Chris Brown, hip hop darling/violent little puke, finally received his sentence for beating gal pal Rihanna this February. Brown will be paying his dues doing hard labor, attending therapy sessions to address his more vicious tendencies, and staying away from bars or other establishments associated with drugs or alcohol.
