Chris Brown Appears in Court; Prosecution Gets More Time to Probe Alleged Violation

Looks like Chris Brown has found himself on the wrong side of the law once again. Brown sat alone in a Los Angeles court room on Friday to discuss the claims that he submitted fraudulent community service hours. He attended the meeting with his lawyer and the prosecutor, however after 35 minutes of discussion, the judge granted the lawyer more time to look at “additional discovery” in his case.

A probation violation case was filed against Brown in February. Prosecutors are accusing the 23-year-old of cheating on his 180 days of community service, which he was ordered to complete after pleading guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009.

According to CNN, District Attorney Jackie Lacey says the paperwork Brown submitted to prove his community service labor was “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.” He also claims that the “Look At Me Now” singer was not in town on the days he reported.

Mark Geragos, Brown's attorney, said after the last hearing that the prosecutor's filing was so fraudulent that he would ask the judge to punish the deputy district attorneys involved and call for a contempt of court hearing for filing false documents with the court.

While not much happened in Friday's hearing before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin, ultimately it could be big trouble for the singer. If Brown loses the case, the prosecution is requesting he restarts his 1,400 community service hours under supervision.

His next court date is scheduled for June 10.
