Boy George Found Guilty

Boy George was found guilty in his false imprisonment trial in the UK and may go to jail.
Boy George faces jail next month for falsely imprisoning a rent boy at his flat. The openly gay 80s singer was told in court today that custody was 'the most likely option' after a jury convicted him of handcuffing Norwegian male escort Audun Carlsen to a wall at his flat in Shoreditch.The 46-year-old singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, also beat Carlsen, 29, with a metal chain as he tried to escape from his flat in east London after a kinky photographic session, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard. 'Dowd looked ashen-faced as the female foreman of the jury delivered the verdict.

He licked his lips nervously and spoke only to confirm that he understood the new condition of his bail, that he should live and sleep at an address which was handed on a piece of paper to the court. Judge David Radford told O'Dowd: 'The fact that your bail is being continued does not imply that this will be dealt with by a non-custodial sentence. I don't want any false expectations created.' The case was adjourned for sentence on January 16.
