LOS ANGELES - The Honorable Patricia Snegg, the judge who will sentence 20-year-old R&B singer Chris Brown for the beating of his girlfriend, Rihanna, is considering graffiti removal as an alternative to jail time, said sources with the Los Angeles Superior Court Clerk's Office. Brown is scheduled to be sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community labor.
Brown, the "Run It!" singer, pleaded guilty in June to felonious assault before a preliminary hearing in which Rihanna was called to testify. "I saw firsthand what uncontrolled rage can do," he told fans. "I have sought (counseling) and am continuing to seek help to ensure that what occurred in February can never happen again."
"The first graffiti Brown is likely to have to remove are all his published lyrics," said one of his agents who spoke to TheSpoof.com on conditions of animosity.
