2012 Billboard Music Awards – Show

Chris Brown wasn’t required to appear in person at a progress-report hearing yesterday Los Angeles, but he will next time. The judge made a note of a recent activity that requires his attention. No, not that reported fight between he and Drake. Something else.

E! Online reports:

     Instead, Deputy District Attorney Mary Murphy asked L.A. Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg, who has signed off on a number of positive progress reports for Brown over the years, for an accounting of Brown’s community service hours, telling her she had noticed discrepancies in the hours he had reported.

     Brown was sentenced in August 2009 to five years formal probation, a year of domestic violence counseling (which he completed) and 180 days of community labor.

     Schnegg ordered a detailed audit of Brown’s service—he was about halfway through by the time of his last hearing—and told the Fortune artist’s lawyer that she wants Brown to appear in person next time.

     Brown’s attorney, Pat Harris, did not object to the audit and didn’t appear concerned by the request.
