Michael has spent the last two years of his life behind bars at the Collins Correctional Center near Buffalo, New York. Michael’s mom will be having a “welcome home” party for him at her Long Island estate.
Most people probably do not remember, but a little over two years ago Michael was involved in a serious car accident (while under the influence of alcohol), and sentenced to two years in prison.
According to Brett Hudson, one of the only people to remain in contact with Michael, he is a changed man. “I’ve spoken to him often and I know it. The last time around, Michael would never admit he’d done anything wrong. Now, he not only admits his past mistakes, but he wants to right the wrongs he’s done. And most of all, he wants to get his family back on track.”
Michael has even gone as far as to become a minister (while behind bars) to show that he is a changed man. Hudson added, “He’s actually going straight into the ministry when he gets out – the Teen Challenge ministry to help runaways and kids on drugs – trying to straighten out their lives.”
Everyone wishes Michael the best in his journey to get back on the right track, but he should probably start with fixing his relationship with his daughters before he goes out and tries to save the world.
