Mother Earth may get up to a yearâ€™s break if Nicole Richie is sentenced like her gal pal Paris Hilton. Californiaâ€™s vehicle code states if there are two DUI convictions in any ten year period the criminal may be sentenced to 90 days to a year, along with suspension of driving privileges. Richie was convicted of a misdemeanor DUI in 2003. On December 11, 2006 she again was caught driving drunk, admitted to smoking pot and taking Vicoden, the Rush Limbaugh drug of choice. Police said no drugs were found on her or in her car. Yeah, I believe that.
Richie told David Letterman recently she’s afraid she may go to jail. Meanwhile, the rest of us remain hopeful that she has an opportunity to look Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer in the eye, and that he treats her the same way heâ€™s treated everyone else in his 35 years on the bench. Judge Sauer is renowned for his calm demeanor and fairness. Itâ€™s only right that Mother Earth get a reprieve from the likes of Richie and Hilton after all the damage theyâ€™ve collectedly heaped upon her with the stupid, unnecessary, frivolous helicopter â€œrescuesâ€ and the freakinâ€™ Hummer she drives her — what? — 87 pounds around in.
