The folk star is serving a two-year jail term for laundering money on behalf of her politician ex-boyfriend, Julian Munoz, in 2013, but on Monday (01Jun15), she left the Alcala de Guadaira women's prison near Seville, Spain with her brother after qualifying for a special pass, allowing her to spend time with relatives.

Pantoja's 96 hours of freedom ended on Sunday (07Jun15), when she was taken back to the jail by her brother, Agustin. Photographers awaited the singer as she made her way back into prison looking visibly distressed.

Pantoja began her sentence in November (14) after failing to overturn her conviction.
