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.

He should be sent to the joint. The guy is a Patza, and he needs a dose of reality. I feel no pity fo a man that is abusive to women, a horrible role model and has bad manners - the Music Awrd episode when he barged in on a female star who had just won an award, embarrassed her, all other Afro American musicians and his family. What kind of stinkin childish behavior could be rewarded with any kind respect??? Hey Chris. . . GROW UP. uccess has ruined you. Youa rotton piece of fruit. People have worked hard and adhered to the basic respect that is owed to one another. Thnem he puts on the POOR Me face in court. Send him to Ironwood State Prison - Leevel 4 too get a taste of the homies daily life; and act like you do in teh street. You would not last.

The guy has A.D.D. His history is proof. If it isn't ADD's then he is a drug & alcohol, heavy user. Soon, something permanent will happen to him!

Bi-polar my butt. Knowing the math, that the punk-thug could and probably would be released in 6 more days after revealing he violated his parole, the moronic judge should have gone harder against this oiece of garbage. He belongs in a cage. He's an animal, and the example should have been made long ago.
