Chris Brown finds himself facing a new legal situation this week. On Feb. 5, the Los Angeles County District Attorney filed a motion requesting that the court refuse to accept the community service records provided by authorities in Brown's home state of Virginia. According to Fox News, many are alleging that the documents not only exaggerated the community service Chris performed as part of the 180 hours of community service and five-years probation required by the court for assaulting Rihanna in 2009, but, in some cases, placed Brown as working in Virginia while he was performing for documented tour dates.
When the community service requirement was first handed down, the court agreed to let Brown fulfill the requirement out-of-state, but this seems to have led to Brown using his mother's former position at the Tappahannock Children's Center and, as the D.A. suggested, a connection with the Chief of Police in Richmond, Va., to avoid actually completing his required amount of work. For many of his service hours, the only person providing the dates and times the singer worked, as well as the actual tasks completed, was his mother. Actual police supervision and documentation of his service hours only occurred on "nine or ten" occasions according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
So far, the District Attorney is only asking for Chris Brown's current service hours to be rejected and for him to complete legitimate community service within the state of California where the working hours can be more truthfully documented without the assistance of friends or family. Only time will tell if the falsified documents will lead to any additional charges for Brown or legal problems for the authorities in Virginia who signed off on them.
