Actor Edward Furlong was sentenced to six months in jail according to a review of recent court records. Furlong, who starred in "Terminator 2" and multiple episodes of "CSI: NY," was given the jail time due to probation violations from a 2010 case.
A report on March 5 from CBS Los Angeles indicates that Furlong disobeyed the terms of a domestic violence case sentence which involved probation. In that original case he was convicted for violation of a restraining order. He continues to be a part of another pending case involving battery of an ex-girlfriend, and has restraining orders by both his that ex-girlfriend, and an ex-wife.
As of this report his attorney Brian Michaels hasn't given any comments on the case. While the judge has made this sentence rather stiff, indicating he doesn't want the actor released early or given credit for time served, there are records showing he could be released in late May.
Edward Furlong's movie resume includes 1991's "Terminator 2," 92's "Pet Semetary II" and 98's "America History X" among numerous other roles. As for TV, Furlong appeared on the "CSI: NY" series on CBS as Shane Case in five different episodes in 2006 and 2010. He also appeared as his John Connor character from "Terminator 2" in a "Saturday Night Live" segment back in 1991.
