Chris Brown sentenced to another 4 months in jail… but will he serve it?

Chris Brown has been sitting in a jail cell for the past couple of months, and I love it. I was really hoping he was going to stay there once a judge heard his latest assault case – which, by the way, is yet another violation of his 2009 probation from when he beat the shit out of Rihanna – but alas, that’s not the case, most likely. Chris saw a judge for the probation violation this week, and while he was sentenced to a further four months behind bars, loopholes mean he might be out by the end of the week.

From TMZ:

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.

But we’re told the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept has been releasing inmates sentenced to 1 year after 240 days.  And here’s the thing.  Chris gets credit for 2 days for every 1 he served behind bars, so when you add it up, he has credit for 234 days — 6 days shy.  So he could be released in days.

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.

Ugh, so ridiculous. HOW MANY TIMES has he been ordered to see a therapist, do community service, go to anger management, etc? Sorry, but no amount of counseling is going to turn this piece of shit into a decent human being, and I feel pretty confident saying that.

The one hope is that his DC assault case is yet to be heard – that’ll happen early next month, so he could end up right back where he started.
