Judge Sauer for President

Three cheers for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer, who ordered Paris Hilton brought to court on Friday by deputies and sent her back to jail.

As for Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca? Judge Sauer should give him 15 days in jail for contempt of court. I’ve got news for Baca. The sheriff obeys the judge; not the other way around.

But I do wonder what happened to the original 45-day sentence, with no early release or home monitoring. How did her sentence get knocked down to 23 days before she ever entered jail? The jail over-crowding concern holds no water, since she'll be in the celebrity holding pen.

Sorry, Paris. No gourmet meals. No frolicking, dancing all night, drives around town. Looks like Judge Sauer is going to make his rules stick.
