Sean Penn was not given special treatment by serving an alternative sentence on his misdemeanor charge of violating his parole, according to a report by the Los Angeles County Judicial Procedures Commission released Thursday. "Penn was allowed to exercise options available to many individuals who work, attend school or have family commitments," the report stated. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors ordered the investigation after board member Kenneth Hahn accused the courts of giving preferential treatment to movie stars. Hahn objected to Penn's six days spent in a rural jail in Bridgeport, Calif. Today marks Penn's 19th day of his 33-day sentence. After his Bridgeport stay, Penn checked into Los Angeles County Jail on Aug. 22 to serve the remaining 27 days of his sentence.
