Nick Bollea (a.k.a. Nick Hogan) was sentenced to eight months in Florida County Jail today after pleading no contest to charges of felony reckless driving. Wow, a book finally got thrown at a celeb that deserved it. Check out the details from People:
In addition to the jail time, which begins immediately, Bollea, 17, was sentenced to 5 years probation, during which he will serve 500 hours of community service, not be allowed to drink any alcohol and have his driver’s license revoked for 3 years.
“I think there is an understanding of what happened, and there is a sense of acceptance of responsibility,” the judge said, explaining his decision. “There is nothing that the court can impose that is close to what John has dealt with or will have to deal with as he moves forward.”
Leaving the courthouse, Bollea’s family did not address reporters. His attorneys did say that Bollea was “happy” with the sentence, and happy that the case was finished.
All I have to say is, Brooke, if you need any comforting, I’m here for you. Back massage, dip in the hot tub, erotic Parcheesi, you name it. I’m here for you like a rock. A strong rock with rock pecs, biceps and rocky good looks carved from, well, rocks. But moving on, I know it must be tough thinking your dad’s money would save your brother, but these things happen. So, please, don’t hesitate to call – or even put on a bikini and drive to my house. You know, to start the healing process. It’s all about the healing.
EDIT: Added photos of Nick and his family in court. Still can’t believe this kid got any jail time at all. I figured they’d take away his PlayStation for a few days, but then totally give it back after he says “I’m sorry, mama.”
