Chris Brown Accused of Not Completing Community Service
After pleading guilty to the 2009 attack of Rihanna, Chris Brown was required to do 180 days of community service in Virginia. While his early efforts were promising, prosecutors asked the judge to revoke the singer’s probation, according to February 5 reports. Prosecutors claimed that Brown’s hours were not supervised fully and expressed concerns about anger management after the recent Frank Ocean fight and Good Morning America incident.
On Tuesday, the day before Brown’s hearing, his attorney Mark Geragos stated: "I plan on asking for sanctions from the DA's office for filing in frivolous, scurrilous and frankly defamatory motion."
On February 6, the rapper came to court with Rihanna, who reportedly blew Brown a kiss and left with him later. At the hearing, Superior Court Judge James Brandlin said prosecutors did not request Brown’s probation be revoked, so he would not revoke it. Brandlin requested more information about the issue and scheduled another hearing for April 5.
The current issue goes back as far as September, when 701 hours were recorded over seven months. Previously, the singer took two years to complete this amount. Brown had been doing manual labor at the Tappahannock Children’s Center, of which his mother is affiliated, and a local detective reported him as working. However, a floor cleaner claims the “Turn Up the Music” singer was not present for his recorded hours.
Because of documentation and statements, prosecutors asked the judge to have Brown repeat his community service in Los Angeles. In a statement, Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray wrote: "This inquiry provided no credible, competent or verifiable evidence that defendant Brown performed his community labor as presented to this court."
