Legislators in the UK such as Ann Widdecombe who said that Pete's sentence was long overdue have made it clear they intend to try and change the laws which allows someone to knock off two-thirds of their sentence.
"Nobody should come out that early.”
Well, nobody should come out that early, but it is what it is. You know the guy in Austria who abused his daughter for 24 years? The MOST he can be sentenced for is 15 years and with good behavior should be out in about 7-8 years. So, I don't think anyone expected Pete to stay in jail much longer. I mean the guy is probably desperate for a fix that doesn't involve him having sex with guys, and he has a bunch of summer concerts lined up that he has to get ready to play. I mean, who needs rehab or prison when you can go out there and make some money. Drugs cost money so have to earn it somewhere.
