Brown, who will now spend his 25th birthday on May 5 behind
bars, has been held since March 14 after his dismissal from a
rehabilitation center violated the terms of his court-ordered
treatment related to his 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend,
the pop singer Rihanna.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin said
Brown would remain incarcerated unless a resolution on the terms
of his probation in the Rihanna case could be agreed to between
the prosecutor and Brown's attorney by a scheduled hearing on
Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, said if he cannot resolve the
case with prosecutor, Mary Murray, by next week, he will ask the
court to release Brown on certain terms and conditions.
Geragos' past requests to have Brown placed under house arrest
instead of jail have so far been denied.
The "Turn Up the Music," singer also faces a misdemeanor assault
trial in Washington, D.C., after he allegedly punched and broke
the nose of a man who was trying to get a picture with him last
The Washington trial, which could complicate matters in Brown's
probation case in Los Angeles, has been delayed so his defense
could arrange testimony of Brown's bodyguard, who was convicted
last month of misdemeanor assault in the same case.
