Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion, has improved his chances of an early release from prison. Tyson is at present serving a six-year sentence for rape at the Indiana Youth Centre in Plainfield and is scheduled for release next May. However, he has just completed a six-week substance-abuse counselling programme, the completion of which Indiana law states qualifies an inmate for early release. Among the reasons why an earlier petition had been unsuccessful was his failure to complete any such programme.
