Faces & Names: R&B singer Brown gets more jail time

R&B singer Chris Brown admitted to violating his probation Friday and has been sentenced to 131 days in jail.

The Grammy-winning singer appeared before a judge in Los Angeles and admitted to violating his probation by assaulting a man in front of a hotel in Washington, D. C.

Brown was sentenced for violating his probation in the Rihanna case. Brown violently assaulted Rihanna in a car just hours before the 2009 Grammys.

Brown was also ordered to remain on probation until Jan. 23.

This isn’t the final legal hurdle for the R&B singer. Brown is still facing a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington, D.C.
