Boris Becker will be moved to softer jail within weeks and may serve only TEN months behind bars before spending remainder of his two-and-a-half-year jail term on electronic tag

  • He received 30-month jail term for hiding £2.5m of assets to avoid paying debts
  • Likely to be moved to lower security prison because his offences weren’t violent
  • ボリス・ベッカー will be moved to a low-security prison within weeks and may serve just 10 months behind bars before spending the rest of his two-and-a-half-year sentence on an electronic tag.

    The disgraced former tennis star, 54, arrived on Friday at HMP Wandsworth, a category B prison just over two miles from ウィンブルドン‘s Centre Court where he won three Grand Slam titles.

    Wandsworth is also a remand prison used to temporarily detain criminals who are later transferred to serve their sentences elsewhere, and because Mr Becker’s offences were non-violent it is likely his new jail will have a lower security category.

    New inmates taken into Wandsworth prison are forced to remain in the lockup’s ‘induction wingfor seven to ten days upon arrival due to ongoing Covid restrictions.

    Becker may then be transferred to general population, but new inmates would typically need to be in the prison for at least six weeks, showing good behaviour, before being considered for worker roles.

    Jerry Petherick told 太陽: ‘Gyms are very popular in prisonsit’s a job a lot of prisoners want.

    But it is unlikely that Becker will be able to step into such a role any time soon.
