George Michael Almost Done Serving Jail Sentence

Grammy award-winning singer George Michael has served a little over three weeks of his four-week jail sentence, and he recently told the media that he is doing fine in jail. After pleading guilty to driving under the influence of marijuana in August, Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in prison, but told he would only spend half of it behind bars and the other half on probation after being released.

Michael told the press that he has been treated with kindness in jail, but not special treatment. He said that he spends most of his time reading his thousands of letters from fans wishing him well and giving him support.

Last July, Michael crashed his car into a storefront in London. Police found him passed out behind the wheel and in possession of marijuana cigarettes. Michael at first publicly joked about the incident, but later told the sentencing judge that he was serious about getting over his addictions and had entered rehab.

Michael was arrested in 2007 for driving under the influence of drugs. He was banned from driving for two years and sentenced to 100 hours of community service. Michael was arrested in 2008 for drug possession. His current sentence for DUI also includes a fine and he will be banned from driving for five years.
