Chris Brown Preliminary Probation Violation Hearing Set for July
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) – During a court appearance Monday a preliminary hearing was scheduled for July 15 into whether singer Chris Brown violated his probation.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has been unhappy with Brown’s court-ordered community service, performed in his hometown of Richmond, Va.
The DA’s office said there was sloppy paperwork and oversight in relation to that community service.
The DA’s office requested more documentation and paperwork from the Richmond Police Department, which the department has sent over to Los Angeles.
Prosecutors were to review this documentation, and decide whether they want to proceed with a probation violation hearing against Brown.
Prosecutors were expected to deliver their decision to the judge whether everything is resolved or whether they want to proceed with a probation violation hearing July 15.
Correction: An earlier version of this article erroneously reported that Chris Brown was ordered to attend a July 15 probation violation hearing. It will be a preliminary hearing into whether a probation violation hearing will take place and Brown’s expected attendance was unclear. This story has been updated to reflect the changes.
