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.

How in the hell does TMZ know how long he will be in jail but can't say exactly what he did to violate his probation.

It's because he was having threesomes with other patients and staff members. I guess he was really horny without his marijuana.

I though he was there on his own and that he finish the time he was mandated to do by the court. What are the charges? What law did he break while he was in there?

Good, he deserves to be in jail for a very long time. Only way it could be better is if the other inmates take him out for what he's done so lets see how big of a tough guy he really is without all his body guards around to protect him.

A month is not a long haul for someone like him. He needs a year or two. He's a violent offender and is getting treated extremely leniently. It's ridiculous.
