Chris Brown was sentenced to 60-months felony probation and ordered by a judge to attend a 52-week domestic violence program, perform 56-weeks of community service and he must perform manual labor in his home state of Virginia. He was also fined $2,500 by the judge.
Brown was also ordered not to have any contact or phone calls with Rihanna for the next five years and to stay away at least 100-yards away from her unless at an entertainment event, then he must stay at least 10 feet away.
During sentencing, Judge Patricia Schnegg warned Brown, “I am not immune to the chatter on the airwaves.” Meaning she has heard reports that Brown and Rihanna were communicating and she warned Brown that he will be violating his probation and could go to jail if he keeps it up.
Brown was also ordered to appear in court every three months over the next year for progress reports with the judge.
The singer, looking serious and wearing a pinstripe suit was accompanied by his mother, two other family members and attorney Mark Geragos to court.
Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in June. He was arrested after the pair fought hours before February’s Grammys.
Brown, 20, pled guilty to Felony assault last month
