Chris Brown’s latest bid for freedom has been denied, and now he faces jail time until June.

The Northern Neck Regional Jail, where Grammy-winner Chris Brown remains under supervision in Warsaw, Va., on Wednesday, April 23. Superior Court Judge Victor Greenburg denied to release Brown from custody.

The singer was arrested and jailed at the beginning of last month after he was dismissed from a rehab center, where he was attending court-ordered anger management treatment.

The judge overseeing the case ruled Brown should remain behind bars until his assault case in Washington, D.C. was heard.

That was due to begin this week, but proceedings have stalled following his bodyguard’s refusal to testify.

The minder, Christopher Hollosy, has already been found guilty of assaulting 20-year-old Parker Adams outside a hotel last year.

Brown’s trial has now been postponed until June, and when the singer’s legal representatives asked the Los Angeles judge who sentenced him to jail time to free him he refused, according to TMZ.com.

Reports suggest Brown will now be flown back to Los Angeles, where he’ll remain in jail until June.

He could land a further four years behind bars if the eventual ruling in the assault case is deemed a violation of his probation following his 2009 conviction for beating his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
