Chris Brown

In Jail for the Long Haul

3/15/2014 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0314_chris_brown_tmzChris Brown will probably spend the next month behind bars, and possibly a lot longer.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris was arrested and jailed Friday after getting thrown out of the Malibu rehab facility where he's been living for nearly 4 months, per judge's order.  The judge in the Rihanna case ordered Chris to stay at the rehab joint until April 28, when his D.C. assault case goes to trial.  But Chris broke the rules, was booted, and Sheriff's deputies hauled him to jail.

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court Monday, trying to convince the judge to cut Brown a break and let him either go to another rehab facility or go on house arrest pending the D.C. trial.  That will be an uphill battle, given that this is the second rehab facility that booted Brown.

The D.C. trial is set for April 17.   Geragos has a pretty strong defense -- there are problems with the prosecution's case.  But if Chris is found guilty, he could end up in PRISON for breaking the law while on probation in the Rihanna case.

The stakes are high.  Brown has a lot to think about behind bars.

Let's hope Justin's Florida judge is as tough on Justin as this one is with Chris. Chris deserves the month in jail.

Bye bye Chris! Enjoy your new home, jail in solitary & think of drake w Riri....
Mark Geragos's clients are always found guilty & never get a break. Michael Jackson dumped him mid-trial to hire a better lawyer.

I will believe it when I actually see him serve his full sentence. Until then I'm skeptical. Tmz has burned me too many times with Blowhan and Bieber stories.

What problem with the prosecution's case? He knew he was on probation. He knew the terms of that probation. He knew what would happen if he chose to violate the terms of the probation. He chose to violate probation. Repeatedly. All the prosecution needs to do is hand over the facility's dismissal reports and his probation officer's reports. Case closed.
