Foxy Brown Sentenced To One Year In Jail For Violating Probation

foxy-deaf-prison.jpgA New York criminal judge sentenced Foxy Brown to one year in jail on Friday (September 7) for violating her probation multiple times, according to a New York spokesperson for the Department of Probation. The troubled, pregnant rapper received the maximum penalty.

Brown (real name: Inga Marchand) had been in custody at the all-women Rose M. Singer Center at Rikers Island prison since August 22. She was ordered there after violating her probation in two separate incidents (see "Foxy Brown Sent To Jail For Violating Probation"). The violation stems from two separate incidents, Ryan confirmed: Brown's recent arrest for allegedly assaulting her neighbor with a BlackBerry cell phone and for leaving the jurisdiction of New York without court permission.

In a separate hearing earlier in the day, Brown was indicted on assault charges stemming from the physical encounter with her neighbor.

Spokesman Jack Ryan told MTV News that Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson held a "lengthy" hearing in which she scolded the rapper for not abiding by her probation guidelines, which included attending anger-management classes and regular meetings with a probation officer.
