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.

Although I would have preferred jailtime, he did get 5 years probation, he's bound to mess up during that time and if he violates his parole in any way it's straight to jail for him!

SIENNA IS A HOMEWRECKING WHORE    

we all KNEW this weak ass bitch would take a plea. TO ME THIS MEANS HE IS GUILTY AS CHARGED, if he was not guilty and didn't have anything to hide he would let it go to trial. so now EVERYONE knows he's a woman beater...and he'll have a FELONY on his record...for life, and he can't go near Princess RiRi :-) that makes me very happy!!!

Sharlene You are joking right?? She stood up for women by walking away? Are you freakin serious?? If she had signed a complaint against the woman beater, now that would be sticking up for women. You need to get a dose of reality.

We luv Chris: She didn't hit him, she just grabbed the phone out of his hand. Even if she hit him, it was after he hit her. Stop sticking up for a lame ass abuser. Maybe you should get beaten? Yeah, I think so.

Ashley: It's not over...

Michael: It's WOMAN, not women. Women is more than one female. Women aren't stupid, just pathetic 'men' like you.

Anyway, it's BS that he's not getting any jail time, but next time we hear from him in a case like this, it will be from killing a woman.

Virginia and California have whats called "sister state law agreement" which means Chris Browns court order will be upheld in the state of Virginia as if he was still in California. Make sense. Mostly all the states have this. It cuts out the juristiction crap.
