Chris Brown and his lawyer Mark Geragos at Los Angeles County Superior Court (August 5th 2009)

R&B singer Chris Brown, pictured above with his lawyer Mark Geragos, attended a very important court date Wednesday (Aug 5) at Los Angeles County Superior Court. There, the judge announced that his sentencing would be delayed until August 27th. Brown is currently on probation, which was the result of a plea deal, after being charged with two felonies for assault on ex girlfriend Rihanna during their much-publicised fight.

The plea deal states that Brown will be on probation for no less than five years. He will also be required to attend weekly counseling and perform community service in his homestate of Virginia. But according to AP, the judge presiding over the case has yet to hear back from officials in Virginia, who are supposed to make certain that Chris endures “community labor work,” and not just community service. Community labor work includes hard labor tasks such as graffiti removal, roadside cleanup and washing schoolbuses or firetrucks.

Chris Brown is also hard at work on his third studio album, Graffiti, due to hit stores sometime this fall, which coincidentally is around the same time Rihanna plans on dropping her fourth album.
