Rapper Foxy Brown gets locked up

Foxy Brown was sentenced to one year in jail Friday for violating probation stemming from a fight with two manicurists in a New York City salon.

Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson sentenced the rapper at a probation hearing for Brown, 28.

“I’m not going to give you any more chances,” the judge told Brown. “I hope you turn your life around and never again have to stand in a court of law.”

Brown was also indicted in Brooklyn Friday on charges that she smacked a neighbor with a cell phone.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was on three years probation for assaulting two manicurists at a Manhattan nail salon in August 2004.

Just before her hearing began, Brown, in handcuffs and wearing an elegant gray pantsuit, asked the judge for yet another chance at freedom and promised to straighten out her life.

“I’m willing to do whatever I need to do to change,” Brown told the judge. She said she had made a lot of mistakes before Jackson jailed her. “I realize that’s not where I want to be. It’s humbled me in ways I never imagined.”

Jackson replied, “Ms. Marchand, it’s too little, too late. I’m glad you’re learning something; that’s a positive.”

Jackson rejected a deal in which Brown would have gone to jail for nine months in exchange for a misdemeanor guilty plea. The judge had said the defendant knew she would face a year in jail if she violated probation.

A Probation Department lawyer, Matilda Leo, read four violations the Probation Department filed against Brown. She said Brown had twice left New York without telling the court or Probation Department; that she had changed her address from Brooklyn to Mahwah, N.J., without permission; and that she had failed to tell the court she had received seven traffic summonses in New Jersey.

    she got what she wanted, jail and street credibility. Skeptical, I’m suprised you’re doing celeb news. Taking a mental break from the political scene, or is it just Friday!

  2. youngblackman,

    I do celeb news occasionally. I am not, however, taking a break from the political scene. It ain’t in my DNA.

    By the way, CONGRATS ON PASSING THE BAR !!!!!!!!
    I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, BRUH. SO PROUD!!! 🙂

  3. You know she wants her own reality show like L’il Kim. You know it.

    Good for the judge. So many of our folks, especially those who get breaks the average Pookey and Teniqua NEVER GET, just keep on thinking that their fat meat ain’t greasy.

    See ya Foxy. Don’t drop the soap (or whatever applies to women).
