Chris Brown Sentenced


Hip hopper Chris Brown, who pleaded guilty to assaulting former girlfriend and fellow superstar Rihanna, received his sentencing today in L.A. In addition to five years probation and a nearly $3000 fine, Brown must complete 180 hours of community labor and take part in a domestic violence counseling program.

Brown created a huge controversy in February when photos of a bruised and battered Rihanna surfaced on the Internet, and allegations that he caused those bruises were eventually found to be true.

Since the incident, Brown has experienced some serious backlash. Many radio stations refused to play his hit songs and Brown lost a lucrative endorsement deal he had with Double Mint Gum.
