Chris Brown

Ordered to 131 More Days in Jail

Chris Brown
has just been sentenced to spend another 4-plus months in jail ... for violating his probation in the Rihanna case ... but the reality is, he could be released by week's end.

Brown was in court Friday afternoon ... where he admitted he violated his probation by getting into a fight with a dude in Washington D.C.

That's all the judge needed to hear.  He sentenced Chris to 1 year in jail.  HOWEVER, Chris got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars.  That leaves 131 days in the pokey.

But we're told the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept has been releasing inmates sentenced to 1 year after 240 days.  And here's the thing.  Chris gets credit for 2 days for every 1 he served behind bars, so when you add it up, he has credit for 234 days -- 6 days shy.  So he could be released in days.

The judge could have gone a lot harder -- 4 years in prison.  But Chris got a break because the judge took into account he was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which could account for some of the violence. 

The judge also ordered Chris to attend therapy sessions with a shrink 2 times a week.   And he must submit to random drug testing 3 times a week.

Chris is not out of the legal woods ... his D.C. assault trial is set to start in the following months.

I guess in America it really matters with the court system if you are white with money or black with money.

It's too bad the judge wouldn't let Chris Brown continue on with his medical marijuana! I know first hand that it helps a person who is inflicted with Bipolar Disorder. I think he'll feel better if and when he gets a mood stabilizer, like Lithium.

No prisoner should get credit for days served. Do the whole sentence. Chris Brown a punk.

Good to see a judge hand down a sentence that's on par with the offense. A year is fair and Chris deserves time served like every other inmate who qualifies .. These judges haven't been messing with hjm and it's refreshing to see - finally

Just because he has was just diagnosed with bipolar disease don't justify his actions . Us regular people would not be release so soon like Chris brown even if we were diagnosed with bipolar disorder so keep in longer in jail .
