Australian jailed in Indonesia converts to Islam

Someone from Down Under has gone an almost similar route to that of onetime model Michelle Leslie, and converted while in prison:
A WEST Australian man accused of reckless driving which killed a local woman has revealed he’s converted to Islam while in prison.

Jake Drage, 23, appeared in court for the first time since the June 30 crash and says he has converted to Islam while in custody.

The former personal trainer was speeding when his motorbike collided with another in Indonesia, killing a local mother, a court heard.

He has been charged with “reckless” driving causing the death of a West Java woman who was riding pillion on a motorcycle with her teenage daughter. [...]

Asked to state his religion by the judge, Drage answered in Indonesian: “Learning Islam.”

Drage’s lawyer, Michael Hartono, told reporters his client had converted to Islam during his long detention in the police cell and attended weekly Koran recitals.

“His family, in this case his mother, hasn’t made a big deal of Jake becoming a Muslim,” he said.

“What matters most is that he’s healthy, he’s fine and he’s on the right path.

“Regarding the case, Jake tells me that he just wants this to be over soon.”
It won't be if he sticks with the Religion of Peace. It's unclear if he did this because he was forced or felt intimidated in prison and wanted to survive. But if he remains with it, then there's cause for concern, and he'll be taking the wrong path.
