Poll: Paris Hilton treated leniently
Most readers who answered an online poll say the courts have treated Paris Hilton too leniently.
That was the opinion of 85 people (56.3 percent) who answered the two-day, unscientific poll at www.decaturdaily.com, which ended Sunday.
Fifty people (33.1 percent) said her treatment has been about right, and 16 (10.6 percent) said she has been treated too harshly.
“I personally think Paris Hilton is a rich, spoiled kid,” wrote David W. Kelley of Decatur in an e-mail, “and the sheriff should be locked up for letting Paris out so early. Plus she already has been given her driver licenses back, way too soon.
“But I do think Paris might be suicidal. Paris Hilton is screaming out for help like Anna Nicole Smith was, and no one listens. I do hope Paris gets the right kind of help.”
The celebrity heiress was sentenced to 45 days in jail in Los Angeles for violating probation in a reckless-driving case.
The sheriff let her out under house arrest because of an undisclosed medical condition, but the judge sent her back to detention.
During the weekend, she was in a detention center where she was believed to be undergoing medical and psychiatric evaluations, according to The Associated Press.
