Da Brat -- Rum and Soap

8/22/2008 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Da Brat will go where a lot of rich white criminals don't -- prison...over rum.

She was just sentenced to three years for hitting a woman with a rum bottle last October. She'll get an additional seven years probation.

The victim -- a former Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader -- was hospitalized after the attack and permanently scarred.

Ms. Brat was convicted back in 2001 for misdemeanor reckless conduct.

Later dude    

What's race got to do with anything? She could have killed that girl and then she'd be facing life..if it was joe blow on the street, he would have received a heavier sentence. These so-called celebrities need to be held accountable like everyone else and do the time. So stop it with the race card because that's b.s.

I'm a black woman but I don't understand how this could be a racist situation. It's not like this was her first offense, she did the crime now she'll do the time. It sucks for her but that's how it goes...

hmmmm. i know plenty of people who've gotten a lot less time than that for assault. i don't think it's racist by any means, but i think they are trying to make an example out of her.

Ok, first of all, some silly, air-headed little rich, white girl getting pulled over for DUI is a little different than agg. assault. This is also not her first offence. She is a danger to society and it has nothing to do with her being black. Why must you (TMZ) always make things about race. There are so many other factors in this case and race is not one of them. This young woman is a dangerous criminal and she needs to be incarcerated for her own good as well as the good of her community. When you put silly surveys about race on there, you diminish the seriousness of the story. This is about a young lady who was assaulted and permenantly scarred, not about whether DaBrat would have gotten a lighter (no pun intended) sentence if she were white.

TMZ IS RELEASE THERAPY FOR RACIST    

12% of the population is black 80-85% of the prisons are black.Whites commit 50% more crimes than blacks---likely to get 50% less time for the same crime than black.Of course it's racism,don't have to believe me just look at the STATE DEPARTMENT REPORT.Most racist country in the world--but we try to police the rest of the world.

I don't care if it's DRUNK DRIVING or MURDER and all in between.....you do the crime your azz needs to do th TIME!

A little bit much? Guys, a three year sentence will work out to a year with good behavior. But she should do it all AND more if I had my way. You don't permanently scare someone and think 3 years is too much. That woman will see Da Brat everytime she looks in the mirror. And for what? This piece of trash has a rap sheet longer than the mississippi, amazon, and nile put together.

No more of these crap. It's no sexy. It's not cool. You get slashed in the face then tell me how sexy & cool it is - especially for a woman.
