Foxy Brown Back In Court, Lawyer Resigns
Foxy Brown Back In Court, Lawyer Resigns Website
Not even a week after being released from jail, Foxy Brown was back in court yesterday (April 22), minus her lawyer. The Brooklyn native (born Inga Marchand) appeared in court in Broward County for a status hearing for assault charges stemming from a February 2007 altercation at a beauty supply store. Foxy tried to work out a plea deal with the state attorney yesterday without the help of her lawyer; a move that resulted in her lawyer resigning from the case. The judge gave her two weeks to find a new attorney and to return to court on May 8th. Foxy was released from New York's Rikers Island prison on Friday following an eight month stint for violating her probation. Foxy was arrested in Pembroke Pines in Broward County after allegedly throwing hair glue at a beauty supply store employee last year. Police claim she became angry after being asked to leave the store since it was closing. Brown was also charged with resisting an officer with violence, battery and struggling with an officer on the scene. After posting bond, Foxy was permitted to return to New York and later wound up in trouble with the law again. Foxy was already on probation for assaulting two manicurists in a Manhattan salon in 2004. She was warned by a judge in March 2007 that she would be sent to prison for a year if she got into any trouble with the law. Five months after the warning, Foxy was sentenced and incarcerated (Sept. 7) for assaulting her neighbor, Arleen Raymond. Foxy's focus is now on her fourth studio album Brooklyn's Don Diva. The album, her first with Black Rose Entertainment/Koch Records, was supposed to drop on February 5th, but was pushed back to await the rapper's release. Brooklyn's Don Diva is scheduled to be released on May 13.
