Chris Brown's sentencing for his felony assault on Rihanna has been delayed three weeks because the terms of his six-month community labor sentence have yet to be clarified.

"We still have not received from Virginia what their community labor proposal would be," said L.A. Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg at a hearing Wednesday. "I do not favor community service, I favor something along the lines of Caltrans [freeway cleanup]."

The sentencing was rescheduled to Aug. 27.

Brown attended the hearing with his mother and three others. Rihanna did not attend.

In a deal with prosecutors struck last month, Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna, and is expected to be sentenced to five years probation and six months – more than 1,400 hours – of community labor. He'll also be ordered to complete a year of domestic violence classes and to pay fines. A second felony charge of making criminal threats is expected to be dropped.
