Chris Brown will have to remain in jail for another 131 days. The Grammy winning R&B singer admitted to violating his probation after an incident last October (2013) outside a hotel in Washington, D.C., and now must sit in jail longer.
During a court appearance on Friday (May 9), Brown admitted to committing the Washington, D.C. crime where he was charged with misdemeanor assault for punching a 20-year-old man.
Brown was facing four years for violating his probation, but according to the AP, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced him to a year and gave him eight months credit for the time already served in jail (since-mid March) and in rehab. The 131 days also includes credit for good behavior in the LA county jail, Brown being young when the attack on Rihanna took place and his recent bipolar diagnosis.
Brown’s probation violation stems from his 2009 felony assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna. He will remain on probation until Jan 23 and will still have to complete the remainder of his 1,000 hours of community labor once he is released from jail.
Our prayers to Chris Brown!
