Scott Harrison’s Appeal Denied, Prison Could Come Soon

by David P. Greisman

It was late last year that troubled former featherweight titleholder Scott Harrison was sentenced to four more years behind bars for charges dating back to 2007. Now it looks like that prison time could soon begin.

Harrison, 35, had sought to have his sentence suspended, but that appeal has been rejected, according to British newspaper The Scotsman. Harrison was part of a group that assaulted three men at a Spanish brothel all those years ago.

Harrison “has been given just two weeks to comply with the demand to begin serving his jail sentence,” the newspaper said last week. “Should Harrison fail to travel from Scotland to Spain to start his term before the deadline, the court will enact proceedings to forcibly have him sent to the country.”

He previously spent two and a half years in prison for an incident in which he assaulted a police officer and another man, and attempted to steal a car. He was released in September 2011.

Harrison came back to the ring last year — his first bouts since November 2005 — winning twice. His most recent bout was last month, when he lost a unanimous decision to lightweight prospect Liam Walsh. That defeat dropped his record to 27-3-2 with 15 knockouts.

He's an idiot and destined to spend a lot more time behind bars. Lets hope he sorts himself out and becomes a better person.
