Chris Brown Due Back In Criminal Court

Chris Brown is due back in a Los Angeles courtroom to enter a plea to charges he beat and threatened his girlfriend, Rihanna.

The 19-year-old's arraignment is scheduled for Monday afternoon. It has been nearly two months since Brown was accused of an early morning attack on 21-year-old Rihanna before the Grammys; both were supposed to perform at the show but withdrew.

Brown was charged on March 5 with two felonies — assault likely to cause great bodily harm and making criminal threats.

The "Run It!" singer's arraignment was delayed until Monday.

If convicted of those charges, Brown's potential punishment ranges from probation to nearly five years in prison.

Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is not expected to attend the proceedings.
