Chris Brown was released on Monday from a Los Angeles County jail, Fox News reports. Though details surrounding the singer’s release are currently pretty scarce, Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputy Tony Moore did confirm to the Associated Press that he was released at 12:01 pm.
As you may recall, the troubled star has been in custody since March, after being kicked out of a court-ordered rehabilitation program for violating the facility’s rules. During a May 9th court appearance, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced Chris to one year in prison after finding that the altercation he got into in Washington , D.C., last year violated his probation. He received credit for 234 days of time already served in prison and court-ordered rehab programs. This left him with a remaining 131 days. Not long after his release, the “Love More” singer took to Twitter to thank God and assure fans that he would be getting back to his musical roots.
“Humbled and Blessed…Back to the Music and the Fans…Thank you GOD.”
His probation has been extended to January 23, 2015. According to E! Online, Chris will be required to submit to drug testing three times per week, partake in psychiatric counseling twice per week and attend outpatient therapy twice per week. He is also still required to complete 1,000 hours of community service stemming from his 2009 domestic violence incident with then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He is scheduled to appear back in court on August 9 for a progress report.
We’re hoping he’s learned his lesson.
