Sentenced

8/25/2009 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

***** THE JUDGE JUST SAID SHE IS AWARE OF THE "CHATTER" ON THE AIRWAVES -- SHE IS CLEARLY REFERRING TO THE TALK THAT BROWN HAS BEEN IN TOUCH WITH RIHANNA. SHE SAYS SHE MEANS BUSINESS AND WILL VIOLATE HIS PROBATION IF HE DARES VIOLATE THE TERMS.

UPDATE, TERMS OF SENTENCE.
The judge placed Brown on felony probation for 60 months -- 5 years. He must obey all laws. He must report to probation within 72 hours. Brown can perform community labor in Virginia. She wants reports from the domestic violence program in Richmond, VA. Brown must keep in touch with the Probation Department. He is subject to search and seizure 24/7 for the next 5 years. He can't own any dangerous weapon, including guns or knives.

The judge will issue a protective order ... staying away from Rihanna. He must provide DNA samples as requested by authorities.

He must complete a 52 week domestic violence program sponsored by the Commonwealth Catholic Charities.

Brown must personally come to court every 3 months during his probation. The first appearance will be November 19.

Brown must perform 180 days of community labor. He must also pay $2,500 in restitution. He'll have to pay 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.

UPDATE:
The judge just said she wanted to reiterate that she wanted him to do hard time ... like washing cars, grafitti removal, etc.

UPDATE:
Mark Geragos just said the name of the community service program in which Brown will be enrolling. It's Commonwealth Catholic Charities, where Brown will be enrolling in a 52 week domestic violence program.

I choose to believe he has learned his lesson. If this should happen again he knows this is nothing compared to what he would get next time.

If Michael Vick had to go to prison for abusing dogs, Brown should also go to prison for abusing a human being -- not probation.
