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.

Four months and that bad-attitude having, slvt will finally be behind you FOREVER. Drake dumped her for you, bruh. Pretended that he wanted her back, after she begged him to take her back, just to dump her. Just like you did Chris, when she begged for you to take her back.

Chris is young black talent and the system is trying to break him. Hopefully he will rise above it and stop giving them the ammunition.

It's a shame that COMMON folks go through hell just to get out of trouble, but these knuckleheads get a huge break for very violent offenses.

I would like to know what exactly did Chris do so bad to deserve such grilling. Chris is a humble guy.

I am by far a cb fan but his violation with rhianna shouldn't be put all on him...she allowed it she was the idiot who took him back so where is at least some of the partial blame on her end...just saying
