Foxy Brown Released From Solitary Confinement

Brown, born Inga Marchand, was supposed to do 76 days in the unit but only served 40.
According to reports, Brown, along with four other female inmates at the Rose M. Singer facility, where the Brooklyn MC has been jailed since Aug. 22, were given early release.
"Foxy is out and her spirits never wavered," Brown's manager Chaz Williams tells Billboard.com. "While in solitary, she continued to answer each and every fan letter. She also told me she wrote some pretty hot songs while there. She's back in the law library and looks forward to ending this chapter in her life."
As previously reported, Brown was sentenced to 76 days of "punitive segregation" on Oct. 16, after committing three violations at Rikers Island.
Brown was sentenced on Sept. 8 to a year in jail for violating her probation after several arrests, including an altercation with two nail salon employees in August 2004 and assaulting a neighbor with a BlackBerry cell phone.
