Looks like if you are white, rich and famous, you get a free pass, an apology and a ride home in the Mayor's limousine.
The LASD can cite jail overcrowding, good time/work time, credit for time served, or "released in (clerical) error" but in the end, it was them, NOT the sentencing Judge, who made the call. Probably the Judge in fact knew something like this would happen, which was maybe why he gave her 45 days for the violation of Probation
Probably, the Judge will get heat for it this time. It's a publicity nightmare for sure. The British are laughing their asses off at us, undoubtedly.
Still, she's not home free. Probation is a "tail", and she still has it and she has to wear the ankle jewelry, and report in to her PO regularly.
She breaks probation again, doesn't report, or comply with whatever terms there are, with it, and the PO or the District Attorney will file a motion to revoke.
After the 2nd or 3rd time, the Judge will probably lose patience and send her to State Prison. That will probably be for a minimum of 16 months, which I believe is the the lower of 16 months/2 years/3 years for the underlying offense.
Of course with good time work time, on 16 months you get out in 8 months.
I used to handle paperwork for this is how I remember. But, doing State time is MUCH tougher than County time.
