MINDY MCCREADY PLEADS GUILTY

Nashville's "The Tennesseean," reported that Mindy McCready pleaded guilty to prescription drug fraud in a local court on Monday. In exchange for her plea, Mindy will serve three years of supervised probation, perform 200 hours of community service and pay a $4,000 fine. The "Ten Thousand Angels" singer was arrested Aug. 5th by agents of the 21st Judicial District Drug Task Force after presenting a fraudulent prescription for OxyContin to a pharmacy in Brentwood, Tennessee. The painkiller OxyContin is often used as a heroin substitute. Mindy still says the pills weren't for her. "I haven't had a drug problem, and I don't have a drug problem," she said after her hearing at the Williamson County Courthouse. "The medication was not for me. I don't condone drug use." Mindy's attorney said she is working out a deal to hold a concert, which will raise money for the Williamson County drug fund, a program that helps drug addicts. The concert will count towards her community service.
