This Thursday Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, showed up without the r'n'b singer himself for a hearing. Geragos asked that his supervised probation end because of Brown's good behaviour. Superior Court Judge George Lomeli agreed that Brown was on good behaviour however ordered that he continue to report to a probation officer in his home state of Virginia.
The request came after Brown's probation officer had indicated in a report that Brown had been truthful to his officers, passed drug tests, and "has made great strides" since being on probation. Brown has also taken anger management as well as domestic violence counselling. He has completed half of the six months' worth of roadside cleanup, graffiti removal and other manual labor that was required of him. He was ordered to serve five years on probation since the incident with Rihanna, where he left her bruised and bloody, unable to perform at the Grammys.
Judge Lomeli said he thought it was not unreasonable for Brown to remain under supervision while he completes more hours of community service. Lomeli arranged another hearing for July 10th to reassess to his progress.
