Judge Praises Chris Brown: "No One Has Done a Better Job Than You"

The judge commends the pop star for his hard work toward completing his community service

Ever since his domestic abuse scandal with Rihanna, Chris Brown has gotten used to receiving criticism. So it was a definite change of pace when the pop star was praised  by a judge Thursday, when he appeared in a Los Angeles court to give a progress report on his probation.

"Of all the probationers I have had, no one has done a better job, or been more consistent than you. You are working diligently," Judge Patricia Schnegg told Brown, who was sentenced in August 2009 for the assault of former girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown was sentenced to serve five years probation and to spend more than 1,400 hours in "labor-oriented service." He still has seven more sessions of domestic violence counseling and, to date, has completed 581 hours of community labor.

The singer will remain on probation and is scheduled to return to court on Jan. 28 for another progress report.
