LOS ANGELES – A judge on Tuesday sentenced Chris Brown to five years' probation, six months' community labor for the beating of Rihanna and ordered the R&B singer to stay away from his former girlfriend for the next five years.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg told Brown that he could be sent to state prison if he violated any terms of his sentence, including an order to stay 100 yards away from Rihanna unless they're attending music industry events.

A probation report prepared for Tuesday's sentencing describes two previous violent incidents. The first happened about three months before the February beating while the couple was traveling in Europe; Rihanna slapped Brown during an argument, and he shoved her into a wall. In the second instance, Brown allegedly broke the front and passenger side windows on a Range Rover they were driving while visiting Barbados, Rihanna 's home country. Neither attack was reported, the probation report states.

Brown will serve his sentence in his home state — Virginia — and his community labor will be overseen by the police chief in Richmond.

The judge said she wanted to ensure that Brown, 20, performs physical labor instead of community service, such as mentoring young people. He will also undergo a year of domestic violence counseling.

Rihanna did not attend Tuesday's sentencing.

At one point, Brown, who was accompanied by his mother, agreed to the terms of the sentence before Schnegg had finished going through them all.

The hearing had been planned for Thursday afternoon, but Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, asked to move up the singer's sentencing to Tuesday. A previous attempt to sentence Brown was postponed when Schnegg said she hadn't received adequate assurances that Brown would perform physical labor if allowed to serve probation in Virginia.

The judge said she was satisfied with a letter presented by Geragos that Richmond Police Chief Bryan T. Norwood will directly oversee Brown's labor program.

After Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault in June, Schnegg ordered the pair to stay away from each other and to not contact one another. Her order Tuesday essentially extended that for the next five years.

Donald Etra, Rihanna's attorney, has said he didn't think the strict rules were necessary, but that he and Rihanna favored a less-stringent ruling that simply ordered Brown not to annoy, harass or molest the 21-year-old pop singer. He said after Tuesday's hearing that Rihanna did not object to the stay-away order, which allows the former couple to be within 10 yards of each other if they are attending music industry events.

Otherwise, Brown was ordered to remain 100 yards away from Rihanna.

Schnegg said she was aware of reports that Brown had been spotted on several occasions in the same places as Rihanna.

"I am not amused with the chatter that has been on the airwaves and any violation of your probation in this case comes with the potential for state prison," Schnegg told Brown.

Brown was arrested Feb. 8, hours after he was accused of beating Rihanna.

The attack occurred in Los Angeles' Hancock Park neighborhood as Brown drove a rented sports car. A Los Angeles police detective described a brutal attack in a search warrant affidavit filed in the case, stating Brown hit, choked and bit Rihanna and tried at one point to push her from the car.

Brown's career suffered after his arrest, with sponsors dropping him and radio stations refusing to play his music. Both he and Rihanna had to cancel several high-profile appearances, including planned performances at the Grammy Awards the day of the attack.

In a probation report released after the sentencing, Brown is quoted as saying he was "depressed" since the attack and that he "'does not want to carry on that cycle.'"

A felony charge of making criminal threats was dropped during Tuesday's sentencing.

I think its a good sentence considering that we all know there was no chance he was going to jail even though thats where he belongs. At least he has to stay away from Rihanna's dumbass so there's less of a chance of them "trying to make it work" and all that bullshit. :o

Celebrity justice? He doesn't deserve jail time, at all. How would a man who hit a woman (his first reported time) be best served by being placed in jail?

The answer to everything is always jail time. That's not the best way to rehabilitate in most cases. Something like the Counseling and public shame through community labor/work, in my opinion, can do more good for someone when it comes to a crime like this.

If he is a repeat offender, then yes, he is a danger to society and a danger to himself and should be placed in jail. This is his first time, though.

If you are going to put a man in jail for dogfighting, then you sure as hell better put a man in jail for hitting a woman.

Did you read the article? The last and most violent time was their third fight.

And you saw her face. He fucked her up. That wasnt just a smack, or a shove into a wall. That was a beatdown. If that would have been a regular Joe beating his wife like that, he would be in jail so fast. Community labor my ass, go to jail and fight someone your own size, not a woman.

Exactly! His ass belongs in jail. If Rihanna was a dog, I'm pretty sure Chris Brown would be sitting in jail right now.:mad::fiery:

The very sight of Chris Brown makes me sick. This is some joke of a sentence but at least he has to do some physical labor. He is not equipped to be a mentor to anyone. Little Punk.

Rhianna is kind of a dumbass too...the judge is aware enough that the restrictions are for her as well.

There was also two previous incidents of domestic violence before this incident even occurred! And he threatened to kill her while he was chocking her. He should have been given jail time!!!

i wish i were shocked that some people are saying that domestic violence is ok if it is a first offense... is rape or murder or theft ok as a first offense? of course not. violent crime is violent crime. first or fifth offense it is still wrong.

personally i think this is another example of "celebrity justice" he should have gotten jail time.

This is rediculous! He should have gotten jail time. A lot of people overlook what he did way too easily. Domestic violence is unacceptable doesnt matter if its the first offence or the fifth, his ass belongs in jail where he can pick on someone his own size and where he can be treated like the lil biatch he is. As far as I am concerned I will never listen to let alone buy any of his music. Chris Brown deserved jail time!!!

The person who did the most overlooking was Rihanna when her dumbass decided not to press charges against him. :o:help:
