Chris Brown’s percentage of success with the courts is 50/50 based on the last two days.
On Thursday, his hit-and-run charge was dismissed, but on Friday a judge threw the book at him.
The R&B singer — who was accused of lying about doing 180 hours of community service — was at risk of getting his probation revoked permanently and be sent to jail.
Well that didn’t happen on Friday, the district attorney withdrew motions challenging Chris’ previous community service and in exchange the Forever singer was ordered to perform 1,000 hours of community labor — that’s almost 10 times more than his original sentence.
Judge James Brandlin reinstated Chris’ probation and ordered him to do community labor, not community service.
And, the judge no longer allowed Chris to perform service in Virginia — he must do it all in California and only at one of these four locations under the supervision of the Los Angeles County Probation Department.
Chris was convicted in 2009 for assaulting this then girlfriend Rihanna and has been on probation ever since. If he doesn’t mess up, his probation will end August 25, 2014.
