Yesterday, Chris Brown admitted he violated probation after getting into an altercation with a man in Washington D.C. The judge sentenced the R&B singer to additional time in jail…but he might get out sooner rather than later. Get the deets…
Chris Brown (who has been behind bars since mid-March) went before a L.A. court judge yesterday, where he admitted violating his probation by getting arrested in Washington D.C.
You’ll recall the singer’s D.C. triAl was delayed after his bodyguard was found guilty and wanted to appeal his own conviction. Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, hopes that by Breezy making the admission that he will get a ‘get out of jail sooner’ card and can once and for all settle the case.
Breezy (pictured above in court) was sentenced by Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin to an additional 131 days in jail, although his sentence could be shortened on the account of good behavior. The judge originally sentenced the “Loyal” singer to a full year, but he was given a credit for serving 234 days (the time he spent in rehab and jail), leaving 131 days left to serve.
Breezy’s attorney told CNN he expects Chris to get out of jail by Monday saying,
“I would expect that Chris should be out of jail before the weekend’s up or before Monday,” Geragos said after the hearing. “If he isn’t out by Monday, then I would expect he’s getting special treatment. He’s got over 230 days credit on a 365 (day sentence) and generally the sheriff is releasing on a lot less than that.”
No sign of his on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche during his court hearing, but his mom and other family & friends were there for support.
Once Chris is a free man, he is expected to complete community labor at least three days a week until he reaches a total of 700 hours.
Unfortunately, Breezy had to celebrate his 25th birthday behind bars on May 5th, but Karrueche didn’t let his day go by without showing a little love. She posted the older picture above with the caption, “Happy Birthday Christopher I love and miss you.. Can’t wait to give you a big kiss and hug.”
Sure she’s happy to hear he’s coming home soon…
