UPI News Service, 06/08/2007
Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said he reassigned Paris Hilton to home monitoring because of overcrowded conditions and "her severe medical problems."
"There's 20,000 inmates -- the largest jail system in the United States," Baca said in a statement. "It's very overcrowded."
A Los Angeles judge ordered Hilton be returned to Century Regional Detention Facility, an all-women's jail in Lynwood, Calif., to finish serving her sentence for violating probation. The sheriff's department Thursday reassigned Hilton to home monitoring, citing "severe medical problems."
