BREAKING: Chris Brown Cops Plea Deal

In his assault case today, Chris Brown managed to negotiate a plea deal. The R&B singer will spend 180 days in a labor diversion program in Virginia, with 5 years of probation for his assault against ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Additionally, Brown is required to enroll in a domestic violence program.

Rihanna, who received a subpoena to testify, showed up at the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles dressed in all black and wearing dark sunglasses.

The hearing started around 1:30 p.m. PT with his family present in family seating.

UPDATE: The judge said if Brown and Rihanna are at the same public events, the 50-yard stay away turns into 10 yards. The stay away order lasts 5 years. If Brown violates probation, he could get up to 4 years in prison. So Brown is now a convicted felon and loses the right to vote or carry a gun.

Brown left the courtroom ... just after he left, Rihanna walked in the courtroom. The judge is now explaining the deal to her. The judge is telling Rihanna about the protective order.
