Edward Furlong has been sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation from a 2010 case, court records have revealed.

The actor, most famous for his role as John Connor in Terminator 2, was charged with disobeying the terms of his probation from a 2010 domestic violence case. In that case he was convicted of violating a restraining order previously handed down by the court.

The 35 year old actor has had a troubled past, with restraining orders being imposed on him by both his ex-wife and ex-girlfriend.

He was charged just in January with battery on his ex-girlfriend. That case remains pending at this time.

Neither Furlong nor his attorney have made any public statement on his new six month prison sentence.

According to court records, Superior Court Judge Dennis Mulcahy ordered prison personnel not to release Furlong early or give him credit for time served. However, since then, other jail records have revealed that Furlong could be released as early as May, according to The Associated Press.

Furlong is a two-time Saturn Award nominee, winning the 1992 Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor for his work in Terminator 2.

He also won the 1992 MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance for his work in the film.

Although Furlong had some promising early roles, his career soon declined with multiple arrests and court cases, and enduring substance abuse and alcoholism.
