Taking to the Los Angeles Criminal Courts building, Chris Brown arrived for formal sentencing in regards to his assault on ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, alongside his lawyer and bodyguards on Tuesday afternoon (August 25).
Scolding Brown for his misdoings, the judge also is making him enroll in a community service program, Commonwealth Catholic Charities, for a 52 week domestic violence program.
With fines and fees totaling just over $5,000, the R&B singer will have a protective order forcing him to stay away from Rihanna for 5 years(until 2014) — not even on the phone or through a third person. He must stay 100 yards away from her, unless there’s an entertainment-related event, in which he must stay 10 yards away.
On a final note, TMZ reports tell that “the judge just said she is aware of the ‘chatter’ on the airwaves (talking about rumors that Brown has been in touch with Rihanna) – adding that she means business and will violate his probation if he dares violate the terms.”
