Chris Brown

Sentenced to 1,000 MORE HOURS

Of Community Service

Chris Brown just got his ass handed to him in court -- the judge sentenced him to 1,000 more hours of community labor after the L.A. County D.A. accused him of fudging his records.

As we reported, the D.A. believes the singer violated his probation in the Rihanna beating case by submitting bogus community service reports -- in one case even swearing he was picking up trash in Virginia when he was actually on a private jet to Cancun.

The judge revoked Chris' probation last month in the wake of hit-and-run allegations, but reinstated it today on the condition Chris completes an additional 1,000 hours of community service.

Think of it like a do-over -- because of the discrepancy in Chris' original labor hours, the singer won't get ANY credit for service he may or may not have completed since his conviction. Chris was originally sentenced to 180 days of community labor (1,440 hours).

Unlike last time -- when the judge said Chris could complete his labor in his home state of Virginia -- the judge today ordered that Chris' service must be supervised by L.A. County officials.

Chris can choose between Caltrans (aka highway cleanup), beach cleanup, probation alternative work services (PAWS), or our personal favorite ... graffiti removal.

Chris must also report to a probation officer within the next 48 hours. He did not look happy in court.

The good news ... Chris' probation will finally end in August 2014. One more year to go.

When will the DA learn? In LA the rich and famous can do whatever they want. I think they have diplomatic immunity or something.

Good! This is the LEAST of what he deserves since he deserves to go to jail for violating his probation by falsifying his community service! I think the DA was wrong to not ask for jail time. Of course he has violated his probation a million times including beating up Frank Ocean and they still won't put him in jail. Maybe when he kills someone they will put him in jail.

Harvey promotes racism and hates Chris, fact. Charlie Sheen on 4 occasions, shoots girlfriend, sticks a knife to wife's throat, slams one girlfriend against the ground, and threatened Denise, served not 1 hour of community service. RACISM, Pure and simple. What are you going to do when blacks and Hispanics dominate this country? Where you gonna hide? We are not evil like that, though.

Looks like he'll be paying double the dollars out of pocket to get away from doing community service in Cali.

I'm sure he'll run right out and take care of this, no problem.
