article imageSinger George Michael leaves prison serving half of his sentence

By KJ Mullins     Oct 11, 2010 in Entertainment
British singer George Michael spent the last four weeks behind bars after being convicted of driving under the influence for a second time. He was sentenced to eight weeks but was released early.
Michael spent three of the four weeks at Suffolk’s Highpoint Prison in East England after the first week in London's rough Pentonville Prison.
Michael said that his time at Highpoint was not a source of anxiety and that fellow inmates were kind to him.
Michael sent the following message in a press release.
“Please believe me when I tell you that in the last three weeks there have been no tears, no anxiety, no bullying, in fact not so much as a sleepless night for me. On the contrary, I have been treated with kindness by fellow in-mates and prison staff alike and as far as I can tell, have received no special treatment of any kind whatsoever.”
"Most of my days have been spent reading thousands of letters and postcards of incredible support from people around the world. I promise to repay their kindness with new music as soon as I possibly can."
It is expected that Michael will be under probation for the duration of the sentence. He has lost his driver's license for five years.
