Not even fame and fortune can keep some people out of trouble. Check out some celebrities who have served out jail or prison sentences.
Chris Brown managed to avoid prison time for assaulting Rihanna in 2009 by taking a plea deal, but ran into trouble while on probation thanks to an October 2013 felony assault arrest in Washington, D.C. He still could have avoided jail time by completing court-ordered stints in an anger management rehab facility and a Malibu, California, treatment facility. While he successfully did his 90 days in the anger management rehab facility, he was kicked out of the second rehab facility in March 2014 for violating rules and sent directly to a Los Angeles County jail. He remained behind bars until he was granted early release on June 2, 2014, due to overcrowing.
