Hypothetically speaking: If someone allegedly committed a crime that would violate their probation and the verdict is pending , would you not wait until that judgement before you decide if they violated their probation? A Los Angeles judge apparently will as Chris Brown was ordered back to rehab for an additional two months this past Friday (February 28th).
Brown attended a hearing yesterday concerning if he violated his parole for his alleged assault of a man in Washington, D.C. this past October. The judge ordered Brown back to rehab until the verdict of that case was rendered.
Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder … and that’s why he has had such anger issues … this according to new court docs. Chris was in court today for a progress hearing in the Rihanna beating case. Documents were filed by the facility where Chris just completed 90 days of anger management therapy. In fact, Chris stayed longer, just completing 95 days. In the legal docs, an official from the rehab facility wrote that … in addition to his diagnosis … Chris was self-medicating inappropriately.
The judgement was given even with Brown receiving positive assessment from the staff at the rehabilitation facility. The director of the rehab program sent a letter to the court praising Brown for his improved behavior:
Mr. Brown is able to use behavioral strategies to manage acting out on impulses. Mr. Brown is teaming relaxation exercises that will reduce consequent impulsive behaviors.
Brown entered the rehab program voluntarily on October 28th, 2013. In less than a week, was kicked out for “throwing a rock through his mother’s car window” according to probation report.
Brown’s trial date for his Washington, D.C. assault case is set for April 17. Los Angeles County Judge James Brandlin will decide on if Brown’s alleged assault violated his probation and will lead to jail time on April 23.
