Boy George

Gets 15 Months

1/16/2009 9:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Boy George just has been sentenced to 15 months behind bars for chaining up a male escort in his London apartment.

A British judge handed down the sentence this morning following BG's conviction of falsely imprisoning Audun Carlsen, a Norwegian escort whom he had met on the Internet. The judge called Boy's bondage -- in which he handcuffed Carlsen to a wall hook in Boy's flat -- "premeditated," "callous" and "degrading".

In the last four years, George has been convicted of drug charges and being a "nuisance" to cops.

Wow "being a nuisance to cops". What's next "being a royal pain in the ass to cops" or "being an utter douchebag to cops"??

Sound like the perfect place for Mr George, lots of bondage and discipline there in prison, and I suppose some of his mates might fancy a little bum action as well. Enjoy.

Even thinking for one minute that you'd blame the victim makes me ill. The more they're coddled, the more perverse they become. And "Boy" seriously looks like a pig. Fattening himself up for the fun he'll have in jail.

A little harsh considering true crime out there. Also, I agree...surely a person would know what they're likely to find if they go see Boy George. Poor Boy...he isn't looking very well these days either.

Do you really want to hurt me? George will be singing MISS ME? I KNOW YOU MISS BLIND? a year and a half aint that long, maybe he can get cleaned up because he wont be getting any drugs where he is going. Wonder if they will let him take his makeup bag, then he could do drag shows for his fellow inmates, write a book saying "I knew Prison recognized a Good Drag Queen when they see one?" He will be out before 15mons with good behaivor, come out write a book. and a movie about his life.

I think BG got a RAW deal - that male hooker knew what was up and he figured he could make an extra big tip by lying. This is a CROCK.

What a waste of talent. Buoy George had a great singing voice and could have made much more of himself had it not been for his mental problems which were heightened by his legendary drug use and perversions.
