9 Celebrities Who Have Gotten Away with CrimesThe unfairness of punishment? Lack of equality before the law and courts? If all people should be equally punished for crimes, some celebrities have gotten away with crimes. Into the eyes of the crowd, celebrities often take on the role of example, especially for the youngest. This image becomes shattered when they commit crimes, and even more so when they do not pay the price. What really happened? How did it happen? What celebrities are concerned? Follow us and learn more about these stories of celebrities breaking the law that say a lot...
Khloe Kardashian is the last born of Kardashian's sisters. She got a rap sheet when she was age 23. In March 2007, she has been arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence. She has been sentenced to three years probation as well as an alcohol education class, but just denied it. A few months after, admitting she did none accomplished any of the sentences, the sentence became more rigorous and she was put in jail. She stayed there literally 2 hours and 53 minutes, due to a miraculous policy of releasing "nonviolent offenders" and "overcrowding". Thank you fame and money...
We could say Snoop Dog has a trouble past. Snoop Dog or Calvin Broadus was charged with first-degree murder in 1995 after a member of a rival gang was shot to death by his bodyguard Lee McKinley while in the celeb's vehicle. Back then, he was only 21. Although the shot was fatal, a few months after the pair were surprisingly acquitted of the crime, thanks to the lawyer who has "proven" it was just an act of "self-defense".
Chris Brown's clashes with the law reflect a real descent into hell. If the most displayed of his alteration with justice was back in 2009 when he assaulted his former girlfriend Rihanna, Chris Brown has a long list of "I went too far" moments. One of these was back in 2013 when he and his bodyguard assaulted someone who had just tried to get into a picture. Even though the assault was proven, Chris Brown was released after under two days in jail and hours of community service. Most civilians would not have been treated to such leniency.
Back in the late '60s, Senator Ted Kennedy became more well-known for the Chappaquiddick accident than for his political debates. Ted Kennedy drove his car and veered off a bridge and plunged into the water. Instead of calling for assistance, he saved himself and swam to safety, leaving her passenger there alone. Mary Jo Kopechne, 28 years old drowned and did not survive. He fled the scene and only reported the incident 9 hours after the dead body of Mary Jo Kopechne was found dead. If he pleaded guilty for leaving the scene and being responsible for the crash. For some hard-to-explain reasons, he was not charged with anything related to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. As brave as...
Does money talk? Sometimes, no doubt, it does. We know Paris Hilton has a life in full swing, so you would not be surprised to learn that Paris Hilton was on probation for reckless conduct and driving under the influence of alcohol (and more). She has violated the mandate and was sentenced for 45 days in jail. However, she has been released after a few short days and transferred to a probation department for "medical reasons"...
Jay-Z settled down? Not after quite a cloudy past. In 1999, Jay-Z was at a launching party in the company of Puffy, Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Lil Cease, etc. for a night to be remembered. It has, but not in a good way... That night Jay-Z stabbed his rival record executive Lance Riviera with a five-inch knife after an altercation. If it usually leads to jail, a great amount of money of $600,000 and a good lier, oops, lawyer were enough to buy his innocence.
It seems like the pop star has a troubling timeline and a long rap sheet. To accompany his hits? In 2013, Bieber was charged with assault for repeatedly hitting the driver of his limousine on the head. The driver of the limousine stopped the car and called the police. The charges were dropped later in 2014. He was later charged for vandalism for egging his neighbor's house. A few months later, he was arrested for DUI as well as resisting arrest, driving with an expired license, underage drinking in Miami, behind the wheel of a rented Lamborghini. Marijuana and Xanax inside his blood. A big donation of $50,000 deal made him clear again.
Back then in 1963, when Laura Bush was only 17 years old, the former First Lady and wife of George W.Bush jumped a red sign and collided with a vehicle, causing the death of the sole occupant of this vehicle. He was also 17 years old and one of her classmates. If this accident is hard to explain and raises many questions, Laura Bush, previously Laura Welch was not charged for any crime.
A spilled drink can cost a lot with P. Diddy, or Sean Combs for his original name. During an altercation in a nightclub in 1999, he fired his gun after his friend had opened the gunshot and injured three bystanders. He was charged for gun possession and bribery. Strangely, he has been cleared of any charge. How? Good question and only one answer: money given to those injured.
Let’s finish on a note of hope. She just fell: Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison. What you sow you reap. At some point...
