Chris Brown may be wearing “community labor” orange again in the near future.
Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey claimed Tuesday that the singer failed to provide “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that he completed the 180 days of community service ordered of him back in August 2009, and has requested that the court address these “inconsistencies” and order Brown to complete his civic obligation.
Brown, 23, was allowed to complete the service “in his home state of Virginia, as part of a five-year probationary sentence for assault,” committed upon his girlfriend Rihanna in Feburary 2009.
According to a statement from the DA’s office: Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray filed a 19-page motion, asking the court to decline to accept Brown’s Virginia community labor due to what appears to be “significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.”
The DA’s office confirms to omg! that Brown is due in Judge Brandlin’s court on Wednesday at 2 p.m. for a regularly scheduled probation hearing, and that the motion will be addressed at the hearing.
At question was paperwork indicating that Brown had completed his sentenced hours at a day care center where his mother once worked. Investigators from the DA’s office traveled to Virginia and found that, “the evidence shows that although Virginia Probation accepted supervision of Defendant, no one from that Department ever approved, scheduled, supervised, monitored or verified any of the community labor reported to this Court.” Moreover, “claims that the Defendant cleaned, stripped and waxed floors at (the Tappahannock Children’s Center) have been credibly contradicted.”
Additionally, the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision Office reported that Brown completed 701 hours of labor, and thus was eligible to be released. However, the motion points out that, “180 days at 8 hours a day is 1,440 hours of labor, not 701.”
omg! has reached out to Brown’s rep and attorney, but has not heard back yet at this time.
