Chris Brown Denied Unsupervised Probation
1 year ago
Brown and Rihanna Will Both Perform Sunday at the Grammys
Chris Brown has redeemed himself and his career from the public scrutiny of three years ago after assaulting his then girlfriend Rihanna.
But his good behavior hasn’t granted him an early release from supervised probation, said a Virginia judge.
The Grammy-nominated singer’s attorney requested in a letter that Brown, who will be performing at the awards show on Sunday, have unsupervised probation.
Brown was sentenced to five years of supervised probation in 2009 for the altercation that occurred on the eve of the Grammy Awards between him and Rihanna. He was also ordered to stay 10 yards away from the Barbados singer.
The judge agreed that Brown has earned “high remarks” for completing the terms of his sentencing, but said the singer should continue to report to a probation officer in his home state of Virginia.
Brown has been on his best behavior since the incident, his attorney wrote in a letter …”he has made great strides while under supervision.”
Brown is schedule to perform alongside Lil Wayne at this year Grammys. Rihanna will also be performing.
