During a progress report hearing Thursday stemming from a previous conviction of felony assault, singer Chris Brown was praised by the judge for doing well, RadarOnline.com reports. The singer was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community labor last year after being found guilty of assaulting his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

Brown arrived at the Los Angeles courthouse wearing a white shirt, black vest and khaki pants. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, and one bodyguard accompanied him.

Judge Patricia Schnegg was pleased with his progress so far, telling Brown, "You are doing very well. You are doing everything you are supposed to ... you are working consistently on your community labor."
