Michelle Rodriguez Submitted False Community Service Forms


You may have read in other places today that Michelle Rodriguez is in danger of having her probation revoked and spending some quality time with the inmates of the fine State of California. It is possible, but extremely unlikely that she could be sentenced to up to 537 days in jail. A more reasonable maximum would be 477, but that is still a bunch of time to eat prison food.

What no one has mentioned, and which I found very interesting is that Michelle Rodriguez was in New York City on September 25, 2006 but she submitted a signed statement which was also allegedly signed by her supervisor that Michelle was doing community service here in LA.

When that little tidbit was brought to her attention, Michelle stipulated she had been in NY and that she in fact had not done community service on that day.

Later, in another pleading when Michelle said she was done with community service, her idiot lawyer left in the September 25, 2006 date again and said Michelle was done. Obviously she wasn't done with community service since she still hadn't done any community service on that day.

The problem with what she did is now the prosecutors are going to go over each and every day she claimed she was doing community service and make sure she actually did it. If it is just one mistake, she will probably be okay, but if lots of the days were falsified, it would be big trouble as that in itself is a separate violation of the penal code.

I don't know about anybody else, but I find Ent's legal breakdown and insights re: celebrity scofflaws fascinating. It turns her trip back to court from routine to an "Uh-oh. Better dump that laissez-faire attitude, girlfriend!"
