Chris Brown Sentenced to Probation, Community Labor

Chris Brown

Chris Brown’s fate has finally been decided. The pop star was sentenced in his assault case against Rihanna on Tuesday.

Brown was sentenced two days early in a Los Angeles courtroom, stemming from felony charges that he assaulted his former girlfriend in February.

The judge placed Brown on felony probation for five years with six months of community labor. He must report to probation within 72 hours.

The “Forever” singer, who appeared in court wearing a dark three-piece pinstriped suit, will perform community labor at the Commonwealth Catholic Charities and enroll in a 52-week domestic violence course in Richmond, Va. He is subject to search and seizure at any time over the next five years and cannot own any dangerous weapons. He also may not travel outside of the country without prior court approval.

“I am not immune to the chatter on the airwaves,” Judge Patricia Schnegg told Brown in reference to reports that he and Rihanna have been in contact.

The 20-year-old must stay 100 yards away from Rihanna except when attending industry events where the distance is reduced to 10 yards. The stay-away order is in effect for five years. If he violates the probation, the judge will consider sending him to prison.

He is due back in court November 19 for a progress report.

    Man, Chris really f*cked up his life!
    No matter how much a woman or any other person prevokes you, don’t give in.
    It’s not worth it. It’s just not worthed!

    I hate when people fail at protecting themself, because it’s really easy to do. Rather than all the consequences you have to deal with when you don’t protect yourself.

    I wish him all the best of luck with closing this chapter of his life.

    Glad hes in the dv classes because he really does need them. I doubt they will help tho. It seems like he doesnt want to change his ways unless its to save face or save his career and image. He thinks hes above the law. But maybe the classes will help him realize his issues.
    Having a P.O. might actually help him slow down on the drinking too.
    Maybe now we can get a break from him also.

    That’s nothing, he should have received a harsher punishment. He’s disgusting, he should just go away.

  13. !LOL!

    @ Skysy, I believe 5 years is perfect. He should have gone to jail for what he did but instead he gets probation. I believe the sentencing was sufficient because he is a celebrity and so this is actually going easy on him. Just thank the lord he aint gon let men, who haven’t seen a woman in years, do him way he did Rihanna. Now we can truly forget him because justice has more than been served, now we can forget about him.

    That’s a fair sentence, it could have been worse. I’m glad that the judge said what she said about the protective order, for obvious reasons. I wish him well.

  17. U HEARD IT FROM THE BEST

    Rihanna’s ass need to be made an example of too. Chris stay away from this talentless alien. She is not even a citizen of the US. Why fuk up your life and career over that piece of filt. If you want to date a non american girl; go for a London chick. They much better
