LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors say Chris Brown's sentencing for beating Rihanna has been moved up at his lawyer's request.

Brownwas scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday, but the hearing has been rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

Brown is expected to receive five years of probation and six months of community labor.

His sentencing earlier this month was delayed after a judge learned that authorities in Virginia, where Brown wants to serve probation, hadn't yet agreed to a probation plan.

Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in June. He was arrested after the pair fought hours before February's Grammys.

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, said Tuesday that he did not expect there to be any more problems with the sentencing.
