Boy George Sentenced To 15 Months In Jail

By Scott Lapatine / January 16, 2009

A few years back Boy George was ordered to perform community service with NYC’s Dept of Sanitation after police responded to his burglary report (turned out there was no burglar, just a lot of cocaine). Now the former pop star has been found guilty of falsely imprisoning a male escort by handcuffing him to a wall and beating him with a chain. This despite his lawyer’s excuse that his client is a “drug-crazed idiot,” according to AP. Poor Boy will be sent away for 15 months. Right before the big day, too. This should serve as a lesson to you not to do drugs/handcuff a male escort to a wall and beat him with a chain. Cue “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?” joke. [Pic via TMZ.]
