Brown was in court Friday afternoon … where he admitted he violated his probation by getting into a fight with a dude in Washington D.C.
That’s all the judge needed to hear. He sentenced Chris to 1 year in jail. HOWEVER, Chris got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars. That leaves 131 days in the pokey.
It’s possible Chris will get out a lot earlier because of jail overcrowding.
The judge could have gone a lot harder — 4 years in prison. But Chris got a break because the judge took into account he was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which could account for some of the violence.
The judge also ordered Chris to attend therapy sessions with a shrink 2 times a week. And he must submit to random drug testing 3 times a week.
Chris is not out of the legal woods … his D.C. assault trial is set to start in the following months.
