Los Angeles prosecutors say Chris Brown likely faked his community service records which show his labor in and around Richmond.
Prosecutors filed a 19-page motion asking that the Tappahannock native be found in violation of his probation and calling into question the community service records provided to the court. They want his Virginia service thrown out and for him to re-do the work in Los Angeles County.
Brown was sentenced to complete 180 hours of community service after an altercation with Rihanna in August 2009 on the day before the Grammy Awards.
"Chris Brown has successfully completed approximately 202 days of supervised manual/community labor in the Richmond area," the letter reads.
However, the motion filed Tuesday calls into question the record keeping, saying the documentation contains "significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and, at worst fraudulent reporting and possible misdemeanor violations..."
One example cited by the motion shows Richmond Police reporting service, while airline records show him flying to Cancun. On March 15, 2012 RPD records show him working four hours picking up trash at the 3rd precinct . However, prosecutors say records from Excelaire Service, Inc. show he boarded a private jet in Richmond headed to Mexico during the hours logged in the records.
Another example has Brown working trash pick up on December 12, 2011 on the same day he returned from Dubai to Washington, D.C., which prosecutors say is "unreasonable to believe."
The motion filed by Los Angeles Deputy Dist. Atty. Mary Murray calls the accounting by the Richmond Police Department "inconsistent, unsubstantiated and unverifiable."
Prosecutors first called into question the record keeping back in September. Tuesday's motion says Virginia Probation accepted supervision, but "no one from that Department ever approved scheduled, supervised, monitored, or verified any of the community labor reported to this Court."
The motion specifically claims Brown completed more then 500 hours of community labor at Tappahannock Children's Center, but prosecutors say the work is unverifiable and undocumented. Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins, was previously director of the center and remained involved in the facility, with her own set of keys, the motion states.
The current administrator for the day care center, Ida Minter, told prosecutors she never saw Brown do any work, was never given a schedule of his work, but assumed he did the work, "because she smelled cleaning products and fresh paint," the motion states. Further, it says Brown was let into the facility by his mother, without probation or law enforcement supervision.
