Chris Brown’s Jail Time Likely to Happen after Judge Revoked His Probation

Following a series of investigation regarding the hit-and-run car accident where singer Chris Brown allegedly gave the wrong insurance information and even called the involved female driver a “b*tch”, a judge revoked the singer’s probation.

Brown’s Probation

It could be remembered that Brown was sentenced to serve five-year probation in connection with his conviction in the beating of his former girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009. He was also required to complete more than 1,400 hours in labor-oriented service, which he failed to do so. Thus, he faced a probation violation trial just recently.

What would happen after the revocation?

Now that his probation has been revoked by the Superior Court Judge James Brandlin during a court hearing last Monday, Brown could likely be sentenced to four years in prison if his probation is not reinstated. So far, he remains free as the judge declined to jail him.

How it all started?

Last May 12, Brown hit the headlines after he rear-ended a female driving a Mercedes Benz. Although he stopped after the accident, he failed to provide his correct insurance details and driver’s license to the other driver. He even called her a “b*tch” during their conversation before he drove away.

Brown’s defense

Amidst his probation troubles, Brown took his Twitter account to voice out his protest. In a series of tweets, he said:

"I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info"

"There were no injuries or damages. C'mon!!"

"My cross is heavy but God gives me the strength to carry it"

On July 23, he is scheduled to appear in court for a hearing on the hit-and-run case.

Meanwhile, a Los Angeles accident attorney recounted several reported incidences wherein the R&B singer almost ruined his probation. Last January, the singer was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for allegedly assaulting the R&B singer Frank Ocean. He was also involved in a brawl with the rapper Drake and allegedly threw a chair through a window after an interview with “Good Morning America,” wherein he was asked about beating Rihanna. Right from the moment his probation was launched, he is expected to obey all laws and to keep off from anything that he think would trigger his sentence, the lawyer said.
