It's jail for Da Brat. You remember last year when she hit a waitress with a rum bottle because the waitress wasn't attracted to her? Well, Da Brat plead guilty to aggravated assault yesterday and was sentenced to three years in jail, seven years of probation, and just for good measure 200 hours of community service.
This to me, is one of the worst deals I have seen in a really long time. She plead guilty to this. This was her deal. This was the best she could get? Oh, and don't forget the lawsuit the waitress filed against Da Brat and also against the club which is owned by Jermaine Dupri.
Now, even though the waitress worked for the club and was bleeding and in serious trouble that night, the club refused to kick out Da Brat.
Wow. This is the longest sentence I have seen for something like this in a long time. I am all for celebrities standing up and taking their punishment, and I think Da Brat should be praised for that at least, but it seems excessive. You are basically talking ten years and ten million dollars or so. People who murder people don't always serve that much time.
I know, I know, I am usually really strong for victims, and I am here as well. I mean, the waitress was an aspiring actress and is permanently scarred on her face. Got it, but it just seems excessive. Maybe I am just being more lenient because it is Friday.
