Chris Brown Cops Plea

No Jail Time

6/22/2009 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown has copped a plea in his assault case. He won't do jail time, but he will spend 6 months doing things like road cleanup. He's also been ordered to stay 50 yards clear of Rihanna.

Chris Brown & Rihanna: Click to watch
He'll spend 180 days doing community labor (8 hours a day -- 1440 hours total) -- which is, in effect, hard labor. He'll do his service in Virginia which is where Brown lives. A Virginia law enforcement officer told us Brown will be picking up trash, pulling weeds and washing fire trucks.

He gets 5 years probation for FELONY assault -- he pled guilty. He'll get supervised probation. He'll have to come back to court every three months.

He must enroll in a domestic violence counseling program.

This is interesting ... the judge said if Brown and Rihanna are at the same public events, the 50-yard stay away turns into 10 yards. The stay away order lasts 5 years.

The judge said she wanted to make sure that Chris Brown "was treated as any other person who comes through this court."

If Brown violates probation, he could get up to 4 years in prison.

Rihanna is in the courthouse but never entered the courtroom.

So Brown is now a convicted felon and loses the following rights: To own a gun, to sit on a jury, subject to search and seizure without a search warrant and he now has limitations on travel.

When Brown left the courtroom ... Rihanna walked in the courtroom. The judge explained the deal to her. The judge is telling Rihanna about the protective order.

So in Los Angeles, if you are famous black loser.. you can kill your wife (OJ Simpson) or beat your woman (Chris Brown)..then nothing happens. But, if you are famous and white (Spector) then you go to jail.

OMG BOTH THESE CLASSLESS FOOLS ARE STILL SEEING EACH OTHER.....HOW COME THE JUDGE DIDNT ASK THEM THAT? IT SEEMS THE WHITE JUDGE DIDNT THINK THE BLACK LITIGANTS COULD BE SO STUPID, BUT REALLY, SHE SHOULD HAVE "BLACKIFIED" THE CASE AND ASK REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY STUPID QUESTIONS. BROWN WOULD BENEFIT FROM SOLITARY CONFINEMENT NO DOUBT. JUST WATCH, AFTER HE KILLS A WHITE GIRL, THEN THE BLACK PEOPLE WILL BLAME THE WHITE MAN FOR THE NEXT JUDICIAL RULING, THERE'LL BE RIOTS, GANGBANGING, FIRES, MORE KILLINGS, LOOTINGS, NATIONAL GUARD, THEFT, WELFARE CHECK FRAUD, ETC ETC THE USUAL WATERMELON CRIMES.
HE'LL VIOLATE PROBATION BY THE WEEKEND --- BECAUSE HE'S STILL SEEING RIHANNA!!!!!!!!!

Chris Brown is a little weasel. If you can't see it on his face and his actions, you likely have some major problems too. The guy is a little rat weasel. Oh yeah, btw, I think Rhianna is as well.

HE SHOULD HAVE DONE SOME JAIL TIME INSTEAD OF ASKING FOR PROBABTION. IT WOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM SOME STREET CRED AND HE WOULD APPEAR TO BE MORE MANLY DOING THE TIME FOR THE CRIME, INSTEAD OF SISSY PROBATION.... WHHAAA WHHAAA.

The stay away order is a condition of probation. It says he cannot communicate with her in any way.

If he talks to her or goes within 50 yards of her or 10 yards (at public events) in the next 5 years, he would be violating his probation and could end up in court and go to jail.

I guess the Rich Black get off again, here my list :

Ray Lewis- accomplice to murder
Kobe Bryant- aggravated rape
P. DIDDY WEAPONS
OJ - MURDER AND ROBBERY
MIKE TYSON- RAPE
T- PAIN - BUYING MACHINE GUNS
RAE CARRUTH- MURDER

THE PROBLEM IS THERE IS TOO MONEY FOR THESE GUYS TO BE LOCKED UP, I THINK THE ALL SHOULD BE PRISON NOT JUST A FEW ,. I DONT WATCH BASKETBALL OR FOOTBALL BECUASE NOTHING BUT RAPIST AND MURDERS PLAYING THE PRO SPORTS, DEALING DRUGS AND WEAPONS AND RAPIING WHITE GIRLS BECUASE THEY CAN.

NOW ADD BLACK MUSIC SINGERS TO THE LIST CHRIS BROWN BEATS THE HELL OF HIS GIRFRIEND AND SPENDS A 2 HOURS BEHIND BARS, THEN GETS SOME PROBATION CRAP.

Rihanna is a wimp, totally spineless "girl," not qualified to be called a woman.

I don't think she "gets it" yet. Brown is a total creep.

Neither deserve the public's adoration or money.

I told ya he wouldn't do any jail time people. Rihanna knew that Chris would take the plea because she didn't want to testify. She wasn't planning on testifing in the first place. The restraining order is not going to stick for the whole 5 years people because Rihanna doesn't want a restraining order. Get real people do you really think this is going to stay for the whole 5 years. That's a laugh! 180 hrs of community service like that is hard labor cleaning up graffiti (thats nothing but painting and picking up trash). What a laugh! Domestic Violence program is good but it is just like going to a AA program. Their goes another laugh! The judge acting like she gave a harsh punishment to Chris. Their are so many people in this world with a record weather it is a felony or misdeaminor charge. Thats not a big deal in life anymore because everyone has skeletons in their closets.

Anybody hot to date Rihanna better stand up and take notes. If he even Annoys her, he goes to prison. Maybe he should have just pleaded guilty and put all this behind him. Were it me, I'd move. Don't even take a chance. Interesting that Rihanna didn't even want such a restrictive protection order. Chris better be Real careful with this situation. Let her go. Let-her-go.
