Judge to Brown -- I've Heard the 'Chatter'

8/25/2009 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown was just sentenced to 5 years probation and 6 months hard labor, and the judge threatened Brown by talking about the "chatter" she hears.

Chris Brown: Click to watch
Judge Patricia Schnegg said during the sentencing, "I am not immune to the chatter on the airwaves." It's unclear if she was saying that she's heard reports that Brown and Rihanna are still talking ... or if she was just saying he needs to be careful because she watches TV and reads TMZ. To us, it sounded like the former.

Down to business, the judge sentenced Brown to perform hard labor at the Commonwealth Catholic Charities in Richmond, VA, where he must also take a 52-week domestic violence course.

The judge ruled Brown -- who pleaded guilty to felony assault -- must stay 100 yards away from Rihanna, unless they are both at an entertainment-related event, in which case he must stay 10 yards away. The protective order lasts 5 years.

He must provide DNA samples as requested by authorities.

Brown must also keep in touch with the Probation Department and is subject to search and seizure 24/7 for the next 5 years. He can't own any dangerous weapons, including guns or knives.

Chris Brown: Click to watchBrown must pay $2,500 in restitution and another $2,500 in probation expenses. He must also pay a $30 criminal conviction fee -- BARGAIN! He must also pay $400 that goes into a domestic violence fund.

Brown must get prior approval before leaving the country.

As Brown left court, female fans could be heard screaming "I love you."

So Chris choking Rihanna until she was unconscious, leaving her for dead on the side of an empty road, taking off in his car with all his bodyguards behind him, her waking up dazed and beaten, then having to beg for help is HER FAULT???

I sure hope that God will help you clear that dead mind of yours.

Do you think there is any evidence of MJ's goons keeping him high to drain his bank. He always has like 20 people with him.

Question about Mj
Why if micheal was in such bad shape did AEG still push this 50 concrts in stead of postponing them? and if he was in such shape as everyone is claming how did he pass the physical with no problems and noithing showed up in any test that were done?

Harvey is NEVER on time. Sometimes they don't do it at all. Don't waste your time waiting around for it. If they say 3pm they should do it at 3pm or post a notice rescheduling it. When you check it and it has already started, they have already covered the most important items (first). It is very annoying.

Neither was it his fault he choked her until she was unconscious and left Rihanna for dead, either.

WAKE UP, Chris Brown is a CONVICTED FELON and he is GUILTY.

Pray For the Beaten Up!    

does he have to attend sexually obsessed classes too and how come he got more time than that "Canadian". I don't think Chris will do anything remotely similiar to that heinous act, so isn't it a bit much? Is the judge making an example out of him since his sentencing is riding the tails of went down with Jasmine and her lover?

As the MJ reports cycle every day, the same things get repeated but some things seem to slip through the cracks. IF MJ was getting an IV repeatedly inserted into him each day, there would be very clear scars to support this. Not simple needle marks, but very explicit IV marks.

Further, what has become of hte lease on the house. I assume the lease was not month-to-monht, so does that mean the owner is now another creditor in court?

Lastly, is it known if Michael ever sought out any real medical advice about sleep. For example, sleep studies, etc. There are established methods for dealing with sleep issues that include sleep studdies, EEG evaluaions, etc. Is there any evidence that MJ looked into any legitimate clinical solutions? If not, that would suggest that all of the physicians trying to solve his sleep issues were negligent since none managed to guide him through the normal methods to diagnose sleep problems.

One last point. MJ seemed to have a lot of followers in the middle east. He lived over there for a few years after the molestation incident. No one has heard a peep from them since MJ's death. Seems odd...

Thanks,

K
