Boy George Sentence to Fifteen Months in Prison
Boy George, the ex-singer of Culture Club whose real name is George O’Dowd, was sentenced to fifteen months in prison today by Snaresbrook Crown Court in London.
Last month, Boy George was found guilty unanimously by a jury after a seven day trial in which he was accused of chaining a male escort to the wall in his London apartment. The escort, Audun Carlsen, also claims that Boy George beat him with a metal chain while imprisoned.
Boy George has maintained his innocence throughout the trial and sentencing.
