Chris Brown Set To Appear In Court Today For Probation Hearing
Chris Brown is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom this afternoon to update a judge on his probation in connection with the 2009 assault of former girlfriend, Rihanna.
The singer, who has been on probation since the incident, was arrested on October 27 on a felony assault charge after allegedly hitting a man in front of the W Hotel in D.C. Brown’s charge was later reduced to a misdemeanor.
If Brown is found guilty of assaulting the victim, the singer could be in violation of his probation and could face four years in prison.
Just one day after Brown’s case was reduced to a lesser charge, the singer checked himself into rehab where he is currently undergoing treatment as an outpatient. According to his rep, the singer checked himself in to “gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior.”
