Chris Brown Pleads Guilty, Won't Do Jail Time
A plea deal has been reached in the Chris Brown/Rihanna beatdown case.
The announcement was made moments before a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles was set to begin.
Chris has plead guilty to felony assault and his attorney, Mark Geragos says the deal includes five years of supervised probation and six months of community labor.
The judge expressed some concerns because Chris is not a California resident, but it appears Chris will be allowed to do his community service in his home state of Virginia.
Upon completion of the labor, he'll enter a 52-week domestic violence counseling program.
He was also ordered to stay 50 yards away from Rihanna in public and 10 yards away from her at events where they are obligated to attend, like at an awards show. Rihanna's lawyer requested that the pair be allowed in the same place at the same time, which further proves our point that these are STILL getting it in. This "stay away" order will be effect for five years.
If he violates the term of his probation, he could get up to four years in prison.
