Sheriff to Nick -- Your Trap's An Open Book

7/15/2008 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick Hogan and his folks want all his jailhouse whinin' and cryin' kept under wraps, but the sheriff says they can shove it -- i.e., in full view of the world.

The Pinellas County Sheriff says that jailhouse calls are public records and that Nick can't expect any privacy within the jail. They say the records are "non-confidential" and that there's no special treatment for anyone. Even if your grandma makes homoerotic jokes about hot dogs.

TMZ obtained 26 hours of Nick's phone calls and rolled out some of the real howlers, including a ridiculous suggestion that God was punishing victim John Graziano, convos about Nick's reality show, and Granny's infamous d*** joke.

The Hogans had sued last month to stop the release of the tapes.

Sorry, but I still don't think that any conversations made by inmates should be public record. If they are taped and monitored, I have no problem with that. But the tapes and monitoring should be done by law enforcement and only available to law enforcement for purposes of protecting other prisoners and ongoing investigations into criminal activities.

I think the whole world should be able to hear what they have to say. It tells the TRUTH about if the person is sorry for the crime or not. Clearly Nick is not and he wishes to keep that private. Too bad whine ass!

You do the crime, you pay with time and you give up your right to privacy. Good for the sheriff. Maybe when buttmunch gets out, they will all have a big party for him under one roof and a bomb will drop on em all. Ahhh...wishful thinking.

It maybe shouldnt be made public but from Nicks attitude Im glad it is. Hes a spoiled brat and if he gets a reality show out of this it will just make him look worse There will be a lot of crocodile tears from him on the show Im sure. LOSER!
