Actor Emile Hirsch was sentenced to jail for 15 days in Utah on the accusation of assaulting a female studio executive at a nightclub during the Sundance Film Festival.
The actor pleaded guilty to the woman. The accusations that were hurled up against the actor were choking, and the body was slamming making it an embarrassing physical assault.
The “into the wild” actor was intoxicated and was on high medication when he dragged the women towards the table, as reported by the police and the eyewitness.
Hirsch confronted the judge on Monday saying that he was sorry about the incidence and was keen on learning from his mistakes and ensured that he is learning to take responsibility for his absurd actions.
The actor also said that he has no excuse for the incidence that happened on the night of the 25th Jan. at the Tao Nightclub in the city of Park. The victim who has been harassed demanded a much harder punishment against the accused.
Hirsch stated that he was embarrassed about his behaviour and he also said that there was no excuse regarding the fact that he forgot the presence of chemicals inside his body.
The prosecutors fined Hirsch an amount of $4750 and another 50 hours of community service was given to him. He has been assured that if he completes his sentence then the misdemeanour will be dropped from his charge sheet.
The victim is still demanding more probes into the incident, and she stated that the authorities are treating her with dignity, but she is expecting a better punishment for the misdeed on the part of the actor.
