Prosecutors: Chris Brown Failed To Complete Community Service, Violated Probation
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Los Angeles County prosecutors filed a motion Tuesday suggesting singer Chris Brown violated probation for failing to complete court-ordered community labor.
Brown failed to provide “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that he completed the required 180 days of community labor, District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement.
The court had allowed the singer to complete the service in his home state of Virginia.
“In a motion filed by Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray, the court was asked to decline to accept Brown’s community labor in Virginia due to what appears to be “significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.
Prosecutors are asking the court to require Brown to complete all of his hours in Los Angeles County under the supervision of the probation department.
Brown, who has been on probation since June 2009, was ordered to complete the labor as a part of a five-year probationary sentence after he pleaded no contest to assaulting his ex-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.
