Boxing legend, Mike Tyson made a shocking revelation that he slept with a prison counselor in order to reduce his prison sentence.
Tyson was arrested decade ago for alleged for rape of an 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant,Though he still denies the claim till today, he was convicted in 1992 and sentenced to six years in prison.
But later spent less than 3 years at the Indiana Youth Centre before being released in 1995 , he also gotten a fourth year added to it because of his bad behavior while locked up.
Speaking about his life in prison in an interview, he said he was supposed to spend 4 years and needed to pass the GED (General Educational Development) in order to reduce the term, so he helped himself by dating the counselor.
Tyson stated that; “I got in trouble like the first six months and stuff, cursing, getting written up. And then by that time, I got the hang of the place. ‘Hey, I know how to do this.’ Next thing you know, I’m dating one of the counsel workers now, she’s letting me have sex with her now.”
Further talking he said “So I’m going good. But the first six months I was getting write-ups, I have to pay that year back. … I’m like a star pupil prisoner. Trusty, everything. Then, ‘Hey Mike, remember the first six months you were a prick?’ Boom. They gave me another year,” he added.
I wanted to shave the year off of his sentence, badly and I found out that i could reduce his time if he got his GED. I began dating a prison counselor in order to get her to pass him.
He said; “So by passing the GED they took that year away.
He said that I flunked the f*cking GED … and got mad, and so I had to start dating this counselor and stuff, giving her money and doing really some nasty stuff to her, and she let me pass this test.”
Refering back to the incident, Tyson admitted that he should’ve been in prison for a lot longer. He was initially slammed with over 50 years.
“I came in with 50-something but later did only 3 years, i was doing 69 at first—they gave me 63, no. Then they took 10 off, then it was 53. And then they gave me 10, I had to do three, I got seven on parole, I guess, yeah.
