On Monday, former WWE star Hulk Hogan essentially asked a judge: "What'cha gonna do when we ask that my son gets released from solitary confinement of you?!?!"
In a three-sentence order, though, Philip J. Federico denied the motion by attorneys for Nick Bollea, one that claimed the confinement was "cruel and unusual punishment."
"Had there been a need for such arguments, a hearing would have been scheduled," court public information officer Ron Stuart said, according to The St. Petersburg Times.
As a result, Nick Bollea is still housed in solitary at Pinellas County Jail because as a minor he can't be released into the adult population. Needless to say, the young man isn't enjoying his time alone.
Attorneys say he's spending 16 to 17 hours a day in the maximum-security cell, where his food is delivered through a slot in the door, causing him "unbearable anxiety." Bollea requested a transfer to monitored home confinement or the minimum-security area.
Do you feel sorry for Bollea? Or is he getting what he deserves for driving recklessly?
