Paris Hilton could be sent back to jail today (08.06.07).

The hotel heiress - who was released from California's Century Regional
Detention Facility yesterday (07.06.07) for unspecified medical reasons and
put on 40-day house arrest after serving just five days of her sentence -
has been ordered to report to the Los Angeles Superior Court at 9am today
(08.06.07).



A judge will hear her case for "reassignment" to house arrest and decide if
she should return to prison.

Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department,
said her "reassignment" from her 8ft by 12ft cell to her luxury home was
made after "extensive consultations" with jail doctors and the sentencing
judge.

However, a court spokesman has insisted the decision was not approved by
Judge Michael Sauer, who sentenced Paris last month for driving with a
suspended license.

At the time, Sauer had specifically ruled she could not serve her jail time
at home under electronic monitoring.

Sauer set today's hearing after a request from the city's attorneys who are
now suggesting Sheriff Lea Baca should be held in contempt of court for
releasing Paris early.



City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, whose office prosecuted the 26-year-old,
complained he had no idea she had left jail.

He said: "The judicial process may have been improperly circumvented. It is
the city attorney's position that the decision on whether or not Ms. Hilton
should be released early and placed on electronic monitoring should be made
by Judge Sauer and not the Sheriff's Department.

"The sheriff's explanation for Paris' house arrest is puzzling, county jails
are well-equipped to deal with medical situations involving inmates."

Paris was reportedly released after developing a rash, according to US TV
show 'Entertainment Tonight', while gossip website TMZ.com claim she was in
danger of having of a nervous breakdown.

County Supervisor Don Knabe fumed: "What transpired here is outrageous. I
have received more than 400 angry emails and hundreds more phone calls from
around the country. Her return home gives the impression of celebrity
justice being handed out."

Paris, who was fitted with an ankle bracelet to keep track of her
whereabouts, praised jail staff after being released in the early hours of
yesterday morning.

She said: "Thank you for treating me fairly and professionally. I have
learned a great deal from this ordeal and hope others have learned from my
mistakes."
