Chris Brown jailed for 6 months

 Chris Brown has been ordered to stay in jail for at least another week.

Lawyers acting for the 24-year-old singer appealed for him to be allowed out of prison yesterday, but Jude Victor Greenberg denied the request until a probation revocation hearing takes place on May 1. Chris is standing trial for misdemeanour assault charges for allegedly hitting a fab by the name of Parker Adams and breaking his nose

Chris' arrest for the assault, which took place in Washington DC in October marked a violation of the probation which was set in 2009 following his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna, but he was allowed to enter rehab rather than prison. However, when he was kicked out of the clinic for rule breaking, he was subsequently jailed and his lawyer argued it was unfair he had been in prison for 39 days without a hearing.

If convicted, the entertainer faces a maximum of six months in jail and $US1,000 fine ($1,163), but he also faces up to four more years in jail in California as a result of violating the terms of his probation.
