Nearly four years after his altercation with Rihanna, Chris Brown is still doing time for his crime (and deservedly so). A judge reinstated Brown’s revoked probation and gave the singer 1,000 hours of community service on Friday. The community service sentence includes cleaning beaches or highways, removing graffiti or performing other chores assigned by the police department.
The judge’s decision was a result of his legal troubles from his arrest four years ago for the assault on his girlfriend, Rihanna. The popular R&B singer sat in a court room as prosecutors and his defense attorney went in and out of the judges chamber in an effort to keep the consequences facing Brown as minimal as possible.
According to The Huffington Post, Brown, 24, did not speak the entire time he was in court accept to agree to the deal. His mother and two other friends were there to support Brown during the hearing. Brown has a year to complete the community service and all work done in the past will not count toward this new sentencing. It’s been a rough time for Brown lately. He’s been on Twitter with a lot of sobering remarks. At the end of the day, you make the bed you sleep in.
