Mindy McCready Sent to the Slammer!

9/14/2007 4:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A judge just sentenced Mindy McCready to one year in County Jail for violating her probation. She does it all the time!

McCready was arrested in Florida in July after cops responded to a domestic dispute between the country singer and her mother. Mindy was convicted in 2004 on a prescription drug fraud charge, and was ordered to serve three years probation. She only had a few more months left on that probation when she was arrested.

McCready has now been convicted on a felony charge. In addition to the jail time, the judge gave her two more years of probation and 200 additional hours of community service. In the courtroom, the judge was clear: if Mindy doesn't perform her community service, he'll put her back in jail again.

An emotional Mindy, in court today wearing an orange jumpsuit, spoke out to the judge.

"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," she said. "Please give me a chance to make things as right as they can possibly be."

The judge sent her directly to jail. Do not pass go!

Mindy McCready in the past has done a lot for sick kids. Hope she finds help and stops doing what she has done to get locked up.

To #10 post ~ Mindy was on Oprah and talked about her drugs and alcohol problems, along with her depression. She said she was in treatment for her problems and on meds for bipolar. But she chose not to stay clean and sober and discontinue with her treatment. She has had many opportunities that the average person would not get and she has also gotten breaks from the judge that the average person would also not get but she is the one that messed up, no one did it for her. I feel Mindy should serve her time that the judge gave her. Maybe this will be her wake-up call that she has needed for a very long time............

Sounds like you've had lots of chances to "make it right," Mindy. Now, you're going to have to wait a year or so before you get another chance to "make it right."

Shut up and do your time, hon.
