Newsflash!! Ceelo Green has been on his best behavior since entering a ‘no contest’ plea deal in after being accused of rape back in 2012.
Green, who was spotted last week at Dej Loaf’s birthday celebration in Atlanta, was accused a few years back of slipping ecstasy to a female ‘friend’ without her knowledge and having sex with her while she was under the influence, he went on to plead his case in the court of public opinion (click HERE if you missed that) and lost.
The former Goodie Mob front man also conceded defeat in court by not contesting the charges, but he’s reportedly in good standing after going above and beyond in fulfilling the terms of his plea deal.
According to TMZ,
Ceelo has been a model citizen, and a sober one at that, for the last 19 months … so his probation officer is asking the judge to cut him some major slack.
According to docs filed by the PO … CeeLo exceeded the 360 hours of community service required — spending 275.5 hours at MusiCares Foundation, and 94 hours with Volunteers of America-Veterans Center.
The docs also show he’s peed clean urine in 10 drug and alcohol tests while attending all 52 AA meetings … as the court ordered.
The singer also earned glowing reviews from his therapist. He got 3 years probation for his no contest plea to furnishing ecstasy to a woman he was on a date with in 2012.
His PO wants to shift CeeLo to informal probation — which means he still has to be on his best behavior, but does NOT have to check in with the probation office.
The judge has approved the requested modification.
Great news! Now hopefully the talented artist can get back to the business of making music.
