Montana Fishburne had checked into an inpatient facility back in September that specialized in anger management, behavioral problems, and mental illnesses. What was first reported as a 30-day treatment program is now being reported as 90 days. I had wondered where she was and why were they keeping her in longer.
Her lawyer have now gone to court claiming the prosecutors have gone back on their agreement which would have kept Montana out of prison if she had entered the 90-day program. I believe this is the same criminal case where she and her boyfriend Jerome Greene broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home, dragged her into the bathroom, and started beating her.
Montana’s lawyer claim that prosecutors changed their plea deal in November and now want her to serve 120 days in prison. Her lawyer is now asking a judge to enforce the agreement that they had first agreed on. Montana has now returned back to the treatment program for another 180 days.
I believe keeping her far away from her boyfriend is the best thing for her. Hopefully she can return to her family one day and make her own decisions from now on without being influenced by him. Jerome had Montana working the streets since she was 18-years-old after his mother told them she couldn’t stay at her home for free.
The prosecutor’s explanation for pulling the plea deal was that it took too long to reach the agreement and that he is entitled as a prosecutor to change his mind.
It’s been previously reported that Montana’s father Laurence Fishburne had been secretly paying for his daughter’s legal bills without her knowing.
