Chris Brown To Remain On Supervised Probation
The Yeah 3x singer is still paying the price for his 2009 assault on Rihanna...
According to the Associated Press, Brown was not in court for the hearing where his attorney asked that the singer's supervised probation end thanks to his good behaviour.
Superior Court judge George Lomeli, however, agreed with prosecutors, who argued that even with Breezys good marks to date, he should keep reporting to a probation officer in his home state, Virginia.
Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, attempted to end the probation, which is part of the sentence Chris received in June 2009 when he agreed to plead guilty to one count of felony assault and was sentenced to 180 days of community labour and five years of probation.
Geragos pointed to a probation report that said that Brown had been truthful with officers, passed all required drug tests and "has made great strides" while under probation.
To date, Brown has is half way through six months of roadside cleanup, graffiti removal and other manual labor he was ordered to do under the terms of the deal, with AP reporting that Lomeli didn't think it was unreasonable for Brown to stay under supervision while he finishes the rest of his community service hours.
The Beautiful People singer has already completed anger management and domestic violence counselling and a different judge in the case agreed last year to relax a restraining order that barred Brown and RiRi from contacting each other or getting too close to one another at music industry events.
The hearing came just days before Brown and Rihanna are slated to return to the Grammy stage for the first time since the February 2009 assault.
In advance, tongues have already begun wagging, with rumours flying last month that the exes have reunited recently and have been spending time together again.
