Despite their fame, celebrities are people just like us. And just like us, we often hear about celebrities breaking the law, sometimes with horrific consequences. As we are about to find out, however, the privileged position celebrities have in our society allows them to get reduced sentences and / or even to get away with it. We have put together a list of the ten most horrible crimes ever committed by celebrities, along with the penalties they suffered after the fact. Like you may have already imagined, the punishment doesn’t seem to fit the crime most of the time, even though justice is served every once in a while.
7Mark Wahlberg – Assault, repeated offenses
Mark Wahlberg is one of the most celebrated actors in Hollywood. Surprisingly, Mark’s life has not always been celebrated; in fact the “Lone Survivor” actor was in trouble with the Boston PD more than 20 times in his youth.
