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.

Evidently, he and Geragos have run out of people to blame. I vote for the graffiti clean-up.

Dear TMZ, HELLO the judge explicitly said he will NOT GET COMMUNITY SERVICE he has to do COMMUNITY LABOR which is much harder to fudge and much more difficult in terms of what you have to do

That's it? 1000 hours of community service man I want Chris Brown & Lindsay Lohan's lawyers if I ever get into trouble b/c I don't know how they do it but these two ALWAYS get off easy. CB needs to be thrown in jail for a little bit and I'm not talking about in/out the same day. I'm talking 30days in county. He is a punk ass who had no remorse and thinks he is above the law. One of these days his anger (btw what exactly does this guy have to be angry about anyway?) is going to seriously hurt someone and then it will be too late. Instead of waiting for that to happen let's be proactive & nip this situation now. Enough of rewarding or letting off easy anyone (not just celebs but especially celebs) who behaves badly. We need to stop this **** right now!

Celebrity "justice" yet again.A regular person who pulled the same crap he did would have their probation revoked AND sent to jail. There would be none of this "do-over" BS.

Thats all he ever gets is community service, he will go back to Virginia have some local friend sign off he did the service and that's it. When gets into trouble he always runs back to Virginia for protection and cover. He is starting to give the state of Virginia a bad name.

I knew his probation was going to be reinstated, that's the way it works.


In the meantime . . . .

Another slap on the wrist. He should have gotten a few months in jail first and then another 1000 hours of supervised community service in LA, minimum.
