While all your problems may be known to the world, some celebrities have proven it just might pay to be popular – at least when it comes to striking plea deals. I’m not saying they get off because of who they are, but let’s face it, there have been some pretty sweet deals given to some celebs who have clearly broken the law. Below are some of the most popular celebrity plea deals in history. See if you think they got off hard or easy.

Chris Brown

By now everyone has heard of Chris Brown’s infamous fight with his then girlfriend Rihanna. In 1999, a last-minute plea deal was announced between Chris Brown and the state of California in the felony assault case. For his guilty plea, Brown was sentenced to 180 days of community labor. He was also ordered to stay away from Rihanna for five years.
