Accompanied by her 19-year-old boy toy Charlie Hill, Linda Hogan was spotted arriving at LAX Airport today, explaining how she cried when her 18-year-old son Nick was released after being in prison for 166 days of an eight month sentence for reckless driving.
Speaking about the DUI car wreck which left good family friend John Graziano seriously injured and in need of lifelong medical care, Linda said, "He's a changed person. He went into prison as a juvenile, and you know he’s experienced something that is gonna mold and change him for the rest of his life, for his adult life. He wants to make a positive difference in this world.”
"I cried when I hugged him," Linda said, holding up a "Welcome Home" sign and yellow balloons greeting her son. “Basically we just feel that we as a family wanna stay private. I hope everybody can respect his privacy. He’s had six months in jail, and he’s just gotta try to regroup and remold his life. In the future, I think his actions will speak louder than words, so really there’s not a whole lot else to say,” she pleaded.
Nick spent his first day back with his lawyer and attended meetings with his probation officer and doctor appointments. "I think when people just watch, [they'll see] he's a changed person," Linda said.
When asked how he's changed, Linda explained, "For the better. You know he really just wants to try to be serious and make a difference, wants to look into colleges and just be a kid.”
