Judge: Chris Brown Doing a ‘Great Job’ With His Probation
Here’s a report that Chris Brown can stick to his refrigerator with a gold star and smiley-face sticker attached.
The “I Can Transform Ya” singer received glowing reviews from Judge Patricia Schnegg at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse on Thursday, during a progress hearing on his probation. (Brown was sentenced to five years probation, along with one year of domestic-violence counseling and six months of community service, in August 2009 after pleading guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna during a blow-up following a pre-Grammys party.)
Schnegg told Brown (who was accompanied by his attorney Mark Geragos),
“You are doing very well on probation. You are doing a good job. It looks like you are working consistently on your community labor hours and I know it is a big job.”
Schnegg went on to note that Brown, 21, has only missed two of his domestic-violence classes—which, by Lindsay Lohan standards, is practically perfect attendance.
Brown is due back in court on November 18 for another progress hearing. In the meantime, his movie Takers—co-starring Hayden Christensen, Matt Dillon and T.I.—is in theaters tomorrow, and he is currently working on a new album, due out sometime next year. That should be enough activity to keep him out of trouble.
