Edward Furlong Chooses Prison Over Rehab!

edward furlong prison sentence six months probation violation

Edward Furlong is going back to prison!

The Terminator 2 star had his own Judgment Day on Tuesday when he was sentenced to six months for violating his probation.

But according to attorney Brian Michaels, Edward actually had the chance to get his sentence drastically reduced! Mr. Michaels says:

"Mr. Furlong had the opportunity to avoid Jail in a deal my office worked out which would have resolved not just this case but two other criminal cases in Beverly Hills, by checking himself into a drug rehabilitation program, a very unusual disposition in a case that alleged violence."

So why didn't he take it?? We mean, who in their right mind wouldn't see that… oh, right. Mr. Michaels says:

"Sadly, Mr. Furlong rejected all proposals to get into drug rehabilitation, and the Court, ultimately decided that it was forced to sentence to him a hefty amount of jail time.

We are hopeful that Mr. Furlong uses this experience, unpleasant as it may be, to revisit the issue of Rehab when he is released."

We sure hope so! Instead of just putting the issue on hold for months at a time incarcerated, Edward could actually work to solve the root of the problem!

We'll just have to wait and see if the former child star wises up or continues to add to recidivism rates.

    GOOD FOR HIM; that 12-Step religious AA/NA cult "HIGHER POWER" nonsense IS KILLING PEOPLE!

    This is what happens when you pluck some poor pre-teen kid out of an arcade and put him in a massive blockbuster. I wonder what his life would have been like if he had gone to a mini-putt that day. I don't feel sorry for wife beaters but I do feel sorry for the kid he once was and the person he should have been.

    I agree with captightpants, Edward Furlong is one of my favorite actors and it breaks my heart that he couldn't reach the potential he had when he was younger, as an adult. While I agree that most AA/NA rehabs don't work, Im sure that's not the reason why he chose jail, but I think jail/prison will probably be better for him, if he lets it. I would love nothing more if he got his shit together and when he got out managed to get a good role and get a decent life back.

    Why would he choose jail over rehabilitation? I know that he has been through rehab several times, and I am guessing he doesn't believe that it works. It's possible that being forced to stay clean for six months will be more effective for him than any rehab program in the country.

    He will be about a lot sooner than 6 months. Prison overcrowding.

    Edward Furlong was my first and only celebrity crush. He is handsome, incredibly talented and has the most interesting look in his eyes.Hes got so much more than most of hollywood stars!

    I really dont care what kind of person he is. I hope someone powerful in Hollywood gives him a chance, i hope he will give himself a chance.

    I wonder if Eddie Furlong was a victim of child abuse, very common in Hollywood, according to former child star Corey Feldman.

    He was a kid, a very pretty 15 years old, when started in this business and he didnt have anybody to look after him, his tutor was 12 years older than him and after a few years living with her, he introduced her as his girlfriend…he was a minor still, wasnt he?

    So if his tutor (who nowadays works at venice high school) took advantage of him, imagine what could possibly happen between him and producers/directors…

    I would love to see some more info about hollywood dirty secrets here. That could benefit our society, make you more famous and rich…
