LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has revoked Chris Brown's probation but allowed him to remain free for now after the R&B singer travelled without approval for a concert and failed to complete community service on time.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin allowed Brown to remain free at least until a March 20 hearing when the judge will receive an update from probation officials.
Brown was ordered by probation officials in December not to leave Los Angeles County without permission.
The Grammy-winning singer performed in San Jose in Northern California recently without obtaining permission to travel.
Attorney Mark Geragos told Brandlin that his office incorrectly advised Brown he didn't need permission to travel for the show.
Brown was supposed to complete 1 000 hours of community labour by the end of January, but he still has roughly 200 hours to complete.
