LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A California judge on Wednesday agreed to postpone the sentencing of singer Chris Brown for the assault of his pop star girlfriend, Rihanna.

Rihanna did not attend Brown's hearing on Wednesday, where a judge was expected to impose five years of probation and about 1,400 hours in "labor-oriented service."
