Mccready Going Back To Jail

Troubled country singer MINDY MCCREADY is heading back to jail on Tuesday (30Sep08) after voluntarily agreeing to serve time for a probation violation.
The star, 32, was arrested for prescription drug fraud in June (08), an incident which was considered a violation of her probation relating to a 2004 drug arrest. That conviction led to MCCready losing custody of her two-year-old son, Zander.
She has now reached a deal with prosecutors which will see her check into a Tennessee prison where she will serve a 60-day sentence, reports People.com.
In a statement released on Monday (29Sep08), she says, "I am working very hard to put all of this behind me as quickly as possible so I can get back to what I like to do most: sing, write songs, and entertain.
"I would like to thank my fans for their unwavering support as I continue to work on my recovery and to regain custody of my precious son, Zander."
Her attorney Lee Ofman adds, "The successful completion of this sentence will satisfy her obligation to the State of Tennessee resulting from her probation violation."
It isn't the first time MCCready has been in trouble for breaking the rules of her probation - she was arrested in 2005 for failing to notify her probation officer that she was heading out of state, and jailed in 2007 after attacking her mother in a scuffle in Florida.
