R&B singer Chris Brown has just gotten himself 1,000 hours of community service in his probation violation case.
The singer had a probation violation due to the hit and run charges, but the judge in the case reinstated his probation on the condition that he has to have a do-over with his previous community service hours.
There was a discrepancy in his original hours clocked for community service. He had 180 days of the service to do, but while he was supposed to be completing it, there were reports that he was actually in Cancun.
Among his choices for community service in Los Angeles, he can choose between highway cleanup, beach cleanup, PAWS (probation alternative work services) or graffiti removal. In any event, Brown had to report to his probation officer within 48 hours to learn his assigned duties.
The community service hours stem as a result of the 2009 Rihanna beating case. However the singer’s lawyer contested the allegations of those particular discrepancies, saying prosecutors “chose to ignore the actual evidence in an effort to find someone, anyone, to say he was not working.”
In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting fellow singer Rihanna earlier that year on the night of the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
