Chris Brown Sentenced to Five Years' Probation; Judge Issues Warning on Rihanna "Chatter"

by at . Comments

Chris Brown was formally sentenced in Los Angeles today after accepting a plea deal to felony assault for beating the crap out of Rihanna in February.

His lawyer, Mark Geragos, named the community service program in Virginia in which Brown will be enrolling in a 52-week domestic violence program.

Brown was sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor. Here are the terms of Chris' probation, as stipulated by the judge:

  • He is subject to search and seizure 24/7 for the next 60 months years. He can't own any dangerous weapon, including guns or knives. He must surrender any firearms in his possession within 24 hours.
  • Brown must personally come to court every three months during probation. The first appearance will be November 19.
  • Chris must report by phone every 72 hours as requested.
  • He must provide DNA samples as requested by authorities.
  • Chris must perform 180 days of community labor.
  • He must get approval before leaving the U.S.
  • Brown is ordered not to "harass, assault, threaten or molest" Rihanna. He can't have any contact, even on the phone or through a third person.

Chris Brown will not do time, but his probation terms are no joke.

Regarding the last item, Judge Patricia Schnegg said during the sentencing, "I am not immune to the chatter on the airwaves" - almost certainly a reference to reports that Brown and Rihanna are still talking or have even hooked up.

The judge says she means business and will consider it a probation violation and enforce the appropriate consequences if he does not abide by that order.

Do you think Chris Brown's sentence is fair?
