A judge said Monday that R&B singer Chris Brown should remain in rehab, turning down a prosecutor's request to have Brown jailed for his arrest in Washington, D.C. last year.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Brandlin says Brown appears to be making progress in a treatment facility and should remain there, according to the Associated Press.
The prosecutor wanted Brown taken into custody over a misdemeanor assault case filed against the singer in D.C. Brown remains on probation in Los Angeles over his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brandlin revoked the singer's probation in December but didn't change his sentence Monday. Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos asked Brandlin to allow Brown to remain in treatment and wait for the Washington case to be resolved.
