Bobby Brown must have been incredibly good during the nine hours that he was in jail, as that is what he ended up serving of his 55 day sentence for DUI.
The singer went into the Los Angeles County Jail at 9:58 AM on Wednesday, according to TMZ, and was released just nine hours later. That time served would probably come as a surprise even to a spokesman for the L.A. Sheriffs Department who predicted that he would serve nine days of the 55 day sentence.
The problem is not a lax judicial system but an overcrowded jail situation. There are only so many beds in the jails in California and they are filled with people who are deemed to be more of a threat to society than someone convicted of DUI. A very similar situation has occurred with such people as Lindsay Lohan and Khloe Kardashian.
Brown will still have to serve four-years probation and attend 18 months of alcohol education classes.
