Hilton leaves medical ward
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paris Hilton was transferred back to an all-women’s jail because her condition was declared stable after nearly a week in a medical ward, a sheriff’s official said yesterday.
Miss Hilton was brought late Wednesday to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood and placed in the medical clinic there. If all goes well, she will return to the jail’s special needs unit and be released June 25, spokesman Steve Whitmore said at a press conference.
The 26-year-old socialite and reality TV star began her sentence June 3 at Lynwood, where she was confined to a solitary cell in the special needs unit away from the other 2,200 inmates.
Judge Michael T. Sauer, who specified at Miss Hilton’s sentencing last month that she not serve time at home or with the use of electronic monitoring, sent her back to jail last Friday, saying he hadn’t condoned her release.
Miss Hilton was taken to the downtown Twin Towers jail, which houses men and the county’s medical treatment center, where she underwent medical and psychiatric exams to determine where she should be held.
Miss Hilton failed a sobriety test after police saw her weaving down a street in her Mercedes-Benz in September. She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to three years’ probation.
In the months that followed, she was stopped twice by officers who discovered her driving on a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Judge Sauer’s courtroom, where he sentenced her to jail.
