Singer Chris Brown was praised for sticking to his probation during a progress hearing at an L.A. courtroom yesterday, according to MTV News.
"Of all probationers I've ever had, and I've had thousands of probationers, no one has ever done a better or more consistent job than you have,"Judge Patricia Schnegg told Brown, who was sentenced to 180 days of community labor and required to attend domestic-violence counseling following his February 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.
"I really want to commend you for taking responsibility," said Schnegg, "and for actually working diligently to complete all of the things the court has required of you."
The 21-year-old singer, who is barred from associating with Rihanna, 22, has completed 581 hours of community labor and has seven more counseling sessions remaining. His next court appearance is January 28, and Schnegg believes it will be his last.
"You've done a very good job," she told Brown.
