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.

Bi-polar disorder, if he even has this, does not 'account' for some of the violence. Bi-polar does not make someone violent or beat up thier girlfriend, that comment is almost offensive!

Damn I thought they'd let him off his probation after jail time. They are screwing this dude. No way he completes probation. It's gonna be a revolving door for him. If I were him, I'd just take the jail time and revoke the probation. He's already there, may as well get it over with. I was a public defender in Lansing Michigan for 7 years, and I can tell you, he is not be treated like a celeb. Far from it. He should be done with the riana case when he gets out in 8 days. Give him a chance to see if he learned. That's what they always did with people doing time forbte first time. There may be racism afoot here with that judge

There is no blood test or brain scan to diagnose bipolar disorder. People just describe extreme mood swings or episodic rage and its "bipolar disorder." Real bipolar disorder is serious and disrupts the ability to manage activities of daily living without medication. It is not just some punk who can't control his temper. I call BS on Chris and it is insulting to real patients who suffer from the disease.

If you're going to get arrested LA is the place to do it. They give you a slap on the wrist every time. Especially if you're a celebrity.
