Los Angeles: Rapper Chris Brown has been given a new sentence to perform 1,000 hours of community labour.

Judge James Brandlin ordered him to do the court-mandated work in Los Angeles County and to report to a probation officer within the next 48 hours, reported Ace Showbiz.

Brown was sentenced to 180 days of community labour (1,440 hours) as part of his probation after pleading guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Last year, he was accused of faking his community service reports that claimed he had completed his mandatory work.

A review by the DA found "significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."

In one case, the DA alleged he was actually jetting off to Cancun, Mexico, when he claimed he cleaned up trash in his home state of Virginia.

The probation was initially revoked last month following a hit-and-run allegation against the `Fine China` singer. It was reinstated with the modification of 1,000 more hours of community labour, one day after the traffic-violation charge was dismissed by a judge.

Brown showed up in court during the proceedings. He didn`t speak other than to agree to the deal. His labour options include Caltrans or highway cleanup, beach cleanup and graffiti removal.

He is expected to complete the 1,000 hours by August 25, 2014.
