Boy George sentenced to 15 months in prison

Boy George has been sentenced to 15 months in prison.
The singer - who was tried under his real name George O'Dowd - received the
jail term at London's Snaresbrook Crown Court after he was
found guilty of falsely imprisoning a male escort at his East London
apartment during a drug-fuelled naked photo shoot.
Judge David Radford, when handing down the punishment, told George he was
guilty of "gratuitous violence" and branded his actions "callous" and
"degrading".
The former Culture Club frontman was found guilty last month of detaining
Norwegian model Audun Carlsen when he visited the singer's home in April
2007.
The 29-year-old Scandinavian alleged that George and an unnamed male
attacked him, handcuffed him and attached him to a hook drilled into the
wall next to his bed.
Carlsen also claimed George, 47, beat him with a chain as he tried to escape
from the property in just his underwear, trainers and the handcuffs.
Carlsen - who managed to free himself by unscrewing the hook from the wall
using the handcuffs - said in court: "I would never have consented to that.
I would never have been chained up. I was so scared. I started running for
the front door. He tried to stop me and he had a metal chain he was hitting
me with. It hit my head and back."
George denied the charge of false imprisonment and accused Carlsen of trying
to steal private photos from his computer, which had been taken during a
meeting three months earlier.
However, he did admit to police he had handcuffed Carlsen during the photo
shoot.
The 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me Singer' will begin serving his sentence
immediately.
