Happy Birthday Nick: Welcome to Big People Jail

7/22/2008 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Turning 18 has its benefits -- you get to vote, you can join the Army, and, if you're Nick Bollea, you get transferred to the adult section of jail.

Bollea, who has been housed with other juveniles at Pinellas County Jail, will be moved to the adult portion of the facility on Sunday, aka his 18th birthday. It's an open dormitory type of setting where he'll be in close contact with other adult inmates. The inmates are either awaiting sentencing or have already been sentenced in cases ranging from misdemeanors to felonies.

The only way this won't go down is if a judge orders otherwise. He'll be released sometime in October.

How the hell can anyone feel bad for Nick , he was and is an accident waiting to happen. It's a shame that he isn't laying in that hospital bed instead of John. John is the one to feel sorry for. Hulk hogan could have prevented this if he would have took the keys away from nick after he got stopped for speeding not once but twice within 20 minutes and hulk was with him, what kind of parent lets a 17 yr old kid keep driving when he gets stopped 2 times in 20 minutes? That is ridiculous. And as soon as he is out he will be right back at it again, hopefully nobody will get in the car with him again. he should be locked up a lot longer then he is. that's just a slap on the wrist. i hope you have an awful birthday nick you deseve it.

You idiots. Show a little common sense, and consider the facts of the matter. Nick's not the only one to blame here.

who cares - my brother would never get into a car with an intoxicated child. We hang out with people our own age, we wear our seatbelts, and we don't participate in street racing. If my brother wound up where John is, I'd say "who drugged him and placed him in that car".

John Graziano is/was a moron, and I hope he's butt raped in the hospital!!! LOL

As a corrections officer, I'm going to explain the differences between juvenile facilities and adult facilities.

Juvenile - You are forced to go to school 6 days a week, all year round. You are given healthy lunches, with no salt, no sugar ... mostly finger foods. You're told when to shower, and you are watched very closely by COs while you shower. You generally shower in a circle, in groups of 4, bathing from the same showerhead. You're not given work privileges, you have limited time on the phone, and with the television. The TV is usually turned on once a day, to watch a G-rated movie. They also have younger children who have had horrible lives, and are young enough to still be pities, not hated. Nick could actually learn something in there! Like how he had it better than so many other people, and took it all for granted.

Adult jail - Usually, in the state of Florida, adult jails are set up like military barracks. Each room has about 20 bunks. They have boiling hot water to cook with, microwaves, TV that they can watch 24 hours a day, phones they can use 24 hours a day. He'll also be in there with people far worse than him, who will make him feel like an angel. As adult inmates, you're able to work, which not only helps them to pass the time, but it earns time off their sentences. If he's lucky enough to work in the kitched, he'll eat the food prepared for the staff, not the inmates, and he will have access to salt (sounds petty, but it's a BIG deal. we often bust people trying to smuggle salt back to the dorms). He'll have commissary, where you can buy ice creams during yard time, cold sodas, boardgames ... and also, in adult jail, you can have things sent to you, as long as they're purchased by a family memeber on the internet, and shipped to the jail (ie, whatever books he wants, some jails even allow your family to buy you clothes).

And what's really, really sad about all your rape jokes is that John is more likely to be sexually abused where he's at, than Nick is where he's at. Most people in county jails are there awaiting trial, and don't want to add any more charges to what they've got, and also people who have been given light sentences, and wouldn't want to risk prison for rape. County jail is also used to temporarily house inmates going to prison, but those inmates are kept separate.

Everybody involved in this situation could have, and should have, handled it differently, but the people I see posting on here are no better than the inamtes I herd day in and day out. If the posters on here weren't hermits that never walked away from their computers, it wouldn't be long before their mouths landed them right next to Nick, and in some cases - John. Rape isn't funny, most of the inmates I deal with realize that. Even the worst average criminal can't stand things to do with rape. You're all going to haites, even the anti-Graziano people making rape jokes. NOT funny, just immoral and juvenile.

And, please, at least be original about it. "don't drop the soap" is the least imaginative thing you can say.
