Judge orders Chris Brown to remain in jail



LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge says R&B singer Chris Brown must remain in jail until a hearing in late April because he failed to remain in a court-mandated rehab program.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Monday that he was troubled by comments that Brown made during his rehab stay in which the singer allegedly said he was good at using guns and knives.

The 24-year-old singer was arrested on Friday after he was dismissed from a Malibu facility where he was being treated for anger management and other issues.

Brown had been in rehab since November, when Brandlin ordered him to receive treatment as part of his sentence for a 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos asked that Brown be allowed to enter another rehab program, but Brandlin refused and set a probation violation hearing for April 23.

Chris Brown is facing a court hearing Monday over why he was kicked out if rehab and what penalties he should face.

The 24-year-old R&B singer spent the weekend in jail after being arrested after his dismissal from a Malibu treatment facility for violating its rules.

Prosecutors could ask that Brown remain in jail. They had sought jail time for the Grammy-winning singer last month, but the request was rejected.

Brown had been in rehab since November, when Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin ordered him to receive treatment for anger management issues.

Brown remains under court supervision after his 2009 attack on the-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the Grammy Awards.

Go back and reread...he is in the pokey for been tossed out of the rehab. He will be given a slight tap on the head and sent to another rehab and will oncea gain screw up as he is too stupid to figure out that all he needs to do is play by their rules and answer the questions as they want them to be answered...

He just needs to man up, 24 and acts like a child. Bi-polar diagnosis is not an excuse to continue bad behavior. You set down with a psych doctor, give the appropriate response and now you have a diagnosis. You are happy, Dr is happy, pharmacy is happy especially if you need two $25 pills a day for the rest of your life. Psych medicine is total bull ****. The judge is holding him accountable, that is the only thing that will save the Chris Browns in the world.

When the Judge gives you a way out and then you blow it ... jail is where you need to be. Brown thinks he is above it all and does not recognize that he is a ticking bomb. To be in the trouble he is in and not be able to coast through a stint in rehab to minimize his sentence ... well, that says it all. It is a possibility that he will always represent a threat to those around him. The Judge made the right decision.

IF THIS IS SO TRUE THEN WHY AREN'T LINDSEY LOHAN OR CHARLIE SHEEN IN JAIL? JUDGES HAVE GIVEN THEM A MILLION CHANCES AND THEY KEEP BLOWING THEIR WAY OUTS. LIKE I SAID BEFORE IF RHIANNA WAS SHA'KEMA HIS CAREER AND FREEDOM WOULD BE ON CLOUD 9 AND NOT IN JAIL OR REHAB B/C NO ONE WOULD CARE; SHE'D BE JUST ANOTHER BLACK GIRL. SMH!!!.......JENNY JONES!!!

I work in rehab and you wouldn't believe how many come in thinking that treatment is easier than jail. Wrong! We have had clients leave and would rather finish their time in jail. This does not fix the problem however. He is a grown man and knows the difference from right and wrong. You do the crime - you do the time.
