Nick Hogan sentenced to 8 months in jail

Nick Hogan, nee Nick Bollea, the 17-year-old son of former wrestler Hulk Hogan, was sentenced Friday (May 9) by a Florida judge for his role in the August car crash that left his best friend, John Graziano, critically injured, according to

Pleading nolo contendere (or "no contest" for those of you who don't watch 5 hours of "Law & Order" every night), the mini-Hulkster will serve eight months in jail, after which he will be put on five years' probation. After his release from prison, Nick must perform 500 hours of community service, as well as complete a DUI school within his first year on the outside.

Finally, throughout his probation, Nick is prohibited from drinking alcohol of any kind.

In a statement to the court, Nick reportedly apologized to the victim's family.

So was the jail sentence just? Too much? Too little? All I know is that Jack McCoy would have been a lot tougher on him. Sound off below.


Nick Hogan is expected to enter a plea on Friday in his wreckless driving case that put his friend and passenger John Graziano in a coma and seriously injured.

The Hulkster's son is evidently going to enter an open plea even though a deal hasn't been reached. That means the judge will make the call on whether or not Hogan will go to prison and if so, for how long.

Nick has a bad love for speed. This isn't the first time he's smashed a car and accused of drag racing.

What do you think? Should Nick Hogan go to prison for the maximum sentence of 5 years or should he get off this time?


Today in Clearwater, Florida, a judge sentenced Nick Bollea, son of famous WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan, to eight months in jail for reckless driving. Last August Bollea crashed his father's yellow modified Toyota Supra into a palm tree while street racing. Not only did he total the car, but his friend John Graziano who was riding shotgun that night will now require lifetime medical care for his critical injuries. The young Hogan was reportedly led off to serve his sentence immediately after it was handed down by the judge. In addition to the jail time, Bollea will also be on probation for five years and lose his drivers license for three. After all the hoopla that's led us to this point in Nick Bollea's tragic story, the only thing we can say is that the roads are probably safer tonight.
