Hulk Hogan’s son, Nick Bollea, is serving eight months in jail after pleading no contest to causing a crash that seriously injured his friend. Because he’s too young to join the jail’s general population, he is being held in solitary confinement at the Pinellas County Jail’s medical ward.
His lawyers said in a motion filed Friday that the situation is giving him “unbearable anxiety”, which he says results from spending up to 17 hours a day alone in his cell without access to amenities like educational programs.
They asked a judge to consider alternatives like releasing him with ankle monitoring until his 18th birthday or moving him to the jail’s minimum-security section. For once, it sounds like a celebrity advantage is not being used. This is a reasonable claim and should be addressed fairly by the courts. It is about his age.
