General Hospital rumors tease that Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) might decide to fight fire with fire and dig up Michael Corinthos’ (Chad Duell) own criminal past to use against him in future episodes of GH!
General Hospital Spoilers – Yes, Michael Corinthos DOES Have A Criminal Past, And He Has Done Prison Time!
Long time General Hospital viewers will recall that Michael DOES have a criminal past, and he has done prison time! Michael killed Claudia Zacchara (Sarah Joy Brown) in an attempt to save his mother, Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and his then newborn sister, Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) from Claudia, who had kidnapped a pregnant Carly and took newborn Josslyn, Carly has gone into labor, escaping Claudia and then given birth in a nearby cabin.
However, Claudia caught up to her and as she snatched Josslyn, Michael killed her with an ax handle to the head. Even though it was killing in defense of another, similar to how Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) saved Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) by killing Shiloh Archer (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), with similar results of being convicted of manslaughter anyway. This is when Michael did time in Pentonville and Jason got himself into prison to try to protect Michael, but in spite of that Michael had been raped several times by another inmate.
Michael had gotten five years for manslaughter in the case but he too got early parole and had to live with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) as part of his parole agreement. All this has been over ten years ago now, but these types of criminal charges don’t just drop off one’s criminal record every few years like dings to a credit report! Nelle (or her attorney) can probably even find these on public records by searching the Internet since they are so old!
If one has the right information to look for and knows the right place to look, it is fairly easily found although it won’t give all the gory details. Nelle’s attorney would have to do a deep dive into Michael’s criminal history to find more detailed information.
GH Spoilers – Michael Corinthos’ Criminal Acts Have All Been In Defense Of A Child, His Newborn Sister!
However, if Nelle tries to use Michael’s criminal history against him, it could have exactly the opposite effect that she is trying to achieve; because the “murder” as she and her attorney will be bound to phrase it, rather than “manslaughter” took place in the process of trying to save his mother Carly and also his newborn sister, Josslyn. In other words, Michael would KILL if he had to in order to protect a child!

Attorney Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) could take that and turn it around quickly for Michael’s favor! Michael, Diane, Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) are already in disbelief that every single criminal charge against her was dropped, simply because of Brad Cooper (Parry Shen) giving an opposite story!
Brad truly should have not given up and pled guilty out of fear of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) because that is what helped Nelle – Sonny should have sent her on an all-expenses-paid trip to the Pine Barrens long ago before she even got pregnant with Wiley Corinthos (Erik and Theodore Olson) or involved with Michael in the first place! He KNEW she was trouble the morning she woke up in bed with him and tried to fake out that they had slept together!
