George Michael

Gets 8 Weeks in Jail

9/14/2010 11:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So much for 'Freedom' ... George Michael has just been sentenced to serve 8 weeks in a London jail for driving under the influence of drugs on July 4.

The 47-year-old singer has previously admitted to getting behind the wheel of his Range Rover while high on weed and crashing into a photo shop.

A dapper-looking George, seen above on his way into  the courtroom, seemed to be in good spirits before the sentencing.

So far, no word on when George will begin his stint behind bars.

In the UK you start your sentence immediately, and you generally serve half of the sentence, so he will already be in prison and will be out in approx 4 weeks. Poss a little bit less.

Guess he should've put on a shirt skirt & wrote F U on his finger, then maybe he would've gotten off easy like OTHERS, whom shell remain nameless...no underwear would have gotten him 8 days instead of 8mo's...Guess the Judges will wait till one of the famous ppl gets pissy drunk & kill someone before they get the point that they (Judges) R PART OF THE PROBLEM !!!!stop giving light a** sentences & maybe they'll (stars)finally get the freaken point !

Why people with so much money like this guy don't hire a driver so they can smoke or drink all they wanted... I wish to have 1/3 of his money and the my first two assistants will be a chef & a driver !

Travesty of justice! George's accidents have nothing to do with weed - he's just an incredibly ****ty driver.

In Her Majesty's Prisons, George will have access to any drugs, alcohol or sex he requires and as a high profile prisoner he will be exempt from ' dirty hand ' duties and will be provided with a single cell with internet, tv and games console. He would be wise to convert to the Muslim faith as he will then be given preferential treatment with special menus, 24 hr prayer access and meeting rooms. Because of the dreaded Human Rights Act (BE VERY VERY GRATEFUL THAT IT HASN'T REACHED THE US) prisoners will be able to sue the authorities if they don't have access to porn, or cosmetic treatment or condoms. Many prisoners are allowed to go shopping as long as they promise to come back to their cell before dark. George Michael will suffer no hardship and will be rewarded with a million pound payoff from the British tabloids for his ' Exclusive ' !!
