Chris Brown appeared in court today in Los Angeles and pled guilty to assaulting Rihanna.

Chris Brown has been sentenced to 180 days hard labor in a Virginia prison camp and 5 years probation for his assault on former girlfriend and R&B singer, Rihanna.

According to RollingStone:

Brown’s legal team, led by lawyer Mark Geragos, managed to reach a plea bargain with the prosecution. After pleading guilty to an assault charge, Brown will avoid jail time by spending 180 days performing community labor in his native Virginia; he will also attend a domestic violence counseling program, both TMZ and the Los Angeles Times report.
