The sentence is harsh by Norwegian standards and 诺斯格 will have to serve jail time since no portion of his sentence was suspended. The court only needed two hours to reach a verdict after hearing 诺斯格’星期一早上在法庭上的证词。

He was found guilty not only of excessive speeding in an expensive sports car but filming it while driving with only one hand on the wheel. The judge in the case noted how a video of 诺斯格’超速驾驶表明他有意侮辱他在路上经过的汽车和卡车的司机。

诺斯格 thus was determined to have put both his life and the lives of others in danger. “令人沮丧的情况是,有几段关于他的超速驾驶的视频,根据他自己的证词,已向朋友展示,” Judge Ole Kristen Øverberg said in court, adding that 诺斯格 has a 警方类似罪行的记录.

Prosecutors asked for eight months in jail, while 诺斯格’s 防御 attorney Halvard Helle argued that six months was sufficient punishment. That would also have allowed 诺斯格 to avoid actual prison by serving with a footlink that would control his movements. The judge opted for a harsher verdict that will demand time in a prison.

命中速度为每小时221公里(每小时133英里)
诺斯格, age 34, had confessed to his 犯罪s, which also included possession of a small amount of narcotics. The former multiple World Champion and Olympic medalist in cross-country 滑雪 testified via video link, quickly admitting that his speeding was “用手机拍摄”在他的右手和“另一只手放在方向盘上”同时在80区域以每小时204公里(122英里)的速度行驶。

他的最新一句话涉及去年八月的三天中四次单独的超速驾驶事件,当时他是从奥斯陆来回到特吕西尔滑雪中心的青少年夏季滑雪营。 8月10日,他被安排在哈马尔(Hamar)以南的Espa的E6高速公路上行驶,以每小时200公里的速度行驶; 8月12日,在Elverum和Trysil之间的两车道高速公路上行驶;在8月13日,Trysil和Elverum之间的回程中,他也在同一条高速公路上行驶。 (当时他的时速为221kph或133 mph),并于当天晚些时候在Ullensaker的E6上行驶。那’终于被警察发现时。

‘Motivated’克服毒品问题
诺斯格, who 在2018年从滑雪中痛苦地退休在八月份被捕后在新闻发布会上承认他 有毒品问题。在8月13日进行血液检查后,他被宣告清醒,但后来警方在他位于奥斯陆的家中发现了毒品。星期一在法庭上发现他’在他被捕后的几个月中经常接受检查,他们’ve been clear.

诺斯格’s father, who played a key role in 诺斯格’的滑雪生涯,于10月向国家广播公司(NRK)宣称,现在爱快速滑雪的年轻人“有动力继续前进,有动力克服所有麻烦并重回正轨。” John 诺斯格, who also trained his other son Even as a professional skier, said he assembled all three of his sons in the weeks after the August august arrest. The family, from Mosvik in Trøndelag, “我想在一起度过的时间,在一起度过的必要时间。然后我们试图使日常生活正常化。这意味着Petter正在获得帮助。我们其余的人是围绕什么的动力’s happening.”

‘获得专业帮助’
John 诺斯格 claimed there was “毫无疑问,这个家庭对Petter一直很重要。也许现在比以往任何时候都更多。”  They also spent time on roller-skis at the Granåsen 滑雪 center in Trondheim, to help get Petter back in shape. 诺斯格 is also getting “professional help,”他父亲证实了他的成瘾问题。

Skeptics remain, since 诺斯格 has had a stormy career and 造成很多麻烦 为自己和他人。“我理解那些怀疑论者,” John 诺斯格 told NRK. “这里有些东西可以’根本无法捍卫,然后’更重要的是试图了解Petter的生活完全不正常。即使他去逛杂货店,他也吸引了很多注意力。” And he’s kept 惹麻烦. 诺斯格 has 偶尔赢得同情卡,而挪威球迷也 一般原谅他.

All the attention that 诺斯格 has a habit of generating “is well-meant,” his father said, “但这可能太多了。一世 ’我可以肯定他的帮助’现在得到是太棒了。我发现Petter有所不同,但这不是快速解决方案。它’佩特必须花很多时间,而他’s on the way.”
