Chris Brown avoids jail despite claims that he poses a ‘danger to society’

R&B singer Chris Brown will not be spending anytime in jail according to a report by the Associated Press on Feb. 4.

Brown, who has been in a rehabilitation program, will remain in the program after a judge turned down a prosecutor’s motion to send the troubled singer to jail. Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Marry Murray cited Brown’s latest arrest in which he was charged with a misdemeanor assault as a reason he should be kept out of society.

“He continues to pose an increasingly violent danger to society,” Murray wrote.

The misdemeanor charge was a result of the D.C. case and an incident in which Brown threw a brick through his mother’s car window after a therapy session. She stated that she made the motion because of new information obtained about a man suffering a broken nose in the attack involving both Chris Brown and his bodyguard.

Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos argued successfully that the singer continues to make positive progress in the rehabilitation center and that the court should wait until the D.C. case is resolved. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandin agreed with Geragos based on reports from probation officials that Brown is indeed making progress in treatment.

Chris Brown, who remains on probation for a domestic attack on former girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009, has been ordered to return to court on Feb. 28 to update his progress. He has already served 191 of the 1,000 hours of community service he was ordered after he violated his probation a year ago.

Brown has mad news being involved with other incidences involving musical artists. He got into altercations with both Frank Ocean and hip-hop star Drake. Ocean, however, decided not to file charges.
