Despite a glowing progress report, a judge has denied Chris Brown‘s request to end his supervised probation early.
Mark Geragos, the singer’s attorney, went to court Thursday and argued that the star’s good behavior meant he no longer needed to be under the watch of a probation officer.
A progress report released earlier this month said that Brown had “made great strides,” specifically noting he had completed half of his court-ordered community service and complied with required drug testing.
But the positive feedback wasn’t enough to persuade Judge George Lomeli to amend the terms of Brown’s five-year probation, which stems from his 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The issue will likely be reviewed at Brown’s next progress hearing on July 10.
In the meantime, he must still report to his probation officer in his home state of Virginia.
