Prison officials announce Paris Hilton will be released Tuesday
UPI News Service, 06/22/2007
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Friday set a date for the release of Paris Hilton from jail, where she is serving 23 days for violating probation.
Records specialists calculated her actual release date, based on Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer's orders, and it is Tuesday, People magazine reported. Hilton can be released any time of day or night, the magazine said.
"There was some confusion as to whether it would be Monday or Tuesday, and we just wanted to let people know what was happening," sheriff's Sgt. Duane Allen Jr. said.
The term takes into account 22 days of credit for good behavior, the department said. Hilton originally was sentenced to 45 days for driving with a suspended license in violation of her probation in an alcohol-related driving case.
