LOS ANGELES (AP) — The legal “time out” Chris Brown has been given will remain a while longer.

A judge in Los Angeles has ordered the singer to stay in an anger-management rehab program for now. Judge James Brandlin has also set a date for the next hearing Brown’s status. That will be on April 23.

The date is significant in that it will come after the expected end of his assault trial in Washington D.C. Prosecutors have asked that Brown be sent to jail for violating probation with his October arrest — but Brown’s lawyers want to wait until the D.C. case is resolved.

In the Washington incident, Brown and his bodyguard are accused of punching a man and breaking his nose outside a hotel.

Brown is on probation for his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
