Chris Brown Court Appearance

Despite having a hit single that is growing more inescapable by the day with “Loyal”, Chris Brown may never experience promoting the track at its highest of highs. The Virginia singer admitted to violating his probation in a Los Angeles court on Friday afternoon, telling the judge that he indeed was involved in an altercation with a man in Washington D.C. last year that left the man bloodied after he attempted to photobomb a photo between Brown and a fan.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin was left no other choice and sentenced the 25-year old singer to a year in jail. The sentenced was commuted to 131 days as Brown was given credit for time served.

Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos is already looking forward to his client being released, however, sometime within the next week. “I would expect that Chris should be out of jail before the weekend’s up or before Monday,” Geragos said. “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.”

The singer still must complete over 700 hours of community service over a rate of three days per week to complete probation which runs until January 2015.
