The verdict is in – Chris Brown dodges jail time and will instead remain in rehab for a couple more weeks.
The singer already narrowly missed jail time when he began his latest court-ordered rehab stint in November 2013. The judge ordered rehab for anger issues and drug abuse, and lately it seems that Brown has become more known for his violent outbursts than his music.
The Los Angeles District Attorney office pushed for jail time due to an assault arrest in Washington which violated his probation. However, on Monday February 3, the judge concurred with defense attorney Mark Geragos that Brown “is doing well in the program and making great strides.”
Brown is expected to complete this rehab program on February 19. His assault charge hearing in Washington is set for February 20, with the threat of jail time looming yet again if found guilty.
