TMZ is now reporting that Chris Brown worked out a plea bargain agreement that “punishes” him with probation — for the FELONY assault of Rihanna:
Chris Brown has copped a plea in his assault case. He won’t do jail time. He’s also been ordered to completely stay clear from Rihanna. He’ll spend 180 days doing hard labor in Virginia which is where Brown lives – it’s equivalent to Caltrans or graffiti cleanup. He gets 5 years probation for FELONY assault — he pled guilty. He’ll get supervised probation. He’ll have to come back to court every three months. He must enroll in a domestic violence counseling program. The judge said she wanted to make sure that Chris Brown “was treated as any other person who comes through this court.” If Brown violates probation, he could get up to 4 years in prison.
Um … this sounds like a whole lotta bullshizz to me. Totally unsurprising and yet still gravely disappointing. No jail time at all for assaulting Rihanna … a fact that he legally confesses to by taking this plea agreement. Celebrity justice, y’all.
