Richie to Prosecutor

Your Drug Test on Me Stinks!

7/10/2007 8:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a document that holds the key to Nicole Richie's DUI defense -- she will claim the drug tests cops performed on her were bogus. Life isn't simple!

0710_nicole_doc_launch_fm_01-1
The declaration, filed today by Shawn Chapman Holley, Nicole's lawyer, states, "Dr. Terence McGee as a defense expert ... will challenge the prosecutor's scientific evidence and the conclusions reached by the drug recognition expert."

The pregnant Richie's trial was set to begin tomorrow morning. Chapman Holley appeared before the Commissioner today and asked for a continuance until August 5, because Dr. McGee is not available until then. The commissioner ordered them back to court tomorrow to decide whether he will grant the request for a continuance.

This is an interesting poem written by Sarah Jessica Parker or someone like her that seems appropriate to this item:

"Rhyming Can Be Messy: A Poem"

Oh what a farce
to think I can parse!
One appears as a lunatic
to try rhyming Palahniuk
with anything.

To attempt to rhyme "smack"
with "Jack Kerouac,"
that's an easier task:
any jerk-off could hack it

But finishing the race
with Bukowski on one's face
is not a fate to be erased
without some disgrace
or a Kleenex.

yeah, because police officers always administer fake drug cases? even if was faked, that still wouldn't explain why she was speeding in the wrong direction at night. Face it you bitch, it's JAIL TIME!!! And hopefully it'll be worse than Paris's too.

I thought there could be no more delays . . .

Washington: Nicole Richie is set to face her DUI trial on a new date as ordered by a Los Angeles Superior Court.

The socialite, whose lawyers have already been successful in delaying the case five times have got new date for the trial that will now take place on 11th July.

It looks like ‘The Simple Life’ actress who has been escaping trial from long time, will have to stand it this time, for according to Los Angeles District Attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison, Commissioner Steven Lubell does not want any more delays in the case. “Commissioner Steven Lubell did not want any more delays. The trial is now set for July 11. It must happen within 10 days of that date or Richie must enter a plea,” US Weekly quoted Robinson, as saying.

However, Richie’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley insisted that the actress might not attend the trial this time as well and they are studying the case to form grounds for plea agreement in lieu of trial.

“Just because it is set for trial that does not mean we are going to trial. We are still discussing things and we are still looking at the case,” Holley said.

The lawyer also revealed that there was nothing much that took place during the trial this time, just that a new date was given because he had to go for a vacation.

“Judges are under orders to get things moving. Nothing extraordinary happened today. The case had been set for trial on the 25th and I’m going on vacation on the 28th. He just said no further continuances without good cause. He vacated the trial and set a new date,” Holley said.

The actress is facing trial for her arrest on December 11, 2006, when she was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after she failed a field sobriety test.

She admitted to using marijuana and Vicodin before the incident.

Earlier also she has been arrested in Malibu, California and charged with possession of heroin in February 2003. She was also driving with a suspended driver’s license.

If Richie undergoes trial she might be convicted for minimum 5 days or even one year in the slammer.

YAWN    

I don't think that driving on the wrong side of the FREEWAY is just a "simple mistake". She could have killed a car with young children in it - but it's okay, because she giggled about it on Letterman...
