Chris Brown Sentenced To Probation, Hard Labor & More
It is the end to a six month long ordeal, the beginning of a five year long retribution process and a lifetime of regret.
On Tuesday, Chris Brown was sentenced to serve five years probation and 180 days of hard labor for assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna.
More details emerged yesterday afternoon from the savage attack back in February. According to the police report filed, Brown unleashed 2 separate attacks.
The first is when he became enraged and tried to force Rihanna out of the car. When he could not get her out of the car, he punched her in the left eye with his right hand, and then continued to drive while punching her.
The second came after Rihanna faked a phone conversation with her assistant. The report stated that Brown unleashed a second wave of punches, placed her in a headlock then bit her left ear.
Yesterday’s ruling also requires Brown to complete domestic violence counseling and appear in court, every three months for a progress report.
LA Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg also put a restraining order in place, requiring Brown to stay 100 yards away from Rihanna but modified the space to 10 yards if the two are at the same industry event.
Judge Schnegg also informed Brown that she was not amused by reports in the media saying, “I am not amused with the chatter that has been on the airwaves and any violation of your probation in this case comes with the potential for state prison.” The two will have to observe the judges decision until 2014.
The report also claims that February’s altercation was not the first for the couple. The first incident allegedly occurred in Europe last year, when Brown and Rihanna were in a “verbal dispute.”
She slapped him, and Brown responded by shoving her into a wall. But that’s not all. Three weeks before the incident in February, the two got into an argument while driving in Rihanna’s homeland of Barbados.
The report claims that Brown got out and broke both the driver’s and front passenger-side windows. Fortunately, no one was injured, and the incident was not reported to authorities.
When asked how Rihanna is doing, her lawyer Donald Etra said she is grateful for the support of her friends, family and fans.
