Foxy Receives Good Probation Report, Says Anger Management Is Helping Her “Mature”
Rapper Foxy Brown appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court today (Jan. 17) and received an exemplary review from her probation officer. According to the Associated Press, probation officials gave a report to Judge Melissa Jackson that has classified Foxy’s behavior as excellent. Fox Boogie has repeatedly clashed with Judge Jackson, most recently at her hearing on Dec. 11, 2006, during which the Judge threatened Fox with jail time after probation officials accused her of not taking her sentence seriously. However, the rapper’s outlook on the situation seems to have changed somewhat in the last month. “This is only the first time in two years that I’m pleased with Judge Jackson,” the Ill Na Na said as she left court with her attorney, State Senator John Sampson. Foxy is serving three years probation as a result of her guilty plea in an assault case involving two nail salon employees who claimed she kicked and hit them during a dispute over payment. Brown commented that her required meetings with her probation officer have added structure to her life and that she has “matured a lot” since attending the anger-management classes that are a condition of her sentence.
