A former champion boxer, Mike Tyson has made a startling confession.
According to the retired boxer, he slept with a female prison warder in order to reduce his six years prison sentence.
Recall that 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 vladtv.com said that he slept with a prison counselor 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 GED (General Educational Development) in order to reduce the term, so he helped himself by dating the 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.
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 counselor 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.
