Chris Brown Completes Yearlong Domestic Violence Course

Singer posted a picture of his course-completion certificate on Twitter.

Chris Brown completed his domestic violence course on Monday, and the proud graduate posted a picture of his certificate on Twitter to share with his followers.

The singer was sentenced to a domestic violence course in August 2009 after he reached a plea deal with Beverly Hills prosecutors in the wake of his conviction on charges of assault against then girlfriend Rihanna . Brown was required to take the once-a-week class for one year. The “Deuces” star was also sentenced to 180 days of community labor, placed on five years probation and issued a stay-away order from Rihanna.

“I have enough self-respect and decency to be proud of accomplishing this DV class,” Brown tweeted on Tuesday morning (December 21) about the end of his sentence. “Boyz run from their mistakes. Men learn from them!!! thx.”

Just last month, Brown once again earned praise from the judge overseeing his case, Patricia Schnegg.

“Of all probationers I’ve ever had, and I’ve had thousands of probationers, no one has ever done a better or more consistent job than you have,” she told Brown “And I really want to commend you for taking responsibility, and for actually working diligently to complete all of the things the court has required of you.”

The singer is due back in court on January 28 for his next status hearing.
