Embattled R&B singer Chris Brown was sentence on Tuesday, August 25 to serve 1,400 hours of physical labor for assaulting pop singer Rihanna. During an unexpected sentencing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said that she wanted the singer to do “actual physical labor, as opposed to some type of community service.”
The singer’ sentencing who was originally due on August 27 was moved -up because his documentation papers from his home state of Virginia had arrived early and was reviewed by the judge.
While Brown had requested that his probation and 1,400 hours be served in Virginia, Schegg ordered that his probation will be overseen by the state of California.
Brown must continue to stay 50 yards away from Rihanna and 10 yards if the two are at the same industry-related event. In addition to serving 1,400 hours of labor service, the singer was sentenced to five years probation and will be required to complete domestic violence counseling.
The order remains in place through 2014.
