George Michael released from prison after four weeksOctober 11th, 2010 - 6:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 11 (ANI): George Michael, who was jailed for crashing his Range Rover while high on cannabis, has been released from prison after four weeks.
The pop star, 47, was freed from Highpoint Prison in Suffolk.
The former Wham! star, whose real name is Georgios Panayiotou, was jailed on September 14 after he admitted driving while unfit through drugs and possessing two cannabis cigarettes when he appeared at London’s Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, reports the Telegraph.
Michael was moved to the softer Category C Highpoint, where Moors
Murderer Myra Hindley served the last three years of her life sentence, from Pentonville in north London last month.
He was found slumped at the wheel of a car after it smashed into a branch of photo store Snappy Snaps in north London in July.
The singer, who had a previous conviction for the same offence, was told by District Judge John Perkins that there was no option but jail. (ANI)
