Tyson Gets 24 Hours In Jail

by

Mike Tyson was sentenced Monday to 24 hours in jail and three years’ probation for drug possession and driving under the influence.

The former heavyweight champion had pleaded guilty in September to a single felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor DUI count.

“I take responsibility for my actions,” Tyson told Superior Court Judge Helene Abrams in an almost inaudible voice before she handed down the sentence.

Tyson, who will begin serving his jail time Tuesday morning, left the courthouse without speaking to reporters.
