Motion: Denied! Nick Hogan Stays In The Big House

TMZ is reporting that Nick Hogan's request to be released from jail so that he can serve out the remainder of his 8-month sentence (for pleading no contest after causing a crash that seriously injured his best friend John Graziano who remains hospitalized in a vegetative state) has been denied. Imagine that! He's actually going to have to pay for the crime he plead no contest to:

Poor Nick Hogan! A judge has just denied his request to be let out til his 18th birthday. For now, Nicky Boy will stay put in the Pinellas County, Fla. jail. 17-year-old Nick -- whose real name is Nick Bollea -- complained he was essentially in solitary confinement, isolated from the general population, saying it "wasn't fair." Tell that to John Graziano and his family. He wanted to be placed under house arrest til his bday in mid July, presumably because his parents have been such a good influence on him.

The fact that Nick is actually suffering in jail is good ... maybe he will actually learn the lesson that he was sent there to learn. Kudos to the judge for not buckling under the pressure to placate the Hogan family. Maybe they'll learn a lesson, too. Click HERE to read the court documents relating to this denial. [Source]
