Who are they?
Famous movie stars and sport superstars get caught doing incredibly horrible things but yet they get either let off the hook or get a couple of days in the slammer. The people that fall in that line are athletes, movie stars, big business owners, and anyone that is well known.
One main superstar that comes to mind is Paris Hilton. Paris was arrested in September of 2006 for drunk driving. She had her licenses suspended but yet she still decided to drive. In February Paris was pulled over for not only driving without a license, but for drunk driving and speeding as well. On May of 2007 Paris was sent to jail for 45 days. 2 acts of drunk driving with a suspended license and she only sentenced for 45 days! Any normal person would have much higher consciences for their actions. Paris was just let off the hook after her 45 messily days in court; No fines, court fees, alcohol classes, ignition interlock and she never even had her car impounded.
Former NFL superstar Michael Vick was arrested on Monday of December 11, 2007 on running a dog fighting operation on his own property. During court he lied to the grand jury when they asked the question “Was a pit bull ever killed during the fighting.” And Michael responded “No”. Michael then later confessed saying that “Yes some dogs were killed due to the dog fighting.” Because he wasn’t honest he received a harsher punishment of 23 months in federal prison and three years’ probation. But yet it was still not the typical dog fighting sentence of three to four years.
Who can forget about former “Hall a Famer” running back O.J. Simpson? O.J. was convicted of killing his ex wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. O.J. hired the top notch defense attorneys Johnnie Cochran and F. Lee Bailey. The police found DNA of all three on O.J.’s sock, clothes, and his ford bronco. Mr. Cochran convinced the jury that the evidence was mishandled and created to show as if O.J. actually killed Nichole and Lee....
