R and B singing superstar Chris Brown just caught a break with a Los Angeles judge today in his probation revocation hearing because his honor has sentenced the singer to 1 year for violating his probation. Once all the math is done, Chris Brown will be released for good behavior and receive a 2 for 1 credit for every day he has sat rotting in the county lock up. Here is what TMZ is reporting:

Chris Brown has just been sentenced to spend another 4-plus months in jail … for violating his probation in the Rihanna case … but the reality is, he could be released by week’s end.

Brown was in court Friday afternoon … where he admitted he violated his probation by getting into a fight with a dude in Washington D.C. 

That’s all the judge needed to hear.  He sentenced Chris to 1 year in jail.  HOWEVER, Chris got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars.  That leaves 131 days in the pokey.

But we’re told the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept has been releasing inmates sentenced to 1 year after 240 days.  And here’s the thing.  Chris gets credit for 2 days for every 1 he served behind bars, so when you add it up, he has credit for 234 days — 6 days shy.  So he could be released in days.

The judge could have gone a lot harder — 4 years in prison.  But Chris got a break because the judge took into account he was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which could account for some of the violence.  

The judge also ordered Chris to attend therapy sessions with a shrink 2 times a week.   And he must submit to random drug testing 3 times a week.

The singer still must appear in a Washington, DC courtroom to answer for the simple assault charge on June 25th. The fact that he has admitted to the LA judge that he did in fact assault the 20-year-old male victim, federal prosecutors will likely introduce that as evidence in his upcoming trial. If he is convicted for the crime, he will at best receive a misdemeanor probation or receive a few months in jail. Attorney Mark Geragos better start working on a plea deal for the singer. #Justsaying
