Judge to review singer's probation

A judge has ordered a further review of Chris Brown's community service and travel to determine whether the R&B singer broke the terms of his probation for the beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown, 23, appeared in court in Los Angeles for the first time in more than a year and Superior Court judge Patricia Schnegg tried to sort through his probation record and the impact of a positive marijuana result during a random drug screening.

Judge Schnegg said community service logs from Brown's home state of Virginia were "somewhat cryptic" and additional review was needed to determine whether he had complied with his probation.

A spreadsheet sent by the Richmond, Virginia, police chief indicated Brown had completed 1,402 hours of community service, ranging from rubbish collection, washing cars, painting and tending to stables.

The judge said Brown produced a medicinal marijuana prescription from California and that she had never ordered him not to use drugs, so the positive drug test may not have a major impact on his probation.

She warned Brown that while his marijuana use may be legal, he needed to be mindful of his public image and his sway with young fans.

"You are not an average person who can sit in their living room and do what you want to do," Judge Schnegg said, noting that Brown's mother was sitting in the courtroom. "You are not only in the public eye, but you are on probation."

Brown was sentenced to five years of supervised probation after pleading guilty to felony assault for his February 2009 attack on Rihanna.

Before Monday, he had received positive reports from probation officials and praise from Judge Schnegg. The judge ordered Brown to return to court on November 1 for another update.
