Earlier today, James Rainford pled no contest to misdemeanor battery for allegedly smacking Cy Waits in the back of the head as the couple walked into the Van Nuys Courthouse.

Rainford was already on probation stemming from an incident at Hilton's pad last year -- and today, the judge threw the book at him.

In addition to the jail time, Rainford was sentenced to three years informal probation and ordered to stay away from Waits once he's released.

The problem here is he isn't famous and has lots of money. Peasants justice has been served.

So why can't this happen to the "Stars".

Blow up California already. Don't let the people know it's coming. This country would be 100 times better without those blowhards.
