Boxing legend Mike Tyson revealed that he slept with a prison adviser to reduce his prison sentence. At the peak of his career, Tyson was arrested for violating an 18-year-old beauty pageant. Despite his innocence, the former boxing champion was convicted in 1992 and sentenced to six years in prison.
However, he remained at the Indiana Youth Center for less than 3 years and was not released until 1995. Due to his misbehavior while in detention, he also received a fourth year of tutoring. Talking about his life in prison, he said that he would have to spend four years and have to pass the GED (General Education Development) to reduce his tenure, so he helps himself by dating a counselor.
He said; “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.”
According to Tyson, he got another year tacked onto his sentence because he was so hard to deal with initially.
“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.
So by passing the GED they took that year away.
“So 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.”
