Chris Brown in court for probation update

Chris Brown's attorney says the R&B singer has completed nearly 300 hours of community service since being sentenced for beating Rihanna.

Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday morning to offer a judge an update on his community service and domestic violence counseling. Attorney Mark Geragos says Brown is expected to complete his counseling in October.

He's completed roughly 20 percent of the community labor work he's required to perform.

Brown was sentenced last year to five years of probation and six months of community labor for the February 2009 attack on his ex-girlfriend.

The 21-year-old singer is due back in court on Aug. 26 for another update, and a judge has requested a formal probation report on his progress.
