Freed From Conservatorship, Britney Spears Given Power To Execute Her Own Documents Wednesday

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) - A post-conservatorship hearing was held Wednesday for pop-star Britney Spears.

Last month, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge formally ended the nearly 14-year long conservatorship that allowed her father, Jamie Spears, and others almost total control over the 40-year-old's life and finances.
