Nicole Richie's Motherhood = Leniency In DUI Probation

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanNicole RichieLegal Matters


Got your attention, didn't we Lilo? Thought we might.

This morning, a judge ruled in favor of extending Nicole Richie's probation by a year. It seems being a full-time mommy has kept her busy, too busy to finish the required number of alcohol ed courses.

Nicky's probation from her 2006 DUI was suppose to terminate next month, but her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, explained to the judge that because Nicky had "program-approved" leaves of absence in order to deliver and care for her two kids, she couldn't complete the required number classes.

The judge agreed to extend the sentence until March, 2011, as well as offering to end her probation earlier if she completes the program before March.

Hey, wait a second? Shawn Chapman Holley? That's Lindsanity's lawyer!

How come she didn't tell LiLo about the magic baby clause??? (Could you imagine???)

    How hard it is to go to a class? I don't care who you are. I work two jobs, volunteer three times a week (2-4 hours per day) and care for a family. Tell me how hard is it to attend a freaking class? So hard you have to get an extension into 2011???
    I just don't understand their thinking or how a judge can logically allow it.

    Re: HellaD – I agree - it's still shows being a celeb/having $$$ gets you special treatment… Not sure what this post was trying to prove besides a lame attempt at a joke.

    Although I'm not dumb enough to be in either situation, I'd love to see how lenient this judge would be had it be I who had 2 children, in two years, out of wedlock and then complained I was too busy to complete an alcohol education class……..

    well it depends.. maybe there are those who actually want to be a hands on mother and those who just throw their kids to a nanny…

    Re: April 20th – what does having the kids out of wedlock have to do with anything?

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – nothing really…….kinda like what does having children have to do with not completing judge ordered classes?

    Re: italiano89 – Yeah, but she does have a baby daddy who can take care of kids for a few hours a week. She still had time to get her hair did and go too all sorts of "celebrity" events.
    I agree with the people saying she only got off because she's a celebutard. She's done NOTHING worthwhile and needs to be a real grown up and handle her court mandated responsibilities.

    That beeah needs to go to jail just like all the other drunken fools who are in contempt of court. How is that not partial, leniant, unlawful…etc. They had a predetermined date…she missed it…she goes to jail.
    They are all ignorant and stuck in an unreal world. Come to our side of the country and pull that shit Judge…and Nicole…keep your asses in the west were you are bankrupting your own states.

    That is bullshit! I am sure she has nannies to watch her babies. If she has the time to make public appearances she can go to her classes!!!!

    Re: April 20th – i agree theres no excuse for why she hasnt finished. but i just dont see the need to bring up having the kids out of wedlock.

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – if i offended you, sorry…..we tend to be on the same page…….. :)

    Oh god. Dont give her ideas! There will be fire crotches everywhere :(

    Hey Perez! How about the fact that Nicole is not continually in trouble with the law…do you think that might have something to do with it?

    And for those *parents* broadcasting that they are doing this that and the other and claiming bcause of their situation Nicole should be able to do the classes, get off your high horse. If you are truly a parent, then you know just how hard things can get. Just because you magically do it all on your own, other people should suck it up? Makes no sense.

    Good job Nicole for taking care of business, raising two healthy children, AND avoid negative press like Lindsey Lohan.

    OMG PEREZ!! Do NOT give Linsanity any ideas!!!! lol

    Amazing that so many women manage to have children and work and yet this self centered annorexic can't even manage to go to something like 10 classes over the course of 2 years?! Did the judge know that she was just over in Australia? how long did that trip take, my guess is she could have finished a few classes instead of taking that trip.

    I think it more has to do with the fact she got herself together. No re-offense. No shady dealings. Just raising a family and doing charity work. This looks good in the eyes of judges. Also, she got approval for absences, which is also important. Judges just want people to learn their lesson and not re-offend. That's it.

    Well to be fair she isnt out in clubs, and skipping class and whatever. She is busy being a mother and trying to make a real living and going to the class. Following all the rules and not violating the terms of probation.

    Re: April 20th – haha no im not offended was just curious. and i know its werid…usually i 100% agree with everything you say….has to be an off day lol

    a responsible parent takes care of their problems in a timely manner. she should not be rewarded for getting knocked up and spawning. she should be punished for that.
    i hate celebrity justice. it's total bullshit.

  20. 20

    I think it has been quite obvious over the past few years that she is staying on the straight line and more responsible, she does go out but not on bar tables and getting wasted so that should count for something and I am happy to see her staying clean and mature….Lindsay on the other hand does not give a damn and has no interest in admitting she has a problem and getting her shit together

    Re: HellaD
    Agreed, I have friends who are parents of young children. They work … some are even going to college. I bet they'd have a good laugh at this story…..

    Oh please. It's called the fucking nanny that she has. She just used her kids as an excuse. How pathetic of that nasty twig.
