So, a day after Chris Brown was cleared in a hit-and-run case, a Los Angeles judge has revoked his probation. The Associated Press reports,
A judge reinstated Chris Brown’s revoked probation Friday and gave the singer a new sentence to perform 1,000 hours of community labor such as cleaning beaches or highways, removing graffiti or performing other chores assigned by the probation department.
The popular R&B singer sat in a courtroom for nearly an hour as his lawyer, Mark Geragos, and a prosecutor shuttled in and out of the judge’s chambers, with Geragos apparently seeking his client’s approval for a plan to keep him from facing more serious consequences.
Superior Court Judge James Brandlin finally emerged and announced that an agreement had been reached.
Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray withdrew a request to rescind Brown’s probation because of a hit-and-run charge that was dismissed in another court Thursday.
Brandlin then told Brown he must perform 1,000 hours of community labor with one of four public programs: California Department of Transportation highway cleanup, graffiti removal, beach cleanup or Probation Alternative Work Services.
