An otherwise unassuming career jurist, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer found himself thrust into semi-celebrity last week when he sentenced Paris Hilton to jail. Hilton and her spokespeople have since decried the 45-day sentence as unfairly harsh and out of step with her crime of repeatedly driving with a suspended license.

A MESSAGE TO Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, whose office decided to transfer Paris Hilton from jail to home monitoring for still-mysterious "medical" reasons; and to City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo, who went to court demanding a contempt hearing against the Sheriff's Department and hard (sort of) time for Hilton; and to Los Angeles County supervisors Don Knabe and Yvonne B.

Actor Kiefer Sutherland pleaded no contest Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunk driving charge stemming from his arrest two weeks ago in West Los Angeles. Sutherland, who plays counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer on the popular Fox TV show "24," was scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 21 in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The Los Angeles city attorney's office, as part of a plea deal with Sutherland, recommended that he be sentenced to 48 days in jail.

Re "Paris Hilton stunned by 45-day sentence," May 5 So Kathy Hilton thinks that the court proceedings surrounding daughter Paris' legal troubles are "a waste of taxpayer money." I have to agree.

I think that as a Los Angeles County taxpayer, the clueless and self-absorbed Hilton family should reimburse the county for the cost of this fiasco.

"Today, I told my attorneys not to appeal the judge's decision," Hilton said in the statement.

Until now, officials have said they believed that Hilton would serve the entire jail term ordered last week by Superior Court Judge Michael T.

Kiefer Sutherland, as agent Jack Bauer on Fox TV's "24," has seen some pretty tough nemeses. But when city prosecutors Friday charged the actor with two counts of drunk driving and accused him of violating parole in a prior DUI case, they thrust him into the courtroom of the judge who sent Paris Hilton to jail and, when the sheriff let her out early, sent her, sobbing, right back. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael T.
