FROM THIS EPISODE

Today LA County Supervisors gave Sheriff Lee Baca a week to report back on the Paris Hilton debacle - they want to know if her early release amounted to special celebrity treatment. However, a lot of other questions need to be answered.

Main Topic Paris Hilton and Imperfect Justice at County Jails

Why are so many other inmates released before their sentences have been served? What’s the state of medical treatment for the seriously ill?  Is Baca the only one who’s at fault? What about the state of California and the supervisors themselves? We'll get some surprising answers tonight on WWLA.
