Chris Brown making progress on probation

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A judge on Thursday heard that R&B singer Chris Brown has made progress on his sentence for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna last year on the eve of the Grammy awards. An attorney for Brown told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg the singer had completed more than 290 hours of hard labor and attended all but one of his mandatory 52 counseling sessions for domestic violence. Judge Schnegg said it appeared Brown was making progress and she set a future status hearing for August 26. Brown, 21, whose hits include “Run It!” and “Kiss Kiss,” was sentenced in August 2009 to five years probation, ordered to perform 180 days of community service and attend domestic abuse counseling. He attacked pop star Rihanna in the early morning hours of February 8, 2009 after the couple left a music industry party in Los Angeles. The assault left Rihanna bloody and bruised and caused both a firestorm of media coverage. Brown has since apologized to his fans, calling the incident “unacceptable,” and the two have broken up and resumed their respective careers. Rihanna, 22, has enjoyed several top hits in the United States, including “Umbrella” and “Take a Bow.” (Reporting by Bob Tourtellotte; Editing by Jill Serjeant)
