Chris Brown Sentenced To Summer Behind Bars

R&B star Chris Brown has been sentenced to spend the entire summer behind bars.

In court in Los Angeles on Friday (09May14), the singer admitted to violating his probation, served up during his 2009 assault trial, by getting into a fight outside a Washington D.C. hotel in October (13), and he was sentenced to a year in jail.

However, Brown got credit for the 116 days he spent in rehab, seeking court-ordered treatment for anger management, and another 59 days he has been behind bars this year, which leaves a total of 131 days, according to Tmz.com.

The R&B star was facing a four-year sentence, but the judge in the case agreed to take into account that the Kiss Kiss singer was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which could account for some of the violence.

The judge also ordered him to attend therapy sessions twice a week, and he must submit to random drug testing three times a week.

Brown, who spent his birthday behind bars earlier this week (05May14), also has an assault trial in Washington, D.C. looming next month (Jun14). His bodyguard Christopher Hollosy has already been found guilty of attacking 20-year-old Parker Adams, who accused the minder and Brown of beating him up and breaking his nose in an unprovoked altercation in October (13).

Brown has been behind bars since March (14) after a judge sentenced him to jail time after he was dismissed from a rehab facility for breaking the clinic's rules.
