This photo just about says it all. Someone’s finding out how the other half lives:
“As Ms. Hilton was driven back to court, her trip followed by news helicopters, she cried in the back seat of the police cruiser. When she entered the courtroom, where her parents were also waiting, she broke down and sobbed. Sheriff Lee Baca set off a furor in legal circles and beyond when his office announced on Thursday that Ms. Hilton would be allowed out of jail and instead put under house arrest because of an unspecified ‘medical condition.’ The city attorney who prosecuted her case, Rocky Delgadillo, said it was a case of preferential treatment for a celebrity. He asked the judge to order Ms. Hilton back to jail and asked the sheriff’s department to show why it should not be held in contempt of court for letting her go in the first place. ‘We cannot tolerate a two-tiered jail system where the rich and powerful receive special treatment,’ Mr. Delgadillo said after learning of the release.”
Paris Hilton might have made something positive of her sentence had she served it honorably. Instead, she has squandered what little good will might have come from the public upon her release with this latest display. She should have taken a lesson from Martha Stewart and used it to her advantage.
