Recording artist Chris Brown (L) and his attorney Mark Geragos appear in Los Angeles court on November 20, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Brown was ordered to 90 days at an inpatient center, random drug testing and 24 hours of weekly community service. Brown was arrested last month for misdemeanor assault in Washington, DC and was already on probation for a felony domestic violence charge after a 2009 incident with then-girlfriend Rihanna.
R&B singer Chris Brown's next court appearance in Washington is now scheduled for Jan. 8.
A D.C. Superior Court judge granted the new date Monday. Brown's attorneys successfully argued that he should not be forced to leave anger management rehabilitation in Los Angeles and travel to Washington for Monday's hearing.
Brown was ordered into rehab last week following a Los Angeles court appearance.
Brown and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy will be required to appear at the next hearing. They were arrested last month on charges of punching a man outside a hotel who tried to jump into a picture with the singer. Brown faces a misdemeanor assault charge.
His lawyers sought the delay because they said they haven't had an opportunity to review evidence with him.
