Chris Brown Sentenced to Jail for Probation Violation
R&B singer Chris Brown has been sentenced to serve an additional 131 days in jail after admitting to a judge that he violated his probation.
During a court hearing Friday in Los Angeles, Brown, 25, admitted to Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin that he committed a crime in Washington, D.C., last year. The judge sentenced the singer to serve 365 days in custody, but gave him credit for 234 days he's already spent in rehab and jail.
The Grammy Award winner has been in custody since mid-March, when he was arrested after being dismissed from a court-ordered rehab sentence. He faces a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington D.C. after a man accused the singer of hitting him outside a hotel.
Brown has been under court supervision since pleading guilty in 2009 to beating pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend.
