Big Freedia gets three years probation for housing voucher case


New Orlean bounce artist and reality TV star Big Freedia*got closure in a months-long housing voucher case in which the performer admitted using nearly $35,000 in Section 8 funds.*Freedia avoided jail time, but most serve three years on probation*? including submitting to regular drug testing and performing 100 hours of community service ? as well as paying full restitution.

"I apologize to my New Orleans community," Freedia said Aug. 25 in U.S. District Court. "I'm embarrassed of my conduct."

Reading a letter to the court, Freedia ?*in a shimmering black blazer and long blonde hair ? thanked probation officers for guiding her through substance abuse treatment, which she was ordered to receive (along with a stay in a halfway house)*after failing a drug test*earlier this year.*"It was an awesome course," Freedia said.?
