Chris Brown Due in Court for Progress Report

Chris Brown Due in Court for Progress Report

Published February 18, 2010

R&B singer Chris Brown is due in court today (Feb. 18) for a court-ordered progress report hearing due to his sentence from last year’s incident with then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown is to attend the hearing before Superior Court Judge Patricia M. Schnegg. At his last hearing on November 19th, Schnegg reported that Brown had gotten “an extremely favorable progress report.”

Brown has completed over 100 hours toward his 180 days of community service, and has completed several domestic violence counseling sessions.

Last June, the singer plead guilty after admitting that he attacked Rihanna after a pre-Grammy Awards party in Los Angeles earlier in the year. He was subsequently sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor, as well as a 52-week domestic violence-counseling program. A second felony count of criminal threats was dismissed as a result of Brown’s guilty plea.

Brown must also stay 100 yards away from Rihanna unless both are at an entertainment-related event, in which case he must stay 10 yards away.
