Chris Brown Cops A Plea!

By: tracimac / June 22, 2009

Looks as though Chris Brown wanted to make his assault trial as painless as possible, at least for him.

Brown copped a plea at today’s preliminary hearing in his assault case against ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

His punishment?

TMZ  is reporting that he has 180 days probation in Virginia and 5 years probation for pleading guilty to federal assault. He must also enroll in a domestic violence counseling program and must stay AWAY from RiRi. If Brown violates probation, he could go to jail for 4 years.

The judge said she wanted to make sure that Brown “was treated as any other person who comes through this court.”

So, as a wrap up, Chris Brown won’t be spending any time in jail for beating up his girlfriend. Funny how things work.
