Chris Brown Receives ‘Extremely Favorable’ Report From Judge

Singer has already served 100 hours of community service.

Chris Brown has received an "extremely favorable" report from probation officials overseeing his felony assault case, a judge said Thursday.

Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom to offer a judge his first progress report since being sentenced for beating ex-girlfriend Rihanna earlier this year. He talked and laughed with his lawyer before the hearing, which took less than 10 minutes.

The R&B singer is serving five years of probation and must attend domestic violence counseling and perform six months of community labor in Virginia.
