Troubled singer Chris Brown checked himself into a drug rehab facility in hopes of convincing a California judge that he should not be held responsible for his criminal actions.
The LA Times reports that Brown, 24, checked into rehab a day after his charge for feloniously assaulting a man was reduced to a misdemeanor assault.
“Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” a representative for the singer said in a statement Tuesday. “His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.”
Rehab probably won’t do Brown any good. Brown’s antisocial problems stems from his lack of parental love and guidance as a boy, which caused him to mistrust adults and withdraw from society at large.

This email came from a credible source within the Fulton County courthouse. The email concerns Fulton County Superior Court Judge John Goger who is presiding over Tameka Raymond’s emergency hearing to request custody of her 2 sons with Usher Raymond.
Usher and Tameka’s 5-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned in his aunt’s swimming pool on Monday.
Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, is still recovering in an Atlanta area hospital. The boy inhaled chlorine water into his lungs and required respiratory support when he first arrived in the ICU.
Yesterday, Tameka tweeted a photo of herself holding Cinco in his hospital room.
In the caption she wrote:
My favorite 5 year old. What a blessing! I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident. URV had an angel named Kile Ishmael and our Lord and true savior to look after him. Words cannot express the relief and how thankful to God I truly am. Thank you Jehovah God, Jesus and Kile…also The AV worker that saved my son is my Hero!!! Period
Judge Goger is the same judge who returned a girl to her millionaire father after the father was arrested twice for abusing her.
