A judge offered praise to Chris Brown this morning for adhering to the terms of the suspended sentence resulting from his brutal attack on Rihanna last year.
Basically, everything is going according to plan.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said Brown is in good standing with the court and Chris continues to make progress in completing his community service and hard labor sentence, plus attending his domestic violence counseling.
In fact, the newly-minted 21-year-old has completed all but one of his required 52 anti-domestic-violence counseling sessions, and has served out 290 hours of hard labor, or roughly 36 of his required 180 days - in short, he's working hard.

The judge also praised him for making progress on the community service portion of his sentence, continuing with the progress made as of the star's last hearing.
Brown, who's due back in court August 26, is expected to complete all his hours by October. Chris has several years of less stringent probation coming after that.
Criticize him all you like for what he did, but no one can accuse him of getting off easy, or attempting to shirk his end of the deal he struck to avoid prison time.
Cough, Lindsay Lohan.
