Chris Brown Admits Probation Violation, Given Longer Jail Time
Yesterday May 9, Chris Brown admitted in court to a probation violation and was sentenced to 365 days of jail time.
Though the sentence was set for a year the Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin gave Brown credit for serving 234 days because of the rehab and jail time, leaving 131 days left to serve.
Though the situation appears serious, Brown’s attorney was optimistic and said he expected Brown’s release in a few days.
“I would expect that Chris should be out of jail before the weekend’s up or before Monday,” Mark 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.” Friday’s admission in Los Angeles that he violated his probation by committing a crime in Washington should lead to a quick resolution of the District of Columbia assault case, Geragos said.
