOne while driving I'm pasting the news as I read it today from MSN:

"Which brings us to Paris Hilton, up until Thursday the most famous prison inmate in the country. But authorities have decided that, after “extensive consultation with Los Angeles County medical personnel,” she is finished with her sentence after just five days, and will now serve the rest of her time at home, wearing an ankle bracelet.

No word yet on whether Paris will be free to roam wherever she wants until a custom-made, diamond-studded ankle bracelet is delivered by Tiffany’s, but you know that’s coming.

I’m no legal expert, but I know enough as a private citizen to understand the importance of precedent. And this sets a horrible precedent.

Paris Hilton had already been coddled beyond belief. She had been sentenced to 45 days in prison for violating the terms of her probation on an alcohol-related reckless driving case. She didn’t get it. She reasoned that just because the law requires a person to spend time in jail if they don’t comply with the terms of her probation doesn’t mean she can’t drive around without a suspended license.

Then when she appeared before a judge, she claimed she didn’t know, that she was told by her publicist, Elliot Mintz, that it was all right to drive around under those circumstances. Then she fired her publicist before hiring him right back.

Then she whined about how unfair it all was. Her quote: “I feel I was treated unfairly and that the sentence is both cruel and unwarranted. I don’t deserve this.”

"She neglected to mention how cruel it would have been had she KILLED SOMEBODY WHILE DRIVING under the influence."

Her mother, Kathy Hilton, otherwise known as “The Enabler,” called her original 45-day sentence “pathetic and disgusting, a waste of taxpayers’ money” and “It is a joke.”

Hi,

In Los Angeles the jails are overcrowded so not everyone does the full term. I have a girlfriend who didnt complete her community hours with regard to 2 DUI's and was sentenced to 2 weeks.. She went in thinking she was in for 2 weeks and she was let out the next day.

So what is happing to Paris Hilton is not because of her money...everyone gets out early because the jails are full of serious offenders.

Well, I do think that the point is that this is why DUI is so dangerous- that someone CAN be killed. Should we wait until then to be concerned? Honestly, I've done stupid things like that when I was younger. If I had been caught and punished to the full extent of the law maybe I wouldn't have CONTINUED to abuse myself, much less cause other people problems. DUI's should be taken seriously. I'm sick of hearing stories like this.

This arrest did nothing but give that girl more publicity. Personally, I think it's a lot more serious than what Martha Stewart did.

Give me a freakin' break! So the next time anyone gets arrested, all they have to do is say they can't eat? Not hard considering the food they serve inmates. God that's ridiculous.

Well, the justice system works. Paris is back in jail... The judge ordered her back to prison to serve the remainder of her sentence.
