Chris Brown insists he did not confess to assault in Washington DC.

Chris Brown has admitted he violated his probation, and been sentenced to serve an additional 131 days in jail but insists he did not confess to assault.

The R&B singer appeared in a Los Angeles court Friday where he conceded that he broke the terms of his probation in Washington, D.C., last year but his lawyer Mark Geragos says this does not mean Chris confessed to charges he beat up alleged victim Parker Adams.

Geragos told TMZ that he, not Chris, told Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin that it was 'more likely than not' that the 25-year-old star had committed the violation but said there is no way a D.C. judge could use it to nail him for the assault charges.

The prosecutor must still show 'beyond a reasonable doubt' that Chris attacked the alleged victim.
Brown has been under court supervision after pleading guilty in 2009 to severely beating pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend.
Judge Brandlin sentenced him to serve 365 days in custody, but gave him credit for 234 days he has spent in rehab and jail.

The Grammy winner has been in custody since mid-March, when he was arrested after being dismissed from a court-ordered rehab sentence.

The singer faces a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington after Adams accused the singer and his bodyguard of hitting him outside a hotel.

It is unclear how many days in custody Brown will actually serve but with time served and overcrowding, TMZ speculates he could be out in a matter of days.a
