Country singer Mindy McCready sent to jail for 1 year
Country singer Mindy McCready (who is basically famous for getting in so much trouble) has been sentenced to one year in jail for breaking probation after she was charged in a domestic dispute in Florida.
McCready has been locked up in jail since July when she returned to Tennessee after scratching her mother in a scuffle and resisting arrest in her hometown of Fort Myers, Fla.
McCready received a suspended three-year sentence in 2004 for fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers.
Now she will serve the next year in jail.
"Your honor, I can honestly tell you this: This has been the longest two months of my life ... not being able to hold my son ... has been excruciatingly painful."
"I could only say I'm sorry," Mindy said as she sobbed before the judge. "Please give me a chance to make things as right as they can possibly be."
The judge didn't buy it. Circuit Judge Jeff Bivins did, however, give McCready a 75 day credit for time served and placed her on 2 year probation after release.
