Judge Joe Brown's back on the outside after spending 5 days in what he calls "slave quarters."
The ex-TV judge completed his sentence in Memphis Tuesday morning, and ripped the jail experience. JB told People, "Jail's jail. It's boring, it's dirty, but I survived. I'm breathing free air."
As we reported ... Brown was locked up for contempt of court -- he went off on the judge last year when he was an attorney on a child support case.
Despite the conditions ... Joe says he'd do it all over again to stand up for his client, and blamed the judge for being impatient.
