How my 6-years sentence was reduced to 3-years – Mike Tyson


Former American professional boxer, Mike Tyson has made some sterling revelation on how he had to sleep with a female prison counsellor in order to reduce his six years prison sentence.

Recall that at the prime of his career, Tyson was arrested for raping an 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant. Although he maintains his innocence, Tyson was convicted in 1992 and sentenced to six years in prison.

The boxing legend in an interview with said that he slept with a prison counsellor in order to reduce his prison sentence during the time he was arrested for raping an 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant.

Although he pleaded not guilty to the charge, he was still incarcerated for six years but apparently, Mike had a way of dealing with the situation.

Speaking about his life in prison, he said he was supposed to spend 4 years and needed to pass the General Educational Development (GED)  in order to reduce the term, so he helped himself by dating the counsellor.

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.

He continued; “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 counsellor and stuff, giving her money and doing really some nasty stuff to her, and she let me pass this test.”

As he expected, the prison took the year off of Tyson’s sentence and he was able to go home in three years.
