Singer and R&B star Chris Brown was sentenced yesterday for his February assault on his former girlfriend, pop star Rihanna. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg sentenced Brown to 5 years probation and 6 months of community labor. In addition to the probation and community labor, Brown is prohibited from going within 100 yards of Rihanna for 5 years.

The sentence was handed down after Judge Schnegg considered a probation report that noted two prior incidents of violence. Though these incidents were not reported to the police, they were still considered in aggravation of the Los Angeles assault.
