David Gilmour - Gilmour's Son Released From Jail After Four Months
DAVID GILMOUR's son has been freed from jail four months after he was sentenced for taking part in a riot during student protests in London last year (10).
The Pink Floyd rocker's adopted son Charlie was sentenced to 16 months behind bars for violent disorder for his part in a mass demonstration over a huge hike in university tuition fees.
The 21 year old trampled on a war memorial during the demo and also urged other protesters to attack the British capital's Houses of Parliament.
His lawyers filed an appeal to fight his sentence last month (Oct11) but a judge turned down the request, ruling his punishment was not "unduly harsh".
However, he was released from prison in Norfolk, England on Tuesday (15Nov11) after serving just four months of his 16-month sentence and was collected by his famous father in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes.
Gilmour has been ordered to wear an electronic tag for another four months.
His lawyer Robert Brown says, "Charlie Gilmour was released from Hmp (Her Majesty's Prison) Wayland subject to him complying with a home detention curfew - commonly known as tagging.
"The curfew will continue until the halfway point of his 16-month sentence."
