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.

Why cop a plea if you're "not a monster" and you didn't do anything wrong?

I'm betting he was trying to save his crappy career and stay out of jail cause the evidence would've landed him there.

Somebody should show him how it feels to be pounded into a pulp!

Any other "non celebrity" man beats a chicks ass that bad in California would sit for a minimum 6 years. Even if the chick doesn't testify, the police report and pictures will be enough. What a complete crock of sh*t!!

@Karen,,,That fits??? How does that fit??? He beat a woman, end of. 180 days in a labour camp doesn't fit. Nice message they're sending to all the people who are victims of abuse. If you have a CD coming out, no worries, you're alright. I feel sick to my stomach.
