Chris Brown pleaded guilty today to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to time served. He only spent two days in a D.C. jail.
The assault occurred back in October, when Chris allegedly hit a man after he tried to get in a picture Chris was taking with two women. The singer was soon arrested, though he previously pleaded not guilty in the case.
Chris’ attorney, Danny Onorato, fought hard for Chris, saying that he had already been punished enough, reminding the court of the time the singer already spent in Jail and four months he spent receiving inpatient counseling. “To say that he’s been punished severely in this matter is an understatement,” Onorato said. Chris’ career has been on hold for almost a year, and he wanted to get back to work, putting this case behind him.
After his hearing, Chris only said: “I would like to say to the court that I’m sorry.”
I REALLY hope that Chris gets his act together. I’d rather hear about his music and career, versus dumb mistakes he makes off of anger.
