Other Driver in Hogan Crash Sentenced

2/28/2008 9:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The driver who several witnesses say was racing Nick Hogan the night of the crash that left a man severely injured was sentenced in a Florida court today.

22-year-old Daniel Jacobs was driving a silver Dodge Viper owned by Nick's father Hulk Hogan on August 26 in Clearwater, Fla.

Hogan, whose real name is Nick Bollea, was driving his yellow Toyota Supra when he lost control on slick roads and hit a palm tree. Passenger John Graziano, a good friend of Hogan's, was seriously injured in the crash and is still in a coma, suffering from permanent brain damage.

Jacobs admitted he was driving the Viper, but did not cop to racing. A judge sentenced Jacobs to 90 days probation and ordered him to serve 25 hours of community service. He also lost his license for 90 days and must pay a $500 fine.

Hogan is scheduled to be in court on April 14.

Hell of a Deal! This guy's punishment is less than a 0.08 DUI arrest! Justice may be blind, but it sure can tell the size of the wallet.

90 days probation and 25 hours of community service?? As legal retribution for behaving insanely recklessly and landing their friend in the hospital with a (possibly everlasting) coma and permanent brain damage? Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! they should both do time! real time, like 5-15 years cause, to top it all off, nick looks like he hasn't lost a night's sleep over the whole deal. his privileged lifestyle afforded to him by moronic enabler parents has given him the idea that he's immune, and unfortunately the (astonishly stupid) legal ruling only serves to reinforce this dangerous behavior.
