Following the news last week that Bobby Brown faced a month in jail over
alleged probation violations - on Friday a judge slapped the singer with a 60 day jail sentence, claiming he could have ordered 120 days, but was going easy because of some positive moves on Brown's part.
Probation officers claimed Brown had refused to submit to a drug test, failed to pay his court-supervision fees in a timely manner and failed to provide proof he completed his substance-abuse rehabilitation program. Although the judge admitted Brown had paid $105 of his fees, had attended counselling and completed community service obligations, he found him guilty of the other violations and ordered him to stay in jail for a total of 60 days.
Brown is on probabtion relating to an earlier drink driving offense. He is due back in court on 5 May to face allegations of misdemeanor battery charge after allegedly hitting his wife, Whitney Houston, in an altercation earlier this year.
