Sorry, Emile Hirsch. Well, sorry NOT sorry cause you CRAY.
Remember when Emile randomly put a movie executive at Sundance in a choke hold until she blacked out? Yeah, well, time to pay the piper, bro:
Actor Emile Hirsch has been sentenced to 15 days in jail for attacking a female movie executive at Sundance, with his victim telling the court, “He choked me until I blacked out … I thought I was going to die.”
Just days after attending the premiere of his movie “Ten Thousand Saints” in LA, Hirsch appeared in court in Park City, Utah, on Monday after striking a plea deal on the felony and misdemeanor charges resulting from his nightclub attack on Paramount Digital VP Daniele Bernfeld at the film festival on Jan. 25. The 3.30 a.m. attack at Tao Nightclub was first reported by Page Six.
The actor was sentenced to 15 days in jail, starting immediately, and will be required to pay $4,750 and do 50 hours of community service. But Bernfeld told the court that his punishment doesn’t go far enough.
Issuing a statement detailing her ordeal at Hirsch’s hands, which was read in the court before the “Into The Wild” star was sentenced, Bernfeld said, “I was subjected to a violent and unprovoked attack by a complete stranger. The defendant, Emile Hirsch, put me in a chokehold, pulled me off my feet and threw me on the floor. With the full force of his weight, he choked me until I blacked out. It took two people to pull him off me, and if not for their intervention, the attack would have continued. I thought I was going to die.”

15 days in jail, 5,000 in fines and 50 hours of community service seems…very generous of the court. What do you think about his punishment? I say he lucked out, BIG TIME.
