Chris Brown is a free man!
The 25-year-old singer was released from a Los Angeles County jail at 12:01 a.m. Monday, says L.A. Sheriff's deputy Tony Moore, E! News can confirm.
Brown has been in custody since mid-March for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna. On May 9, L.A. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced Brown to one year in jail; he received credit for 234 days of time already served in jail and court-ordered rehab, which left him with 131 days to serve. A number of factors were considered, though, and officials gave the R&B star early release.
Brown's probation is extended until Jan. 23, 2015, and he will be required to submit to random drug testing at least three times a week, participate in psychiatric counseling two times a week and attend outpatient therapy at least twice a week. He also must complete whatever remains of the 1,000 additional hours of community service he was given last August when his probation was revoked following a car accident. (Charges related to the crash were later dismissed.)
He's due back in court Aug. 13 for a progress report.
