Boy George found guilty of imprisonment

Sat 6 Dec 2008 In: International News View at Wayback View at NDHA

A jury has found gay pop star Boy George guilty of falsely imprisoning a male escort. Guilty: Boy George Auden Carlsen had told the court that George and another man had grabbed him and chained him up to a wall in the star's East London home. George admitted handcuffing Carlson to his bed, but denied punching or assaulting him. He will be sentenced next month. Judge Radfordtold the singer he was "likely" to face jail. "The fact that your bail is being continued does not imply that this will be dealt with by a non-custodial sentence," he said. "I don't want any false expectations created."
