If Convicted,

Nicole Richie is Screwed

7/6/2007 4:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0706_richie_3-1Will a sympathetic judge delay Nicole Richie's mandatory jail sentence if she's convicted? Don't get your hopes up, honey.

TMZ did some checking on the guy in the robe who will preside over her case and sentence her if she's convicted. The guy is Los Angeles County Commissioner Steven Lubell. The legal eagles who have appeared in his courtroom say he's tough and very much by the book. He will not give Richie any special treatment, and our sources say her pregnancy won't amount to squat when it comes to serving time.

Richie's trial is scheduled to begin next Wednesday. If convicted, it will be her second DUI and she'll face a minimum of five days in jail.

Lynnwood ladies -- let's get ready to rumble!

For Nicole Ritchie to brag about being unwed and 4 months pregnant, is a disgrace. What's even worse is he bragging about smoking pot & drinking, all this time. They should throw her ass in jail, and make sure when this baby is born it's placed ina good home. She's proved she cares nothing about the health of this unborn child and is too busy putting her needs ahead of anyone elses. Just goes to show, everytime the media plasters the news & magazines about these unwed, but pregnant girls, more end up this way. Whatever happened to getting married, then deciding to raise a family.

Any of your "legal eagels" know what excuse she is going to use to defend herself?

I can't even she how she can defend herself. You have to be pretty messed up to drive the wrong way down a freeway.

She was driving the freeway in the wrong direction! What is her defense? Oopsy? I now realize that driving in the wrong direction is no longer cute? They were prescription drugs, your honor, so they don't count!

I call bullshit    

....expect a sudden and convenient miscarriage after her sentence has been announced. I honestly think she is trying to pull the wool over the judges eyes with the fake pregnancy and using the media to get the message to him....

She hasn't been convicted of anything yet. Does anyone have a tape of her driving the wrong way? Maybe we should just have the judge read some of the opinions from TMZ POST AND THAT WAY HE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE A SOUND JUDGEMENT
