Sentencing in Chris Brown’s felony assault case has been moved up today.
Chris was supposed to have been formally sentenced on Thursday, but according to a media alert from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced the change in plan. MTV News reports that the D.A. didn’t specifically mention a cause for the early sentencing, but they stated that it was a “defense request” from Chris’ legal team.
Under the terms of his plea deal, Chris will be sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community labor. The judge in this case made it clear that she wanted the singer to be doing hard work like cleaning up graffiti.
