It’s been almost a year since Chris Brown has made news about assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna. After months of community service, a Los Angeles judge says that Brown is “making progress” on his probation.
A judge in Los Angeles met with Brown’s attorney to discuss about his probation for his assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna last year. Lawyer Mark Geragos said that Chris has completed almost 300 hours of community service, about 1/5th of the amount he is required to perform. Geragos added that Brown has attended 52 out of 53 domestic violence counseling sessions. Geragos, who represented clients like Michael Jackson, said that Brown was expected to complete his counseling in October.
Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said on Thursday that it appeared the singer was making progress and requested a formal probation report.
The 21-year-old Brown will be back in court on August 26 for another status hearing.
Brown was sentenced 5 years of probation last August and six months of community service after pleading guilty to assaulting Rihanna in their car on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards. He later apologized on national TV saying he was “very sad and very ashamed” of his actions.
