Nick Hogan has finally been transferred out of his solitary confinement cell at his request. It seems Nick was under unbearable stress being alone all that time each day. He was being held in solitary because he is a minor.
Nick is serving an 8 month sentence for his role in the car crash that left his friend John Graziano critically injured.
Nick pleaded no contest to the charges of reckless driving involving serious bodily injury last month, and was sentenced to 8 months in jail. He also received probation for five years and 500 hours of community service. He is also not allowed to drive for three years and must complete a DUI school within one year of his release.
The passenger, Graziano, a former U.S. Marine, was left brain-damaged after sustaining a broken skull. Police reports state that Nick Hogan was driving his Toyota Supra at a high rate of speed in a race against a Dodge Viper when he lost control and slammed into a raised median. The car flipped and the rear of the vehicle collided with a palm tree.
Nick has now been transferred out of a solitary cell into one with three other inmates.
Nick Hogan didn’t use the best judgement in racing the other car, but it is hard not to feel for the poor guy. He’ll have to live with knowing he is the reason for his friend, Graziano’s medical state.
