Chris Brown Ordered to 131 More Days in Jail

(via TMZ)

Chris-BrownChris Brown has just been sentenced to spend another 4-plus months in jail … for violating his probation in the Rihanna case … but the reality is, he could be released by week’s end.

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.

Chris is not out of the legal woods … his D.C. assault trial is set to start in the following months.

Authorities say singer Robert Wilson — known as Bobby V.  parked a red 2013 Bentley outside the Hot Beats Recording Studio Tuesday night when police say he was approached by two armed robbers. Police say Wilson complied with the men and they drove away in the car. The Bentley was later found abandoned at a commuter train station.

Police said Thursday that Robert Unrico McFarland was being held on the robbery and vehicle hijacking charges and charges of aggravated assault and having a firearm during the crime. Fulton County Jail records do not list an attorney for McFarland.

Police said they’re still searching for a second suspect.

Dang Bobby  we didn’t know  you had Bentley paper, your last album couldn’t have even bought you a Yugo. Well at least you didn’t get hurt .Good luck on your next project.
