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 just also lost any chance of winning the assault case as he admitted he is guilty. Granted the judge already found he was the aggressor so he really stood no chance of winning that case.

Maybe when all's said and done, Chris Brown won't be quite as ****y. He really is an arrogant ass.

Two days credit for every one day served? Say what?!! There's something seriously wrong with our judicial system. Chris Brown is a punk and deserves to get ALL his time, bi-polar or not

Ummmm. Going to jail for breaking the law is what non-celebrity types have to do so his bitching about having to be in prison falls on deaf ears here. Welcome to the real world. Hollywood doesn't seem to experience that very often.

Every fool with a halfway decent lawyer can get diagnosed with bi-polar disorder.

Chris Brown is sent to jail over a crime he committed 5 years ago but yet Justin Bieber, Lindsey Lohan and Amanda Bynes get to roam the streets after breaking laws consistently. Seems like in America if you are black the only options are jail time while being white means getting second, third, fourth and fifth chances
