Boy George Ordered To Pick Up Trash To Fulfill Plea Agreement

  • Text size: + -
Boy George isn't going to jail, but he could be picking up trash around Manhattan as part of his plea arrangement on drug possession charges.

The Manhattan District Attorney says the former Culture Club singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, must now complete five days of community service with the New York City Department of Sanitation.

O’Dowd appeared in court Monday to answer to charges he didn't carry through on conditions of his plea agreement. He was arrested last year after police found cocaine in his Lower Manhattan apartment, and later pleaded guilty to drug possession charges.

The singer has until August 28th to complete his community service. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
