Unlike Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, or Nicole Richie, Foxy Brown (pictured) is looking at some serious time -- a full year for egregiously violating her parole. From the AP:
"I'm not going to give you any more chances," Criminal Court Judge Melissa Jackson told the 28-year-old rapper. "I hope you turn your life around and never again have to stand in a court of law."
Just before the hearing began, Brown, her hands shackled to a scuffed brown belt that settled on the hips of her elegant gray pantsuit, asked the judge for yet another chance at freedom and promised to straighten out her life. Jackson had jailed her Aug. 22 to await the hearing.
"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. "I realize that's not where I want to be. It's humbled me in ways I never imagined."
The judge replied, "Ms. Marchand, it's too little, too late. I'm glad you're learning something; that's a positive."
The judge found Brown had left the state without permission; had moved her residence from Brooklyn to Mahwah, N.J., without permission; had failed to notify the department of an arrest in Mahwah; had failed to report to probation officers, and had dropped court-ordered anger management sessions with a psychologist.
The one-year sentence means Brown, with time off for good behavior for her detention that began last month, will be eligible for parole in eight months.
