Chris Brown Pleads Guilty to Assault View Count: 118

Summary: Chris Brown pleaded guilty in a deal with the prosecutor to assaulting a man in Washington last year.

Singer Chris Brown, poster child for anger management issues, pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to assaulting a man outside a Washington hotel. The incident took place last October, when the man attempted to get his picture taken with the 25-year-old Grammy winner; Chris Brown grew irate with the man, and so punched him square in the nose, after which Brown’s body guard also assaulted the man.

All this happened while Brown was still on probation for attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna, the first dramatic incident that tarnished Brown’s reputation and characterized him publicly as a violent man.

Brown faced two days in a District of Columbia court, and then spent three months in a California jail earlier this year for violating the terms of his probation from the 2009 assault of Rihanna.

Brown’s attorney Danny Onorato argued that Brown didn’t deserve further time in jail, considering the two days he spent in the D.C. jail and the three months in a California jail, as well as his four months in anger management rehabilitation.

“To say he has been punished severely is an understatement,” claimed Onorato.

While Brown’s probation for the Rihanna case has been extended to early 2015, and as he has 500 hours of community service left for his California sentence, Brown has not escaped the legal consequences of his previous actions.

Though Judge A. Franklin Burgess Jr. did not order further jail time, he said that “Clearly there should be some jail time. I feel he has suffered the consequences of what he has done here.”

The prosecutors deal in the D.C. court got Brown off the hook for jail time, but as for his future, Onorato claims his client his “learned” from his actions and wants to focus on his music.

Brown had previously pleaded not guilty to assaulting Parker Adams, 25. In response to the case, Brown told his judge, “I would like to say to the court, I’m sorry.”
