Chris Brown Released from Jail on Monday
Chris Brown was placed in jail back in March, and as of 12:01 a.m. on Monday, he has been released, according to the sheriff’s department to CNN.
Brown ended up in the Los Angeles County Jail after being kicked out of a court-ordered rehabilitation facility for breaking the rules. This incident, as well, violated the probationary terms for his 2009 assault of Rihanna.
Along with this incident, Brown further violated the terms of his probation for a 2013 assault, in which he allegedly hit a man who photobombed a picture with two female fans.
While he had been sentenced to 365 days in jail, only 234 were served, with rehabilitation counting toward the total. Brown’s probation has been extended to January 23, 2015, and he is expected back in court on August 13 for a progress report.
As well, according to a report from E!, the new probation conditions involve random drug testing three times per week, psychiatric counseling, outpatient therapy, and 1,000 hours of community service, which were revoked after a car accident last year.
Brown, upon leaving prison, tweeted that he plans to keep on working on his music: "Humbled and Blessed...Back to the Music and the Fans...Thank you GOD."
Brown’s album X, considered his last, had been scheduled for last year, but a new release date still has not been revealed. Singles have included “Fine China,” “Love More,” “Loyal,” and “Don’t Think They Know.”
