Is there favoritism in Paris Hilton's early prison release?

Does the very early ( 3 days) release of Paris Hilton from jail give the appearance of economic and/or status favoritism - why or why not ?

Answer #1

She served 3 days….was given credit for 5.

Answer #2

They could solve several problems here:

  1. Hilton does not want to be in Jail.
  2. The Jails are over crowded.
  3. Early release of Hilton will Cause a public out cry. Solution: Have Hilton build a 40 acre Multistory Jail facility for L.A. . . . We can call it the Hilton Bastelle. Paris get to go free La can keep people in Jail and the Public wins
Answer #3

I don’t know the details of her release but it sure sounds like she got preferential treatment. Like several columnists have said, they have doctors, psychologists, etc. in jail why couldn’t she be treated there?

To me the $64,000 question is did Paris Hilton learn her lesson? Is she likely to repeat her crime? If the 3 days in jail and all the negative publicity is enough for her to be “scared straight” than I suppose her brief punishment served its purpose.

Answer #4

Instead of 23 days in jail she has to spend 45 on house arrest due to a medical (or mental) problem.

She could have some serious psychological issues. I’m sure anyone who has had everything handed to them would.

The authorities just wouldn’t let her go on house arrest if there wasn’t a valid reason.

I don’t think there has been any favoritism.

Answer #5



The New York Post reports this morning that NBC is going to shell out $1 million for the sit-down, which will be on the “Today” show the day after Paris leaves Lynwood (prison), which is supposed to be Monday.

Answer #6

oh paris… i don’t like her…

:) she’s built funny… like her body is all randomly put together…

idk. i think it’s dumb she was let out early… if it was a regular person put into jail for the same reason she was… you think they’d get out like she did… i don’t think so.

Answer #7

Update on that interview:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Paris Hilton appeared to be a celebrity without a spotlight on Friday after two major U.S. television networks snubbed the hotel heiress they initially fought over for a first post-jail interview.

An ABC executive said his network declined interview offers from the multimillionaire socialite after Hilton and her mother, Kathy, personally sought to secure a deal in a flurry of telephone calls to ABC News veteran Barbara Walters.

Meanwhile, rival network NBC issued a statement saying it, too, had informed Hilton’s representatives that it was “no longer interested in pursing an interview with her.”

Contrary to reports of a $1 million deal in the works, NBC said it was “never going to pay them any money.”

CBS News, which had not been deeply involved in the initial tug-of-war for a Hilton interview, likewise said it was not interested

Answer #8

Update 6/23/07:

TMZ has learned Paris Hilton will make her post-jail appearance on “Larry King Live” Wednesday night with the King himself.

We are told Hilton will appear in-studio for the entire hour of the show. It’s a major coup following the NBC debacle yesterday.

This Monday, TMZ’s Harvey Levin will guest-host for King. His guests include Hilton’s lawyer, Richard Hutton, and an official from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

UPDATE (3:45 PM PT) – Paris HIlton has just released this statement:

“I am thrilled that Larry King has asked me to appear on his program to discuss my experience in jail, what I have learned, how I have grown and anything else he wants to talk about. Larry King is not only a world-renown journalist, but a true American Icon. It will be an honor to do his show.”
