Prosecutor wants redo on Chris Brown
There is no credible evidence that Chris Brown completed the community service he was required to do in the beating of Rihanna, and he should be forced to repeat six months of manual labor in Los Angeles, prosecutors told a judge Tuesday.
A motion by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said the records submitted to prove that Brown finished the community labor sentenced by Virginia authorities contain numerous discrepancies and that the R&B singer was essentially unsupervised.
Brown was ordered to serve five years on probation and perform six months of community labor after he pleaded guilty in the February 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
