After six years, performing artist, Chris Brown is officially off probation!
During a hearing on Friday (March 20), the judge decided Brown successfully completed all the terms of his sentence. After the hearing, Brown tweeted, “IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!!”
Since his probation, Brown continued to make headlines for various reasons in violating his probation: the Washington D.C. felony assault charge, his fights with Drake and Frank Ocean, and his boot from rehab which landed him in jail for three months in 2014. Brown stayed focused, releasing his album X in fall 2014, but trouble seemed to follow him. In January 2015, his probation was temporarily revoked when he performed at a San Jose nightclub where five people were shot and injured. Brown avoided jail time, but the judge ruled then that March 20 would be the day to check in. The outcome was in Brown’s favour and now the artist is officially off probation.
