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!

I am so glad that these stars are finally getting the same treatment that the rest of us would get. I am so sick of them messing up and getting off..all it shows us that yes they have more money than us and yes they get more breaks because of their power and money..but none of us should ever think that they are better than us because they aren't and I am glade for the judges that aren't star struck!!!! They all need to respect the law like us or do their time like we do when we mess up!!!!

How pregnant is Nichole? Did she GET PREGNANT AFTER SHE FOUND OUT SHE WILL HAVE A TRIAL AND MAY GO TO JAIL??? I think THIS IS A PLANNED AND TIMED PREGNANCY - HOPING this would help her EVADE HER JAIL TIME. You think????

know it all    

All you HATERS..... secretly, YOU WISH you had her life !!!
I used to live in LA, and I partied from Hollywood to Malibu to Ventura for almost nine years... and I'll tell you what, it was the best !!! No regrets. I never got picked up for DUI, but I wasn't always a good girl.
Look, all I'm saying is, these young Hollywood types are having the time of their life, let 'em have it.
YOU'D DO IT if you could, trust me, I know.

#79 yea you sound like a stupid "adult" child.... and no i wouldn't do it...you think its just dumba** like you that live in CA...NOT....maybe you should go to ER sometime and see what my husband see's there after a drunk decides to take a whole family out!!!! or see a person with the top of their head taken off or how about their whole head.... or would your rather see a small child like that??? i think everybody that gets picked up on a dui should have to visist an ER after a drunk destroys a family...see the blood and guts and if that don't get you than check out the family especially if it's a younger child that just lost their entire family because of drunk a**holes... you think it's fine and dandy to go out there and party it up and get in a car and drive like nicole go the wrong way down a freeway..those of you that has never drove in CA don't know what it's like...it's bad enough around here without the drunks on the road..... no one goes under 80mph, the freeways are always busy, and than to have a drunk behind the wheel is just asking for trouble...if nicole hit a car head on and both was going 80 that would have been pretty damn ugly, and if anybody survived it would be nicole cause she was so messed up...so #79 would you like the cops to come to your house and tell you that your entire family is gone because of a party girl or guy...think about it.......

She's got a bun in the oven. I'd say, maybe, she's ALREADY been screwed?

Isn't she a Paris wannabe. All of these so-called childwomen should have a good stay in jail, but not behind bars, but working the hard shift in jail. Scared of their own shadow when amongst the jailbirds. The taxpayers are fed up with this. sus

some people dont want to talk about the fact that PARIS was offered to stay in a pay jail and SHE chose not to. Now i think that if Nicole has the same fate as Paris and goes to jail she'll be staying at a pay jail like Martha Stewart where the beds are slightly more coumfy and the food is more nutritious

Finally exposed - shes a wierdo    

Here we go again. Another no-talent, jobless, stupid dumbass trying to get around having to pay the piper; this one is trying by "getting pregnant". I cannot believe that this mental midget actually thought that getting pregnant would keep her out of jail. Talk about stupid.

What's even worse is her father doesn't even seem concerned. He's out there making money, and, when interviewed about this daughter, he pleads innocence about anything she's doing. No wonder she evolved into a paris wannabe socialite; no parental involvement or supervision...

As long as her pregnancy is accommodated then she can rest in jail just fine.

Does anyone think the pregnancy was planned to make a judge to be more lenient with her? She should go to jail regardless if she's pregnant or not.
