Los Angeles – A judge recently denied the request of a prosecutor to place singer Chris Brown in jail. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin determined on Monday that Brown should remain in treatment after probation officials reported he has been making good progress.
Brown was sentenced to three months in a rehabilitation program after an arrest last year. Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray sought to have him placed in jail, calling for a full probation violation hearing due to the case. He was previously placed on probation in connection with an attack of his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
Murray is quoted as writing in a motion, “He continues to pose an increasingly violent danger to society.”
Brown was ordered by Brandlin to return to court on Feb. 28 to provide an update of his progress.
