    The perks of being famous.. instead of serving her full sentence of 4 days, she serves only 1 hour 22 minutes.

    I doubt any of us “mere mortals” could be so lucky?!?!

    I doubt anyone is in awe of Nicole Richie’s celebrity. This is how everyone gets sentenced. The good thing about the nicole,paris, lindsay sentencing is that they are opening people’s eyes to how lenient the justice system is.

    Yes, I guess nobody was in awe of Paris’ celebrity when she got a reduced sentence from 45 days to 23 days, (that wouldn’t happened to any non-celebrity, we would serve our orginal sentence and that’s that) and also when she was sent home by an officer in less than 4 days of her first sentence of 23 days because of “medical conditions (that wouldn’t happened to one of us non-celebrity’s, medical condition or not… we would not be sent home!.) Yes, I do beleive celebrity’s do get away with more than what any of us could, remember O.J Simpson, he got away with murder?

    So just to recap: 2DUIs (plus a history of drug addiction)= 36 minutes of jail (total 82 minutes in jail facility to process her) AND she still has her license!!

    Wow, and people wonder why there’s so much crime in Cali!

    Completely unbelievable! I’m going to pop some kind of drug and drive the wrong way on some highway too and plead the Richie defense. This crap only happens to celebs. The rest of us would have been beat or shot by the cops let alone sent to jail for much longer sentences. Ass wipes!

    True, but if it were you or I in her shoes, we would of served the full 96 hour sentence and NOT BE LET GO after 82 minutes. Being who she is had ALOT to do with WHY she only spend 35 minutes in a jail cell and spent the other 47 minutes being booked!

    She could of killed someone driving the wrong way down a highway, and all she got was 82 minutes! But I guess if your rich & famous your allowed to put other citizens at risk and do as you please!

    Not disputing your facts. However, point still remains that she should not be blamed for time spent or not spent! Blame the system! Rich or not, you DO NOT get charged/sentenced for a crime you “could have” or “would have” committed except in a Tom Cruise’s movie. Those really ticked off about it (especially the hot-shot gossip lawyer!) should work on getting the laws changed instead of all this hatin’ at blog sites!

    I know people arrested on DUI, sentenced to 10 days, and gone home after one night. It is NOT just celebs — it happens ALL THE TIME. The idea is to keep the jails from overcrowding and if it is a case where the person seems to have figured out that they screwed up, and not a chronic case, they let them go. The process of having it on your record is the main part. That’s why they processed her, then sent her home.

    Stop whining over celeb treatment. It was Paris, who continually violated after only getting probation — no jail sentence — and STILL acted like it was the judge’s fault, like her mother taught her to do and acted like herself, that got a celeb-style jail sentence. Even hers was reduced almost to half. Nicole has shown she has the maturity to accept her sentence and knows what she did was wrong.

    Nicole has shown a different attitude than paris right from the start. She NEVER denied anything, and in fact took responsibility right away and admitted what she had done. Smoking pot does NOT show up on a Breathalyzer. She didn’t have to admit that. She didn’t have to apologize and cooperate and willingly do her time. She could have cried and whined that it wasn’t FAIR that she was treated like everyone else like Paris did.

    But no. That’s not Nicole’s style. She’s a real person, and acts with class and dignity and maturity and that is part of why the system realized it was better to process her and get her record showing a jail sentence and then send her home than to keep her in jail. Nicole has learned her lesson.

    Actually, plenty of people get treated just this way. people are released early, mere mortal people, yep it’s true. But the common sheep believe everything they hear, So the media says she gets special treatment, therefore, it must be true
