Chris Brown has accepted a plea deal in his Washington, D.C. assault case.
The 25-year-old singer had been charged with misdemeanor assault for punching Parker Adams in the face outside his tour bus last October, an assault that occurred while he was on probation for attacking Rihanna.
Brown pled guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to time served. He previously spent two days in a D.C. jail in this case.
During his court appearance on Tuesday, Brown issued an apology. “I would like to say to the court that I’m sorry,” he said.
Brown’s attorney, Danny Onorato, said that Brown had already been punished extensively for the assault including the 108 days he spent in an L.A. jail.
“To say that he’s been punished severely in this matter is an understatement,” Onorato said.
Brown’s career had been on hold for nearly a year and Onorato claims that he wanted to take responsibility for his actions so he could go back to work, including a new album and tour with Trey Songz.
Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was also convicted of misdemeanor assault in April in connection with the incident. He has not yet been sentenced.
Brown was greeted by throngs of fans and media as he exited the courthouse with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
