UPDATE: PARIS COULD BE HEADING BACK TO JAIL

Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo filed a motion on June 7 with Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer (the judge who originally sentenced Paris Hilton) requesting that the court order the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department to return Paris Hilton to the Century Regional Detention Center to serve her sentence in compliance with California law and the court's May 4, 2007 order.

The motion also requests the court to issue an order for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department to show cause why it should not be held in contempt for violating the court's May 4 order commitment order, which expressly instructed the Sheriff's Department: "No Electronic Monitoring."

In response to the City Attorney's request, Judge Sauer set the matter for a hearing tomorrow morning (June 8) at 9:00 a.m. The court also granted the City Attorney's request that the Sheriff's Department bring Ms. Hilton to the 9:00 a.m. court hearing.

Jeffrey Isaacs, Chief of the City Attorney's Criminal Branch, explained: "It is the City Attorney's position that the decision 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, and, that the Sheriff's Department violated Judge Sauer's May 4 order by unilaterally making that decision, without notice to the City Attorney's Office and a judicial hearing."
