Foxy Brown Indicted for Assault, Facing a Year in Prison

foxy-1.jpgFoxy Brown was indicted in Brooklyn today (September 7) on charges that she assaulted her neighbor with a Blackberry cell-phone. A short time later, the troubled rapper appeared in a Manhattan courtroom to learn how much longer she will sit in a cell at New York’s Riker’s Island correctional facility. According to the Associated Press, before the hearing began, Foxy apologized to Judge Melissa Jackson and asked for another chance. “I’m willing to do whatever I need to do to change,” she 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.” But Judge Jackson has apparently had enough of Foxy’s repeated arrests and disregard for the three year probation sentence she has been serving since last year. “Ms. Marchand, it’s too little, too late,” the judge told Foxy, whose real name is Inga Marchand. “I’m glad you’re learning something; that’s a positive.” Jackson also reportedly rejected a deal offered by prosecutors that would’ve landed Fox Boogie in jail for nine months in return for a misdemeanor guilty plea, noting that the Brooklyn rapper knew she would face a full year in jail for any probation violations. Probation Department attorney Matilda Leo informed the judge of the Brooklyn indictment and read four probation violations that have been filed against Brown. The hearing is scheduled to continue later this afternoon, check back with for updates.
