George Michael moved to softer prison

George Michael has been moved to a softer prison. The singer was taken from London’s Pentonville prison to Highpoint Prison, Suffolk, East England, where he is expected to serve the rest of his sentence for driving while under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis.

George was given the eight-week sentence on Tuesday for crashing his Range Rover into a shop in July. He was found slumped behind the wheel by tow police officers. Half of George’s sentence will be served in custody, the other half will be spent under the supervision of the probation service.

The Careless Whisper singer abandoned plans to appeal his sentence Friday after lawyers warned him he had already received a light sentence and faced the possibility his jail term could be increased on appeal.

“George was playing with fire,” a source said. “He was quite fortunate to escape with a two-month stretch.”

George, 48, was locked on a wing for vulnerable prisoners at Pentonville, but said to have still been mocked by other prisoners, and spent much of his time at the prison weeping and staying in his cell.

The singer is believed to now be in a single man cell at the Highpoint prison he has been moved to, which houses around 1,000 inmates who are mainly middle-aged drug offenders at the end of their jail terms.

George’s jailing comes after he received a community sentence two years ago for driving while under the influence of drugs. He was also been handed fines and a five year driving ban alongside his prison term.
