Chris Brown got a nice pat on the back from Judge Patricia Schnegg during a brief probation hearing Thursday in a Los Angeles court, reports USA Today.
“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,” Schnegg told Brown.
“I know that you will finish your domestic violence counseling program in just seven more sessions, which is excellent.”
The R&B singer, who assaulted Rihanna on Feb. 8, 2009, was sentenced in August 2009 to five years’ probation and 180 days of community labor, which he’s doing in his home state of Virginia. He checked in with the judge in February, May and August.
