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!

Wow, what a bunch of cruel comments, I guess no one
here who has
commented has ever had any issues or problems. Lets not forget she is
human like us all, Everyone figures she is famous so lets shoot her
down, What if she was your sister, wife or somone you care about.
You all say what a loss, she's so beautiful, what a waste of talent,
what about looking at her as a person. She is somone who needs some
help, Something jail is not going to give her. So give it a rest,
Maybe someone will treat you bad when one of you fall through
the cracks.Good luck Mindy, I hope you get better and things turn
around for you.
