Bobby Brown gets one year of community service

Singer will mentor kids in plea deal

Bobby Brown is set to do an entire year of community service in Brockton, MA.

The Boston native was arrested for possession of cocaine in December, and asked the police not to bring charges against him.

He got his wish and no criminal charges will issue, as Brown opted to carry out community service by mentoring children and young adults in the underprivileged city.

Brown’s attorney Stephanie Soriano told the Boston Herald that the 39-year-old singer will begin community service within a couple of months.
