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!

Woh, you people are vicious and probably because you're behind a computer screen, cowards. If Nicole is really pregnant, which I cant see why she'd lie about it, because if she is going to get any preferential pregnancy treatment, I'm sure they will take their own test, but anyway, if she is pregnant do you people realize that is a BABY she is carrying?? Not a sunflower seed or whatever else you evil people refer to this unborn baby as.
I'd like to see one of you jerk--f's tell one of these Paris's or Nicole's or Lindsay's what you have to say to their face. ONLY A NEW YORKER WOULD!

It just keeps getting better all the time. The industry has eaten one gigantic bowl of the greasiest bean loaded chili available and Nicole, Paris, Lindsay, & Britney are the morning after results found in the toilet, pre-flush. Ummm, yummy!! More chili, please....with cheese! Great young female role models worth defending....

HILTON MAKES HEADLINES AGAIN


LOS ANGELES (San Antonio Express-News) – Hilton Hotels Corp. has agreed to an all-cash buyout from Blackstone Group. The sale, valued at $26 billion including debt, would instantly make Blackstone the world's largest hotel owner.

Blackstone said it would combine cash from its real estate and corporate private equity funds to buy all outstanding Hilton shares for a 32 percent premium, or $47.50 each.

Blackstone currently owns more than 100,000 hotel rooms in the United States and Europe, including La Quinta Inns and Suites and LXR Luxury Resorts and Hotels. With this multibillion-dollar deal, the company will control a hotel empire with nearly 600,000 rooms worldwide.

Adding the Beverly Hills–based Hilton Hotels will bring an additional 2,800 hotels and more than 480,000 rooms in 76 countries and territories, and it will include such brands as Doubletree, Embassy Suites and Hampton Inn.

While Hilton franchises the majority of its hotels, the company owns some valuable real estate including the Waldorf-Astoria in New York. Blackstone said it intends to invest heavily in Hilton and does not foresee any significant divestitures.

Pending shareholder approval, the sale will finalize at year’s end.

why?    

TMZ, you advocated for Paris and were clearly biased in her favor. Harvey Levin marched all over town and did CNN, of all things, to help cast her in a better light. Now you are not going to do this for Nicole? You are angling for her to give you an exclusive so you can make her look good and attack her critics.

You are pathetic.

5 days??? Paris got 23 for 1 DUI...well deserved by the way. This kook has 2 DUI, and admits to pain pill addiction... Good God, keep her in there long enough to give that poor baby she's having a chance!! Maybe if she gets off of her addictions and the booze, she can think about someone elce besides herself.

get out of jail free    

PREGNANT WILL SHORTEN, DELAY OR GIVE YOU A PASS ON JAIL. THE COUNTY DOES NOT WANT TO PAY FOR THE MEDICAL CARE, AND NEITHER DO YOU, THE TAXPAYERS.
IT IS JUST A FACT. I HAVE KNOWN PEOPLE WITH FAR WORSE CRIMES/RECORDS AND PREGNANCY IS THE BEST WAY TO EXCUSE YOURSELF FROM JAIL. THOUGH SHE MAY GO AND GET RELEASED A WEEK OR 2 BEFORE SHE IS DUE.....
