Chris Brown to stay on supervised probation
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge on Thursday ordered Chris Brown to remain on supervised probation and make another court appearance after he completes an overseas tour.
Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg did not address questions raised at a previous hearing about whether the R&B singer had completed the terms of his community labor sentence.
A prosecutor said a report filed for Thursday’s hearing did not add additional details about Brown’s service as previously requested by the court. Instead, it included the same spreadsheet of Brown’s hours that Schnegg called “somewhat cryptic” at a September hearing.
Brown remains on supervised probation for felony assault for an attack on Rihanna in 2009.
He is scheduled to begin a tour that spans several countries in Europe and South Africa on Nov. 14.
Brown “appears to be making a sincere effort to comply with terms and conditions of probation,” a probation officer wrote in a report prepared for Thursday’s hearing. The report recommended that Brown remain on probation under the same conditions he has abided by since pleading guilty to the attack on the eve of the Grammy awards.
Brown appeared at the hearing along with his mother and attorney Mark Geragos. He did not speak during the proceedings, and when he attempted to at one point during discussions of his schedule, Geragos joked, “I don’t dance, you don’t talk.”
Brown is scheduled to return to court Jan. 17.
