Judge Delays R&B Singer Chris Brown's Sentencing

A judge delayed R&B singer Chris Brown’s sentencing for his assault on pop star Rihanna today, due to questions about the details of his community service requirement.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said she needed more information from Brown's home state of Virginia about what type of work the singer was likely to perform in order to complete a "community labor" portion of his sentence.

The star is to serve five years’ probation.

When Brown struck a plea deal with prosecutors in June, the judge was resolute that his six months of community service include physically labor and unpretentious work such as picking up trash along roadways.
