Chris Brown Appears In Court + Official Court Documents

Appearing solemn and nervous, Chris Brown stood Thursday before a Los Angeles Superior Court commissioner after being charged with felonies in the alleged beating of girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown, 19, did not enter a plea, and his arraignment was delayed until April 6. But the commissioner issued a protective order against the singer, saying, "Mr. Brown, you are not to annoy, harass, molest, threaten or use force or violence against anyone."

Brown, wearing a gray suit with a white handkerchief, stood next to his attorney Mark Geragos and answered only, "Yes" and "Yes, ma'am," to Commissioner Kristi Lousteau's procedural questions.

Rihanna, 21, did not attend the five-minute session, but her lawyer, Donald Etra, was in court. He did not request a more restrictive order that Brown stay away from her. The couple have reconciled since her alleged beating.

Asked on the way out of the courtroom how Rihanna was holding up, Etra said, "She's doing great. She is making sure her rights are being protected at every stage of the proceedings." As for why Rihanna didn't want a stay-away order, he said, "She did not feel a stay-away order was necessary."

If convicted, Brown faces anywhere from probation to a maximum four years and eight months in state prison, DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.

Check out the official report below:

This is absolutely unbelievable. I'm still trying to swallow how Rihanna could even consider taking him back after this, given the document also confirms that he was unfathful. That said, I still can't see Chris Brown's career having much relevance after this, even if he walks away completely free, which is also something I don't see happening. He should definitely do, and probably will do, some time for this.
