Good news, Chris Brown fans—his judge thinks he’s the best probationer ever too! “Out of thousands of probationers, no one has done a better or more consistent job than you have, and I really want to commend you for taking responsibility and for actually working diligently to complete all the things the court has required of you,” Judge Patricia Schnegg told the singer in an LA courtroom yesterday. How did he achieve this feat, you ask? Well, in the year plus since Brown was found guilty of assaulting Rihanna, Mr. “Deuces” has nearly finished his domestic violence counseling and completed 73 of his 180 days of community service (which included ironic tasks like graffiti cleaning—get it, Graffiti?—on roadways near his Virginia home). Two months in a year may not seem that impressive for some, but considering how much time he’s spent complaining about being blacklisted from radio, it’s no small feat.
“Obviously he’s gratified and he’s working hard to live up to everyone’s expectations,” said his lawyer, as Chris whizzed off to attend Us‘ Hot Hollywood party that night. Chris may not be able to get through “Man In The Mirror,” but he might get through this sentence.
