Nick Bollea, aka Nick Hogan, filed a motion through his attorney Monday saying he’s being wrongly held in the Pinellas County Jail and asking to be released, it has been reported.
Hulk Hogan’s only son is serving eight months for the reckless accident that left friend John Graziano with permanent injuries.
MyFox Tampa Bay reports that “Hogan is upset that he has to serve his time in solitary confinement because he’s not old enough to join the adult prison population.”
His attorney read a statement: “…the 17-year-old minor is being wrongly held in isolated lockdown in the Pinellas County Jail for up to 17 hours a day despite his status as a non-violent, first-time offender with no juvenile record.”
He then asked the judge to let Nick serve under house arrest until he turns 18.
“This situation creates an unbearable anxiety for a minor in solitary confinement,” reads the motion filed Monday. It goes on to say Hogan’s “current confinement is neither fair nor acceptable and creates a mental and physical health risk to a seventeen year old.”
The attorney also complained about the invasion of prvacy with the Hogans phone calls to their son, released to the media.
After Nick’s 18th birthday on July 27, the attorney wants him to return to jail to serve the rest of his sentence with the general inmate population.Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
