Hulk's Son Will Cop a Plea

5/8/2008 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick HoganLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ Nick Hogan will cop to a criminal charge in court tomorrow.

We're told Hogan will not fight the charge of felony reckless driving involving serious bodily injury. He will plead either guilty or no contest. Sources say no deal has been struck with prosecutors. Hogan will enter an "open plea," meaning the judge will have complete leeway in his sentencing and the victim and his family will have an opportunity to testify at a sentencing hearing on how the crime has affected their lives. The maximum penalty is five years in prison.

On August 26, 2007, Nick was driving a suped-up Toyota with passenger John Graziano when he crashed, severely injuring John.

We're told Hulk and the rest of Nick's family will be in Pinellas County court (Florida) tomorrow.

Just Concerned    

I totally and completely agree with comment #99. The kid made a mistake and for that so many of you want him in prison and raped. My God what does that say about yourself? Since when is it a crime to be rich in this country? I think what happened to John was a shame but two lives do not have to be lost to this terrible accident. The poor Hogan's family is being ripped to it's core right along with John's family. Try to have some empathy folks. I am quite sure that if the tables were turned and it was your child facing either John's fate or Nick's you would feel differently and you would not want your son in prison with the hopes of being raped.

Give him the 5 years and set the example.
Oh wait he's the son of a celebrity so that means he will walk away with probation.

This kid needs to do at least 6 months in jail. There he can think about the PERMANENT DAMAGE he has done to his friend! There are too many people pleading No Contest and going home and kicking back like it was nothing. He needs to learn from this mistake, and he won't unless he is given a punishment other than probation or community service.

#7, you are wrong! The person behind the wheel is responsible. My guess he will get off with no time served. What a shame. Anyone not from hollywood or money would be locked up.
