Probation Violation Puts Chris Brown Behind Bars

Chris Brown is behind bars…again. The R&B singer was dismissed from his Malibu Rehab Facility mid March for “for failure to comply with rules and regulations of the program.” Browns request to enter another rehab program was swiftly denied by the Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge. Instead, he will be remaining in Jail until his formal violation hearing on April 23.

In 2009 Brown was sentenced to 5 years probation, community labor and violence counseling after pleading guilty to charges of felony assault. Over the last year Brown’s probation has been revoked two times, and in the past 5 months the singer has been dismissed from two rehab programs.

In November 2013, Brown was sentenced to a 90-day treatment program for allegedly breaking the nose of a man while in Washington D.C. Brown was abruptly dismissed from the program after tossing a rock through his mothers car window. As punishment, a judge allowed Brown to evade jail by entering into an anger management and drug rehab facility. Brown’s latest escapade seems to have been the final straw.

Before his formal violation hearing on April 23, Brown must complete the trial for his November assault charges. The judge’s decision on the 23rd will be greatly impacted by this trial’s outcome. If convicted of assault, Brown will likely finish his probation sentence in jail.

In Michigan, simple assault and battery is a misdemeanor that is punishable by up to 93 days in jail and fines up to $500. However, felony assault is punishable by up to four years in prison and incurs very heavy fines.
