ANGELES, California (CNN) — Pop singer Chris Brown was sentenced
Tuesday to serve five years probation and more than 1,400 hours in
“labor-oriented service” for assaulting his pop star girlfriend,
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said in the
sentencing she wants to see Brown conduct “actual physical labor, as
opposed to some type of community service.”
The sentencing was delayed earlier this month because documents
detailing Brown’s proposed community service plan in Virginia, where he
maintains a legal residence and wants to serve his sentence, had not
arrived in time for Schnegg to review them.
Brown’s probation will be overseen by the state of California, the judge said.
He must also complete domestic violence counseling.
