Molinaassaulted Hilton outside of King West night spot in June, after Hilton andB.E.P. frontman will.i.am had a heated exchange that involved Hilton callingthe musician a derogatory name for homosexuals.
While the charges were withdrawn, Molina still faces somepenalties.
Molina is not allowed to carry any weapons in Canada and cannot come within 100 meters of the King West club. Molino would lose his $500deposit should he ignore the court orders. He additionally donated $500 to alocal women's shelter.
Molina is also forbidden from corresponding with Hilton"directly or indirectly."
Attorneys said Hilton agreed to withdraw his charges ifMolina apologized, APreports.
Molina's lawyer, Mark Sandler, read his client's writtenstatement after the hearing. "I apologize for what I did on June 22 of 2009,even though you engaged in highly offensive comments," the statement said. "Iacknowledge that these kinds of issues should not be resolved through aphysical response."
In court, Hilton's attorney Brian Greenspan said Molina'sapology was not sincere and accused the attacker of "trying to excuse hisactions," The Star reports.
In an email response to AP, Hilton said he looked forward to"reading the apology."
In a separate email to The Star, Hilton said he would sharehis opinions on the matter in his forthcoming book, "Perez Hilton's TrueBloggywood Stories: the Glamorous Life Of Beating, Cheating And Overdosing."
Molina simply offered, "I think everything that needed to besaid has pretty much been said."
Ironically at press time, the dropped charges are notaddressed on PerezHilton.com or Perez's Twitter page.
If he really feels that Molina is guilty and was out ofline, I wonder why he has dropped the charger without any explanation on hissite or Twitter page.
I guess we will have to wait for the book.
