Denied! No Probation For Rip Torn!

| Filed under: Legal Matters


Eh, they should have let him have it. The man is banging hard on death's door. What's prison gonna do him?

This morning, Rip Torn and his reps respectfully asked a Connecticut judge for admittance for Rip into a special probation program that would have cleared his name from all the charges he faces. (Remember? He broke into a bank, drunk, with a gun and told everyone that was his house.)

The judge said no way!

Because the charges are so serious and Rip has a history of alcohol abuse, the judge denied his request, meaning the case will go to trial. Rip could get a mandatory minimum 1-year prison sentence should he be found guilty.

Seriously, the man is senile. Just put him in a nice nursing home with some oatmeal and reruns of Ghost Whisperer and we bet you'll never hear a peep from him again!

    I feel kinda bad for him because he's old but i was in jail (dui) with lots of old guys just like him and older who WEREN'T FAMOUS and had to do their time for much less than he did.

    NO he should not have everything dropped! Why, because he's old? Too goddamn bad. He wasn't too old to break into a bank wielding a gun drunk off his ass, was he? Let him face this music and have his day in court. He can always plead not guilty–probably be found not guilty–he's a celebrity afterall!
