This past week Nicole Bobek was sentenced to a five year probation and community service for her involvement in a meth ring that was busted over a year ago.
"I’ve been given this opportunity to make a change and also prove to myself that I can come out of the hole I dug myself into. I’m given this chance to make a difference, and hopefully help others who suffer from addiction problems; do benefits, get back on the ice, and continue with my treatment and do everything I need to do to change my life around," Nicole told NBC's Matt Lauer.
But now there is some push back that she got off way too easy for her involvement in the meth ring. Prosecutors had sought a one year jail sentence but the judge opted instead for probation and community service. She was charged with selling meth to Edward Cruz Jr. who was sentenced to 16 years in prison.
Over the course of the probation she is required to continue in a drug rehab program and must pass random drug screenings. Failure to comply will land her behind bars for 10 years.
Many pundits feel her celebrity helped her a little here. She had support from many including Jo Jo Starbuck. Too easy for the former skating sweetheart?
