Paris ordered into court

You definitely get the feeling the Paris Hilton backlash is a lot bigger than Sheriff Baca gambled on — and the storm is just beginning. Judge Michael Sauer wants Hilton in court tomorrow at 9 am for a hearing — and he ordered the Sheriff's Department to bring her. City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo's office asked for Hilton to be returned to custody and a hearing to make Baca justify why he released Hilton after only four days in jail. Earlier today, most of the Board of Supervisors voiced outrage and talk began of punishing Baca through his budget. I haven't been listening to talk radio today, but I can just imagine.
