Bobby Brown was sentenced to 55 days in jail following his October DUI. The singer will be spending nearly two months behind bars in a Los Angeles area jail. On Feb. 27, Us Weekly confirmed Brown's sentence and reported that he will also be on probation for one year after he is released from jail -- and there's more.
"In addition to his jail time and probation, Brown has been ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program -- and to attend thrice weekly AA meetings before checking into jail by March 20, according to TMZ," Us Weekly reported. Many people think that his sentencing is fair.
Bobby Brown was sentenced after he plead "no contest" to the charges, according to his attorney. This was Brown's third DUI arrest (he was charged in 1996 and earlier in 2012) and it seems that his poor choices have now caught up to him. As with most celebrity DUI cases, people cannot understand why the rich just don't call a cab or limo when they have been drinking.
If Brown doesn't knock off his drinking and driving hobby, he could end up hurting himself and/or other people. Perhaps his 18-month program and the required AA meetings will teach him that it's okay to drink, but not to get behind the vehicle of a car afterward.
Do you Bobby Brown's sentence will change him in any way?
