Diana Ross Ordered to Serve More Jail Time

This strikes us as patently unfair. Singer Diana Ross was sentenced to 48 hours in jail for a Tuscon, AZ D.U.I. conviction. She was allowed to serve the time in jail in her home town of Greenwich. The Greenwich police chief certified she completed her sentence over three days, with two overnights.

The Judge in Tuscon has ordered her back to Tucson to spend another 48 hours in jail. Why? She only spent 47 actual hours in custody, and left the Greenwich jail on occasion so that her 47 hours were not continuous.

So why not have her makeup the excess hours? Why does she lose credit for the 47 hours she spent in jail? The original sentencing order did not specify the hours had to be continuous. Sounds bogus to us. We hope she appeals.
