In the deal, which calls for no jail time, Brown will be placed on probation for the next 5 years; have to complete 180 hours of community service; attend domestic violence classes for a year; and stay at least 50 yards away from Rihanna at all times (with the exception being industry events, when he must stay 10 yards away from her).

The 50-yard rule was imposed in spite of a request by Rihanna’s representatives that it not be part of the plea barging.
