When celebrities are incarcerated and sentenced to a term in jail, it creates widespread disbelief and shock. It is because they are often looked upon as role models and people often believe that they aren’t prone to petty crimes. Their time behind bars manages to leave an everlasting blemish and it is something they must take to their graves as audiences can be quite unforgiving. Nonetheless, it helps us identify them as mere mortals who do have their minutes of madness every now and then. We have compiled a list on 9 celebrities who’ve had to repent their hasty judgment and mistakes behind bars.
1. Tim Allen
Isn’t it shocking to find Tim Allen on this list? Before tickling our funny bones as a comedian, the actor was struggling to make ends meet and keep his head afloat. The bills arrived on his doorstep on time, but his paycheck hardly came around uniformly. It was difficult to get by and the situated prompted him to sell drugs to make payments. Soon enough, the law enforcers caught up to his nefarious acts and arrested him for the possession of 1.4lb cocaine in 1978. Although the man was given a sentence of 3 to 7 years, he was given early parole for his cooperation and snitching ways. Thus, he only had to spend 2 years and 4 months in a Minnesotan correctional facility.
